I am so tired of people giving my kid candy! For the last couple of years, I’ve chosen to take matters into my own hands, and give non-candy gifts for valentine’s day and halloween, hoping that other parents catch on and do the same. I feel like I’m constantly trying to ward off a bombardment of candy with my kid. I can’t go the bank or the grocery store without someone offering my child a lollipop. Candy is so readily available these days because it’s all made with corn syrup, therefore it’s CHEAP. I feel like there wasn’t such an abundance of candy in the 90’s…like, if you got candy it was a big deal because we didn’t get it all the time. Times have changed! Anyway, enough of my rant, let’s do something fun.
Last year, we made heart shaped crayons, which was a big hit! This year, I’m making slime, or silly putty as some call it, and we are going to play off the words “will you be my Valen-slime?”
Cute, right?! This project is fun to do with your kids and the parents and kids at school will be thrilled to receive something they can actually play with rather than another piece of candy. Here is my video tutorial on how to make it!
