Art in the Park (with Jell-O)

Finished Project!

Our friend Natalie hosted an amazing "Art in the Park" activity for all our friends and kids. She brought all the supplies to make a great smelling piece of art using Jell-O and glue.

Supplies Needed:
  1. Fruit Bowl (click to download)
  2. Jell-O in these flavors: Strawberry, Pineapple, Grape, Raspberry, Lime, Lemon, Orange, Cherry & Banana
  3. Elmers Glue (or generic brand)
  4. Paintbrush for each child
  5. Paper cups or other similar item to hold each flavor of Jell-O
  6. Paper cup or other similar item to hold the glue

Directions:

  1. Print out your Fruit Bowl (one for each child) and have them color the bowl any color they want.
  2. Color the stems & leaves of the fruit green.
  3. Pour some glue in a paper cup
  4. Pour each flavor of Jell-O in it's own paper cup (NOT with the glue and don't mix the flavors). Label your cups! Many of the Jell-O's are the same color, but not the same scent.
  5. Take your paintbrush and dip it in the glue cup.
  6. Paint ONE fruit at a time (for the orange you can paint both). After the entire fruit is covered with glue, pour the matching scent of Jell-O onto your fruit. Pour any excess back into the cup.
  7. Repeat with each fruit until it's covered.
  8. Smell and enjoy!
