We started by painting with Jello. I mixed some of the powder into water and let Spencer paint with it. The powder didn't dissolve completely, so the paint had little undissolved Jello crystals in it for a nice glitter effect. Spenc seemed to really enjoy this project. Once the picture dried, I cut a J out of it. Here is a short video of him Jello painting.
We made a jellyfish for our next project. Spencer Jello painted a coffee filter. Once it dried I stapled streamers to it (unfortunately the only streamers I had on hand were birthday-themed ones, so the jellyfish is festive).
Finally, we made a tambourine by coloring on paper plates and then stapling them together, leaving a small section opened. Spencer spooned rice into the opened section and then I finished stapling it closed. Once complete, Spenc had a jam session. Enjoy a video of his jam session below.
