Spooky Halloween Jello Specimen Jars

Spooky Halloween Jello Specimen Jars By: NotSoIdleHands.com

When Halloween time comes a~callin’ I get in the mood to try creeping out my kiddos {which isn’t hard cuz they’re kinda lily~livered}. I don’t go too far, or course, but when I found these cool gummies at target I knew I wanted to do something fun with them.

Well, I have these sweet Weck jars and I thought they would look cool with green Jello and creepy things floating inside….like specimen jars in a spooky lab.

So, I just started with green gelatin, jars and gummy teeth and snakes.

Whip up a batch or 2 or the green jiggly stuff and pour into your cool jars…

…leave a little room at the top {maybe 1/2 inch}.

Then refrigerate 30 minutes~1 hours till just starting to set up. Larger jars will be closer to the hour mark. This is when you add the ghastly gummies and push them down to where you want them to be “floating.”

*if they are added at the beginning, when it’s still liquid, the gummies will dissolve….not kidding*

Wait another few hours, and then serve these jars of wobbly sweetness up to your little creatures.

I like the snake with his head poking out….he’s just curious, I guess.

The teeth are cool too…like some elderly vampires are missing theirs LOL

My 8 year old was creeped out…she said she would happily eat it with regular gummy worms, but she draws the line at the spooky snakes. She wanted plain Jello thank~you~very~much.

Have fun!
