Day 123: Make jelly today

Day 123 of #365 Creative #Ideas to do with your kids: Do you make jelly with your kids? Every child loves jelly and it is one of the easiest products to make!
You will need:
fancy cups or containers to
set the jelly in
packets of jelly (whichever
flavours you prefer)
a bowl

a measuring jug
How to make rainbow jelly:
1. Make one batch of jelly according to the packet instructions.
2. Divide the jelly between six containers, pouring 2 cm of jelly into each. Place in the fridge and allow to set. See tip below.
3. When the jelly is almost set, choose your next jelly colour and repeat steps 1–2. Use a spoon
to gently pour the jelly into the container over the set layer.
For the rainbow jelly, refrigerate each layer before adding the next. Don’t rush the layering of the rainbow jelly; let it set well, otherwise the different types of jelly will mix.
