Finger Jello

ages 3-6


3 boxes 4-serving size Jello, all the same color; 4 1-ounce packets unflavored gelatin; a large heatproof bowl; 9 x 13 inch pan

Activity Detail

Most kids love food they can eat with their fingers and if the item is a bright, vivid color, all the better! Finger Jello fits both those attributes perfectly. Just grab a couple of hungry kids and would-be cooks help. Then, combine 3 boxes of Jello, preferably the same color, (4-serving size), 4 1-oz packets of unflavored gelatin, and 4 cups of boiling water in a large heatproof bowl. Pour into a lightly greased (with vegetable oil), 9 x 13 inch pan and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Gather your helpers again to cut your creation into fun shapes either with a knife or cookie cutters. Firmer and less likely to melt than "Jello Jigglers," these treats are as much fun to eat as they are to make!

Thanks for the tip to add unflavored gelatin. It really helps make that finger Jello stronger and more kid-proof!
