Hello Moms! If your kids are like mine they absolutely love to help out in the kitchen so once a week I make it a habit to cook with my kids. We decided to kick off this week with making Jello Fish cups. My eleven-year-old asked for some Blue-Raspberry Jello when we were in the market the other day and we decided to make some individual Jello cups. We have purchased the mini Jello cups in the past but one isn’t enough and my boys end up eating two at a time. I figured why not use some cups that we had left over from another project and then they would have enough in one serving. Lets get started! Here’s what you will need:


1 box of blue raspberry Jello (You can use more if you like)

Assorted gummy sharks (Wal-Mart Brand) and fish candies (We used Swedish Fish)

9oz Cups

2. Pour liquid Jello into clear plastic cups.

3. Chill for 40 minutes to 1 hour.  I found that one hour was perfect timing. Press gummy sharks and fish into the Jello. We uses a skewer stick to push them down.

4. Return the Jello to the refrigerator. Chill for 3 to 4 hours

Here they are…………….

NaturalbabydolWe started out with five Jello Fish cups and before the kids could remember to snap a shot with our camera there were only two LOL! Needless to say that the kids were in love with their creations. What little one wouldn’t want to enjoy these jello fish cups? These are also great rainy/snow day projects that can be created with ingredients that you more than likely have around the house.

Stay tuned for our next Cooking With Kids Post and if you make these please be sure to tag us on our Cake Instagram page so that we can regram your little ones photos.
