Jello "Sand" Art

We were challenged this month at the random acts of craftiness at His & Hers blog to use an item from a grocery store, which has a link up party in January for sharing these projects.  I wanted to have quick and easy craft because this month has been quite busy. I also wanted to make something along with my toddler.  I picked up this container at Target and then purchased some jello. 

Wynn and I created sand art using the jello to display in her room. We are slowly but surely adding items to the top of her bookshelf. Wynn really loves to have this rainbow in her room. The total cost was around seven dollars because the Jello was on sale at two for a dollar.  

I am looking forward to adding some more homemade projects to her room as she continues to grow.  Thank you for stopping by!

  1. How cute! Love the colors that the jello provided! You are the queen of thinking outside the box!

  2. What a fun project. So colorful and easy. Great idea. Now, I am curious, it looks very inviting for a 2 year old to decide to open and play with. Are you prepared for that :)

    1. Ha! She hasn't touched it since we made it. It's a little out of her reach at the moment, but yes I'm prepared. :)

  3. So fun! The colors from the jello really show up nicely don't they? I think any kid would be fascinated with this project!

  4. I love the many layers of soft color! Very pretty!

  5. What a fun idea! I have a few boxes of Jello that will probably outdate before we eat them (does Jello even expire??) and this is a fun idea on how to use it instead of tossing it!

  6. What a fun, and adorable project! I was very happy to see you featured at Silo Hill Farm--deservedly so--you have a great blog!

  7. Jello? Never would have thought of that! Great idea!

  8. So cute! Pinning!

  9. Very interesting idea! My granddaughters would love something like that in their room, and for such an inexpensive price, it would be fun to make!

  10. Super cute, fun and easy! My kiddo needs to try this!
