Every Friday Claire brings home a homework sheet with assignments for the next week. There are usually 9 options, and she has to choose four. This week (in October) her class was learning about the weather, and one of the homework options was to make "Jello Skies" - so obviously, it was a must do.
To make them, we first prepared a package of blue Jello (I think it was blueberry) and let it partially gel. We then "raked" it with forks and layered it in small clear cups with Cool Whip - blue skies and fluffy white clouds.
We all enjoyed tasting the results - such a fun assignment!
