Messy Play - Jelly!

Wednesday, 17 September 2014

For a bit of fun this afternoon, I let Little Miss A loose with a load of jelly!

She wasn't sure at first but then got stuck in. I'd given her a few of her toys that she uses in her sand pit along with a whisk.


She was soon busy transferring the jelly from the box to the bucket. Even attempting to do this with the whisk!

At first she was a bit reticent to actually touch the jelly. I kept putting my hands in and offering it to her. She preferred using the tools rather than getting her hands in. I'm surprised that she didn't even try to eat any! At the end though she got her feet into the box and stomped around a bit. Great fun!


Will definitely do this activity again with Little Miss A. I used two packets of jelly for this activity and made it up the day before. Maybe next time I'll try using different flavours of jelly so there are a variety of colours.

So we've now done spaghetti, shaving foam and jelly. Anyone got any ideas for other messy play?

  1. This looks like a great idea, I'll keep it in mind for when my little one is older x

  2. I can't wait to do this when T gets a little older!! Rainbow jelly was one of my faves when I worked at preschool, lots of different coloured jelly with different objects inside. Ice is a good one too, coloured ice with objects such as mini beasts or sea animals inside. #toddlerapproved

    1. Thanks Lianne. Definitely want to do this with lots of different colours of jelly especially as trying to teach LO colours at the moment. We love using ice too!

    1. Glad it's given you a nudge. It's given me a nudge as well to get organised to do this again with more colours!

    1. Thanks Leandra! I don't mind messy play stuff if we can do it outdoors as it's so much easier to clean up! Definitely will have to meet-up. My parents live in Northants!
