SL(I’M)E YOURS

I asked my son what he thought would be a good thing to give his classmates for Valentine’s Day, and to my surprise, he answered “SLIME”!  I am clearly raising a little charmer!  So, in the spirit of true love (of all things slimy), I set out to figure out how to make his request work.  We tried out a few different recipes for slime- and Maureen, of Anders Ruff, kindly designed a tag to go along with our slimy Valentine! If you have a little guy or gal that would love to give the gift of slime…here’s your chance to make it shine! Tell them “I’m Yours”!
