Cooking with Kids: Ocean Jello Cups

So fun and so simple! We love this little recipe and it is PERFECT for a reading of “This Is Not My Hat” by Jon Klassen (one of our favorites). Here’s the super simple recipe:

You will need:

  • Blue Jello
  • Swedish Fish
  • Spray Cream
  • Clear Cups

Here’s how we did it:

  1. Make the jello the day before (or at least a few hours before)
  2. Start with a cup, add a few scoops of jello, then a few Swedish fish, and then spray some cream on top! 
  3. Don’t forget to let the kids do as much as they can– a little mess is worth the opportunity to explore and learn important skills!]
  4. Enjoy!
