Recently we had some jell-o races. They turned out to be a lot of fun (but the pictures are not so great)
The first game we played was a Jell-o slurp.
1.Each kid had a plate of Jell-o and a straw (large straws like they have at McDonalds work a lot better as they allow more Jell-o to pass through)
3. See which kid can slurp up all their Jell-o first!
The second Jell-o game we played was quite messy, but fun to. In fact my kids ask to play this one a lot.
1. Give each kid a small bowl of unmade Jell-o. Just the powder. Trust me don't do do too much, I wasn't sure the first time we played this (the time in the pictures) and each kid had WAY to much Jell-0. Just do a TBS or 2.
2. Think of eating a Lic-A-Stix. You know the candy where you get a candy stick, you lick it and dip it in the candy sugary stuff and lick off....Well, this is similar. But instead each kid has powdered Jell-o and their finger. The goal is to lick your finger, dip it in the bowl and lick it off. The first too eat their whole bowl wins.
3. Plan on red, or blue, (or whatever color of Jell-o you choose) colored fingers for the next few days. My kids sported their freshly colored fingers with pride!
Run to the store and pick up some Jell-o for some fun family games today!
