January 13, 2021 | Just For Kids

February 14 is Valentine’s Day, a day to show people you care ... or maybe love them. Tell them with a heart-shaped note. All you need is paper, pen, scissors and maybe some stickers. Or show you care by ...

  1. Cooking dinner.
  2. Write a poem or a list of why you like them.
  3. Create a scavenger hunt.
  4. Would they like a back rub?
  5. Tell them.

Or ... what better way to say "I love you" than with slime?


  • ½ cup clear Elmer’s glue
  • ½ teaspoon borax powder
  • Water
  • Food coloring
  • Fine glitter or confetti glitter


  1. In one bowl, add a ½ cup each of water and the glue.
  2. Mix well.
  3. Stir in the food coloring, fine glitter and/or confetti flitter. Add in as much or as little as you like.
  4. In a second bowl, add a ½ cup of water and the borax. Mix together.
  5. Slowly stir the second bowl's mixture into the first bowl. Mix the goop until all the liquid has been absorbed.
