Jell-O Jigglers Space Theme Mold Kit
The start of our weekend was filled with sunshine & soccer, but then by Sunday afternoon rain & dark clouds had come our way. Soccer tournaments and games were cancelled, so now I had 3 munckins running around ready to start their own soccer game in my kitchen. Argh!! I had to find something to put the “stop” on the mayhem. During the week my dear cousin gave us a Jell-O Jigglers Mold Kit that she found at Wal-Mart. Kids love to make jello, eat jello &, if there anything like mine, they try to eat it with their hands. This would be a perfect family fun time activity that everyone could get it on.
The Jell-O Jigglers was a space theme kit that I knew all my kiddos would enjoy. It came with one Space Mold Tray, one 6 oz. box of Berry Blue Jell-O and one 6 oz. box of Lemon Jell-O. The directions read just like the regular directions to making Jell-O….add boiling water, stir & let sit in fridge for 3 hours. The only difference was when using the mold I needed to spray each section of the tray with cooking spray.
Here are a few pics of jiggly process…
Even though the directions asked you to wait 3 hours until firm I left them in the fridge overnight. I figured this would give them more time to set so I wouldn’t have any problems taking them out the mold. Removing from the mold wasn’t as tricky as I thought. The directions called for the tray to sit in warm water for 15 seconds then turn over on plate & shake out……or should I say “jiggle” out. I had to shake quite a bit to get these bad boys loose, but they popped right out…easy-peasy!
The kids can’t wait to try other flavors & colors with the mold trays. If you were having a children’s Space or Astronaut theme party these would be perfect snacks for little hands.
Fun Fact: Did you know that you can make Glowing Jigglers?!? Dissolve 1 pack of Jello-O in 3/4 boiling water then stir in 1/2 cup of tonic water. These molds will glow under a flourescent black party light. Wow! Who knew?!? I found this recipe on the back of the Jigglers box. I wish I had peeped this before because my kiddos would have loved this….hmmm…maybe next time.
The Jello-Jigglers were a lot of fun for my kids and I to make. Yummy treats & fun family time….Perfect! 🙂
Have you and your family had a fun activity that you whipped up on a rainy day that you’d like to share? I’d love to hear from you! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by A.I.M.! 🙂
