Unleash the Jello!

Today 3 sheets of jello (red, purple, & blue) were unmolded and given to TnT.  They asked if it was for eating, all the while their eyes were as big as silver dollars.  One could sense that these little boys wanted to touch the gelatin more than anything.

Nothing was said to them, except "do what you will with it."  Big T immediately ran into the pantry and grabbed a large container housing oodles of cookie cutters.  They cut out various animal shapes and marveled at their creations (for about 8 minutes) and then the creatures met their squishy demise. 

Artist at work!

Let the happy deconstruction begin!

Texture & color one can taste.

Jello survivors: snake, fish, & gator.

Even out of destruction, a jello puppet can be born.
