I have been doing this fun sensory activity with my kids for years. My oldest ( 6 years old ) started doing this activity when he was 6 months old. I found this idea many years ago on Pinterest. Sensory activities have so many benefits for our babies. Not only are babies exploring their 5 senses, but they are also learning to explore and exercising their creativity!
Urban Child Institute explains, your baby’s brain will double in size in the first two years. With so much growth happening, it important to help explore as many beneficial activities as possible.
When shopping for this project you can buy plain gelatin or sugar free Jello. I made the mistake of buying regular Jello. Baby Atlas got to experience a little bit of a sugar rush. I personally would not use red Jello. I find that it stains the hands and body easy. Make sure to get baby down to diaper or clothes you don’t mind getting messy. Even without the red Jello this activity gets very messy.
The activity is very self-explanatory.
Step 1: Buy any Jello at the store.
Step 2: Follow the directions on the side of the box to prep jello.
Step 3: Add baby rings and toys to the mixture before placing in the fridge.
Step 4: Take bowl out of fridge and take a butter knife and cut the edge around the bowl rim. This will help it come out easier.
Step: 5: Place baby on mat or in highchair and Enjoy the fun!
Step 6: After all the fun just give that sweet baby a bath! Nothing is cuter than a baby in a bubble bath.
I can’t wait to share more sensory activities. I hope you Enjoy this one!
