Guest Chef - Boaz and Jello Jigglers

He's a Prodigy, what can I say...only two years old (and way too busy to sit still for a bio photo)and already very comfortable around the kitchen. I shouldn't be surprised, since he's been busy, giving his stamp of approval on the utensils ever since he was 9 months old.

I've previously shared his cookie making expertise and yesterday was Jello day. So I asked him to teach us his technique and he graciously agreed.

First get your sou-chef to find cute cookie cutters...I suggest these barnyard animals. You'll have to read Grandma's article for FoodTV to find out where to get them.

Next, preferably the day before, so you can just make these jigglers whenever the mood strikes you, get her to create the "dough" using your favorite Jello and fruit juice (here's the recipe).

Once the "dough" is arranged on the table (the recipe tells you how to do it) ...


...it's time to get creative. Punch out the shapes...


...and eat.

Then it's time for a nap...after all, it's hard work managing that sou-chef.

What's your favorite food activity for kids?
