When I was making the edible jelly worms I had a lot of jelly left over. I decided to have another try at the activity I attempted on Day 12. I didn’t have enough leftovers to cover the cars but I did have some animals from Pound Land.
I placed the animals in the bottom of a bowl and poured the remaining jelly over the top. The jelly ended up in the fridge for two nights.
This time when I tipped it onto the Tuff Spot the jelly had completely encased the animals. The additional gelatine certainly made a difference.
Adam looked pretty disgusted at the prospect of having to touch the jelly.
To be honest even I was a little put off. He didn’t mind using the scoops though to try to free the animals. However he soon resorted to using his fingers.
Whilst he was digging out the animals I placed the edible worms from yesterday onto the Tuff Spot. Whilst I was experimenting with getting the worms out of the straws Adam alternated between playing with the edible worms activity and digging out the animals.
Eventually we managed to dig out all of the animals.
I flipped the jelly over to see if we could push the animals into it. Adam had other plans and pushed a straw into it. He discovered it made a circle imprint so carried on. He then realised the straws would stay upright if he left them in.
I am glad I re-attempted the activity from Day 12. The second attempt was certainly more successful!
