I found this idea online somewhere, but after blog-hopping for awhile, I can't find it again! Know that this isn't my original idea, but we sure had fun with it!
- 4 boxes of blue Jell-o, prepared according to the Jigglers recipe
- Small glass fishbowls (Hobby Lobby had their glassware 50% off so these were only $0.50 each!)
- Swedish fish (or other gummy sea creatures)
- Chocolate rocks (I found them at Wal-Mart)
Prepare the Jell-o according to the Jigglers recipe. I would suggest doing this before telling the children that you are making a fun craft as to avoid the "Is it ready yet?" question every 2 minutes for 3 hours. Learn from my mistakes, people.
Cut up the Jigglers to serve as the water.
Add the chocolate rocks to the bottom of the fish bowl.
Then add the "water" and fish to the bowl. And voila...an edible aquarium!
And then comes the best part...
