Sensory fun activities are a favorite in our home. I love seeing these little hands explore, learn and discover all while relaxing their body and mind and thinking this is the most fun they've ever had! On this day we made jello. Not jello to eat, but it does feel pretty cool and made an afternoon for my kids very exciting.

What You'll Need

How We Did It

The gelatine we used for this is just plain gelatine, no sugar, color or flavorings.

We prepared it as directed on the package. This varies a little depending on the brand you have, but basically it involves adding water--which my two-year old loved helping with.

We placed it in the refrigerator to set.

Once it was firm I turned it out onto a platter and added a few small bowls for the kids to mix some food color and water in.

Using droppers they began to explore the colors with the gelatine.

Emma loved mixing the colors right on the gelatine form.

It was only a matter of time before she discovered the best part about gelatine.

This activity was a great one for some outside sensory play. It was a messy one, but well worth it for the smiles it got.
