You can grab the free Valentine Slime gift tags at the bottom of this post. We included 2 colors to choose from – pink and red so you can decide which color slime you’d want to make. Or you can make both! We also included a slime safety tag to glue to the back of the tags. This is important if you want to hand these out to other kids as not everyone is aware of slime safety.

Here is what the safety tip tag says:  Slime Safety Tips! This is homemade slime made with love using glue, baking soda and contact lens solution. If you are sensitive to these ingredients, please do not use. Slime is not to be placed in the mouth and you should wash your hands after use. Adult supervision is recommended.
