We’re moving through the alphabet, and I share a sensory idea for each letter.
I bought three boxes of Jello at the grocery store. The kids were intrigued. I’ve never made them Jello before. When I set out the pan on the lawn, they gathered around, anxious for a taste.
I had not intended to have my baby be part of this activity. I’m actually pretty careful about what my babies eat because I want their taste buds to get used to healthy tastes and textures. Not sure Jello fits in there… but she woke up early, and I didn’t have the heart to put her in a swing while the rest of us had fun.
I divided the Jello among five pans so each of my kids could have their own to play with.
Three boxes don’t go very far.
My Two had fun stirring what was left in the pan and mixing it with sticks and grass.
The big kids were most interested in sampling the Jello, and then they were off to play.
A certain little someone had no trouble finding something to do…
After I took this picture I scooped up my baby girl for a bath.
If we do this again, I’ll make more than three batches. Check out these other fun ways to play with Jello!
