Digging In Jello {Playing With Baby, Day 11}

I did a little brainstorming session to come up with a list of fun new activities for my ten month old and decided to share them with you over the next month in a series called 20 Days of Playing With Baby.  None of these ideas are Earth shattering, supper cool, never been done before activities but maybe you haven’t tried them before or maybe they will help spark a fun new activity of your own.

For this activity I used:

  • 2 Boxes of Jello
  • Small plastic toys
  • Muffin pan

Henry loves to squish his food so why not have him squish and dig for something fun!  For this activity I placed a small plastic dinosaur in each of the cups of my silicone muffin pan.  I then prepared the Jello as indicated on the box and poured it into each of the cups.Digging In Jello {Playing With Baby, Day 11} - finddailyjoy.com

After the Jello solidified I popped a few of the cups out and placed them on an old sheet (used as a paint drop cloth in the past but don’t worry the yucky paint was on the other side) and let Henry explore.Digging In Jello {Playing With Baby, Day 11} - finddailyjoy.com

It didn’t take long for him to pull out the dinosaurs.Digging In Jello {Playing With Baby, Day 11} - finddailyjoy.com

Then he spent most of the time squishing the Jello and flinging it around.Digging In Jello {Playing With Baby, Day 11} - finddailyjoy.com

And finally decided to eat it.  I didn’t let him have too much though.  Sorry kid, maybe when you’re older I’ll make these as a fun dessert.Digging In Jello {Playing With Baby, Day 11} - finddailyjoy.com
