Today we will be doing a jello dig!

This is a fun activity that will keep young kids busy for a while.

You will need:

  • Large Tupperware container or something similar
  • 2 packs of Jello
  • Pot to boil water
  • Measuring cup
  • Small plastic toys
  • A table cloth or floor covering
  • A kid!


Place your plastic toys into the Tupperware container

Boil 2 cups of water and stir in Jello packets

Add 2 cups cold water and let sit to cool for a little while

Pour the Jello mixture into the Tupperware container on top of the toys

Place in the refridgerater for 4 hours to let the Jello set

When done place the table cloth down on the floor (this will be messy!)

Put the Jello down and let your little one have at it!

It is so fun to watch them dig out their toys and enjoy exploring.
