Last week I gave you a hint of an activity idea I would challenge you with this week. You’ll have to prepare a bit for this one but I promise a lot of laughter.
Make some gelatin… any color or flavor will do. Both my kiddos are partial to blue so that is what we used. You need half a 9×13 pan of squares for each kiddo (at least, you might want more for older kids). And you’ll need to make the jiggly recipe so you’ll be able to cut it into squares.
Once the gelatin is completely and solidly gelled, cut it into 1 inch squares. Give each child a plate and their share of the gelatin. We used a timer but this could be an open ended activity. Mine continued after the timer went off for awhile. The goal is to build a structure (that doesn’t fall over) out of the gelatin squares. The tallest or most elaborate structure wins! The prize? They get to eat their creation!
Hint… we found using toothpicks to be a very effective way to build taller structures.
After the fun is over have everyone wash their hands before touching ANYthing else!
If you tackle this unique construction project, we’d love to see your creations. Snap a picture before the buildings are devoured and share it with us on our Facebook page!
