Training up Tuesday: Eggciting Easter Fun!

Here is a fun Easter treat that your children will LOVE. My 15 year old sister still loves to make these every year and my 2 year old gobbled them right up this weekend. It's really inexpensive, easy and fun for the whole family!

Easter Egg Jello Jigglers
-2 large boxes of your favorite flavor or color of Jello
-2 1/2 cups of bowling water
-Favorite Easter themed molds (try Dollar store but Target & Walmart definitely have them)

Egg mold~scary looking! Think this is really for implants or Egg Jigglers--Ha! :)
Spray Jello mold w/ nonstick spray margarine. Pour Jello mix into a bowl or measuring cup. Pour boiling water on top of Jello mix. Mix together. Pour into mold. Refrigerate for 3 hours.

Voila (notice that 3 were already eaten)!
One HOPPY girl!
Happy jiggling!

One more thing...speaking of eggs, a fun homemade craft you can do to teach your children about the REAL Easter story is make your own Resurrection Eggs. Click here for a step by step guide.

We're doing the resurrection eggs for the first time this year. I love it... even though our boys are still a bit young, they like opening the eggs. :)

Cute idea. I just saw a display of jello molds that were free wyb Jello at my local Raleys.

Cute! I bought the pre-made Resurrection eggs at the Christian bookstore, too. I heard Miss Pattycake on a FamilyLife radio program over the weekend talking about them as well. We have her Easter DVD, but Kate hasn't been into it. Maybe next year! (My nieces LOVED Miss Pattycake!)
