I started off by mixing up some jello and placing a few cars inside. I already knew at this point that it was not going to work out the way I wanted it to. I only had one package of jello and really needed much much more….like at least 4 packages. I was only able to make a tiny mold and couldn’t fit as many cars as I wanted to.
After the mold was set, I dumped it out on the table. I really hoped that it would be one solid mold and that J would have to dig out each car.
However, it turned out looking less like a mold, and more like a mess!
But, it really did turn out ok. J really liked digging in the jello and playing with his cars. So, let’s just call this another really good sensory and messy play activity.
Think about it. J felt the cold, slimy texture and heard the squishy sounds of the jello.
And, he smelled and tasted the yummy sweetness of the jello.
So, I won’t call this a total failure because J still had fun and learned a lot.
Playing with gooey cars is so much fun!
