Easy Fall Craft For Preschool kids

Every time I work with jello, I wonder is this a craft or food? I feel as it is kind of both, and when you add a preschool kid into the mix it usually ends up a messy project. However, we all know that the more mess you have, the more fun you enjoy! Jakobi and Mason love to cook, and this food craft involves a lot of stirring and cleaning of silicone pans. Just perfect duties for little hands. Enjoy this Easy Fall Craft For Preschool Kids and look forward to more crafts upcoming for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

  1. Those are so much fun! And best of all, they are edible! My kids love when we make edible crafts! It’s their favorite kind. Thankfully they are very willing to let me take pictures of it before they begin the eating, because they like to have a picture to remember what it looked like as well. That way we still have the “visual” display of the craft; just like a regular craft one would create and display.

  2. Those are really cute. I like the shape and the education factor. Plus, getting to eat it when they finished playing is always fun.
