Oh so good gummy candies

Gummy candies........

6 oz. package of jello any flavor you like
6 enevlopes of knox unflavored gelation
2/3 cup cold water
half of 1/3 cup cold water

-mix well. it will be very gunkie looking..
-let it sit 10 minutes
-(double boiler thingy) boil some water while your letting it sit
I use a big pot and have a metal bowl that sits perfect on the rim. you could use a glass measuring cup
and pot of water.
-once water is boiling put your contianer in and you just want to melt it til all dissolved not really cook it just a gud melt. poor into your molds  put in fridge or freeze and within 30 minutes or so you have gummie candies.

ps. I dont grease the molds they will pop right out.

you can use ice cube trays or candy molds.. I have ice cube trays.

1 package flavored jello
6 packages knox
1/2 cup cold water

in small sauce mix all 3 together and stir constantly til melted pour into molds and pop in freezer for ten minutes....

Great outdoor activity

So the other day my little had a great idea while we were on a nature walk, she wanted to make molds of the tracks we found.
So with a little of plaster of paris and so time we did it! She loves it, she loved finding the tracks and identifing what animal made them, and getting to bring home a momento of are walk.

plaster of paris
bucket to mix
stick to stir

mix the plaster of paris to the directions on the box. pour into tracks and wait for it to harden, some took 10 minutes so to 30 or so before we could pop them out.
Let the little ones make tracks to and make a casting of their own tracks..
This is a deer track, it wass the best track we could find of a deer but I love how it looks like a heart.
