I swore I was never going to do it. "It's too much work!" "The kids don't even care!" "I'm not too proud for store bought cards- I chunk them anyway!" are all things I said to myself.
But for some reason this year, I thought, "Why not??"
So I made them. We made them. We made Valen-slime. It was actually super cute! My kids LOVE slime. They love helping in the kitchen. So we did it this year.
And it was a lot of fun! They LOVED getting into the slime-making. It was like magic to them! And don't even get me started on how stinking EASY it is to make slime! Good grief! The hardest part was finding the Borax at the store. Here is a great recipe if you want one...
I also found some free little printables to attach. We (meaning I!) printed, we (again I) cut, I poked holes, I tied ribbons... And other than a little scissor and finger accident, it wasn't too bad.
This was the end product (but I changed the whole ribbon part- so ignore this one and imagine better).
Was it a lot of work? Yes. Will the kids care? Probably not. Would we have been just as happy with store bought? Absolutely. Will I do it again? Probably not any time soon!
But was hanging out with these cuties totally worth it?! ABSOLUTELY!
