We love making Jello jigglers!
It encompasses so many school readiness skills:
- following step by step directions
- reading numbers
- properties of matter exploration
- using tools, like wisks and cookie cutters
- sensory play - in this case ALL five senses, yum!
And one skill that is very difficult: patience.
1 3oz box Jello mix
2/3 cup water
Bring water to a boil. Remove from heat. Add Jello powder. Stir for 2 minutes until powder is dissolved. Pour mixture into a shallow dish (9" pie pan is perfect size). Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Set bottom of dish in hot water for 15 seconds, then put the Jello on a flat surface to be cut into shapes.
