The first season of Trolls: The Beat Goes On, has officially landed on Netflix! Have you and your kids caught this newly released animated series? If you enjoyed the movie, you'll absolutely adore this new show from Dreamworks Animation! The kids and I have been having a blast watching the first season. The show basically picks up where the movie left off, with Poppy about to take her place as queen. All of the beloved characters from Troll Village are featured in the animated series, too.  From Branch, right down to Cloud Guy (and all of his hilarious antics!);  they're all back and ready to delight and entertain your family, with their colorful song-filled adventures!

In celebration of our new favorite kids show on Netflix, we decided  to make these cute non-candy Valentine's Day Trolls Slime Jars, with some super cute Free Printable Trolls themed Valentine's Day Gift Tags.

For the Poppy Pink Glitter Slime

What you'll need (note: recipe will fill 1 slime jar - multiply recipe based on how many slime jars you'll need to fill):

  • 1 c. clear all-purpose craft glue
  • 1 tbsp fine glitter
  • 2 tbsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp saline solution
  • Pink food coloring (generally about 6 drops depending on the brand to achieve desired color)


How to: 

For the Trolls Slime Jars
  1. Start by cutting strips of furry fabric to about 6"L x 5"H (cut as many strips as you'll need for the number of slime jars you're making / filling)
  2. Use heavy craft glue or a low-temp hot glue gun to secure the furry fabric around the perimeter of the jar lid. Use a large dot of heavy craft glue or low-temp hot glue in the center of the fabric - pinch in place for a minute or two to form the top point of your "Troll hair." if using heavy craft glue - use a rubber band to hold the furry fabric in place for about an hour / until the glue has had adequate time to dry.
  3. Use scissors to cut/craft small blue flowers, to create Poppy's flower headband. Use heavy craft glue or low-temp hot glue to assemble the flowers and affix them around the base of the jar lid (refer to images above and below.
For the Poppy Pink Glitter Slime
  1. In a large bowl, combine glue, glitter, and baking soda. Stir mixture until well combined. 
  2.  Add pink food coloring to mixture, stir until well combined.
  3. Add saline solution, stir well until mixture forms into a ball of slime. Add an extra drop or two of saline solution, to create a firmer slime consistency.
  4. Add your slime, to your DIY Trolls Slime Jars, and enjoy! Store slime in your Trolls Slime Jar when not in use. Slime typically lasts about 2 weeks, when stored properly.
  5. If gifting for Valentine's Day, download and print our FREE Printable Trolls Themed Valentine's Day Card / Tags, HERE. Use a hole punch and secure around the perimeter of your slime jar with ribbon or twine, and gift to someone special!
