Fun with Finger Jello

When a little friend recently got his tonsils and adenoids out and was sad with his sore throat, we tried to think of something to cheer him up and feel good on his throat.   When we thought of finger jello we realized it was going to be fun for us too.

We made four colors- for each color we used 2 packages of jello combined with 2 1/2 cups boiling water (no cold water) and poured it into an 9x13 pan.  (The girls were able to do all the stirring) Once the jello had set (about 3 hours) the girls used cookie cutters to cut out letters and shapes.  (I had to be the one to lift them out of the pan with a spatula though)

We used the scraps around the cookie cutters to make rainbow parfaits (layered the colors)
