This is one of those activities that I planned on way, but ended up no where close to what I expected.
I started off by mixing up some jello and placing a few cars inside. I already knew at this point that it was not going to work out the way I wanted it to. I only had one package of jello and really needed much much more….like at least 4 packages. I was only able to make a tiny mold and couldn’t fit as many cars as I wanted to.
After the mold was set, I dumped it out on the table. I really hoped that it would be one solid mold and that J would have to dig out each car.
However, it turned out looking less like a mold, and more like a mess!
But, it really did turn out ok. J really liked digging in the jello and playing with his cars. So, let’s just call this another really good sensory and messy play activity.
Think about it. J felt the cold, slimy texture and heard the squishy sounds of the jello.
And, he smelled and tasted the yummy sweetness of the jello.
So, I won’t call this a total failure because J still had fun and learned a lot.
Playing with gooey cars is so much fun!
What activities have you done with your children that didn’t quite go the way you expected?

It may not have turned out as a mold, but it sure looks like a messy and fun success to me! What a fun activity. 🙂
