Wobbly, jiggly and yummy, these jelly-rific ideas are tons of fun to make in the kitchen.

Let's get jiggly with it...

Kids love jelly. They're yummy, wobbly, colourful and a cinch to whip up. Have fun with your lil' ones this school holidays and make tasty jelly delights together. These easy-to-do recipes are a fun project for you and your child to do in the kitchen.

Start by making orange jelly slices. You can even add in orange juice for more flavour. These are great for parties and since jelly is eaten straight from the rind cups, great thing is you won't need to wash up afterwards.


Grab a slice and take a bite!

Orange Jelly Slices


For fun, use different coloured jellies to create rainbow jelly slices.

Serving : 6
Prep Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 10 mins
The jellly needs at least 4 hours to set, overnight is best.

Ingredients

1 Pack of Orange Flavoured Jelly Powder (90g)
2 Cups of Water ( or 1 Cup Water + 1 Cup Orange Juice ) - follow instructions on your jelly packet to determine how much liquid you need
3 Oranges, halved

Method

1. Scoop out flesh from orange halves to make orange rind cups. Place cups in muffin tray.

2. Mix in water with jelly powder. Heat mixture up until the powder dissolves completely into liquid.

3. Pour jelly mixture into rind cups. Try to fill it to the brim.

4. Chill in fridge and allow to set overnight. Then once jelly has set, slice the cups in half to create orange quarters.

Be playful and combine your jelly with gummy sweets. They come in different shapes and sizes so jazz up your jelly with them. We used lime jelly and crocodile gummies to create ours. Pair blueberry jelly with shark gummies for an ocean-themed party or place snake gummies in strawberry jelly for Halloween. The possibilities are endless. Get creative and come up with your own cute pairings.
