Jello Jigglers

Summer boredom is setting in fast, so I have been trying to do some fun activities with the boys to keep their whining to a minimum entertain them.
The other day we made Jello Jigglers....they are fun to play with and fun to eat!Mix two large boxes or four small boxes of jello {or in my case one big box and two small boxes} with 2 1/2 cups of boiling water. Stir for about two minutes until all the Jello is dissolved. Pour into a 9X13 pan {not a baking sheet like I did...it will be way too thin}, and place in the refrigerator for a couple of hours until the Jello is set.
Get out the cookie cutters...
...and let your kiddos have a blast playing with their food...
...and learning some letters and shapes at the same time!
And when they get tired of play, they have a fun snack to eat!

I remember making those when I was little. My girls don't much care for jello but jiggglers are so firm they might go for it!!

Good idea! I have to try and find the adorable little cutters.

Yummy, what a fun activity. For some reason my jello jigglers never turn out right. I think I don't use the right pan or something. I don't know. Maybe I'll give it another go since it looks like the boys had so much fun.
