Finding a Valentine favor that pleases everyone can be a difficult task. These simple heart slime Valentine cards are fun for both boys and girls!
Valentine’s Day already! I feel like I just got done with Christmas (ok, let’s be real, my back porch Christmas tree is still up). So maybe that’s why I am running a little behind on the school V-day gifts?
My daughter and I have been working on some cute and very girly nail polish Valentine cards this week. And then I needed to think of something for the boys and slime is of course top of mind! But what I really love about these heart slime Valentine cards is that they are great for boys or girls! Everyone loves slime! (Except maybe the parents)

Heart Slime Valentine Cards
When I was growing up, my mom always had a little Valentine treat for us when we woke up on 2/14. It wasn’t anything big but it was always something fun that we looked forward too.
One year we got these stuffed animals that sang the lyrics “Wild thing, you make my heart sing.” So while I was designing these “you make my heart slime” cards, that song was playing on repeat in my head! Isn’t it weird the tidbits of things that you remember from your childhood?
So back to these easy, last minute heart slime Valentine cards! I picked up everything at Walgreens and they take no time to make!
You only need a few things to make these gender neutral Valentine favors.
Heart shaped slime (in the Valentine section of Walgreens)
3M putty (you could use double sided tape or just skip it altogether if you use the bags)
To assemble, print the free printable and trim the paper to create 4 cards. Using your adhesive method of choice, adhere the slime carton to the heart slime Valentine cards.
I was out of card stock and was worried about the slime being to heavy on the regular paper. So I stuck the entire Valentine into a clear favor bag to make sure it stayed altogether.
Then fold over any excess bag and secure it on the back with a piece of tape.
These heart slime Valentine cards are an inexpensive way to send home a non-candy Valentine treat with your child’s school friends.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
