Colored Jello Fun

ages 1-3


Supplies

Ice cube tray, food coloring, clear gelatin

Activity Detail

Follow the directions to create clear gelatin (Knox is a common brand). Then fill up an ice tray with the clear gelatin liquid and put a few drops of different food coloring liquid in each cup. Cool according to the package directions. Once the gelatin has cooled, put one or several 'cubes' into a clear plastic bag and seal with duct tape. Your kids will have a ton of fun squishing around the cubes in the bags. This is also a great way to teach colors names and color blending!

I think it would be fun to use regular, flavored jello for this activity as well, and then let your child eat it!

This activity is fun, but only lasts a few minutes. It takes a bit too long to prepare for only a few minutes of entertainment.
