Getting Creative with Jell-o

People are SO creative with Jell-o these days. The holiday season is the perfect time to experiment with fun ideas that contain Jell-o.  These desserts can be kid-friendly, or even something to take to an adults only party depending  on the ingredients. We found these beautiful desserts and wanted to share them with you. Some require a special mold while others can be made with items you probably already have in your kitchen.

Start a New Tradition This Holiday Season

The lights are up, the air is cold and bells are ringing! It’s that time of year again…the holiday season! What’s a better way to spend this season than with your family? Here a some super fun activities for you and your family! Why not start a new family tradition?

Have a holly Jolly Christmas 1


The lights!
Drive down to see the city Christmas lights all lit up. They’re gorgeous, extravagant and the kids will be absolutely stunned. You and your special someone can also check out the lights for a cozy date night.

Visit Santa!
Head over to your local mall and get the kids ready for pictures with Santa. Remind them to have a few things in mind that they want to tell Santa about. They’ll be super excited for Santa to come this year.

Make Hot Chocolate!
What else says cozy fun besides hot chocolate. Everyone can pick out or decorate their own mug for this delicious treat. Also add in some freshly baked cookies for extra deliciousness.

Take the kids ice skating!
It’s the perfect time to take the kiddos out for ice skating. This is fun, exercise, the kids won’t be able to get enough and this could be a new tradition for your family.

Find the perfect Christmas Tree!
Maybe instead of buying your Christmas tree at the store, your family like to cut down a new Christmas tree each year. Let me just say that I applaud you for that. Instead of going alone, bring the kids to help you pick out your tree. They will love the experience.

Decorate the Christmas tree as a family!
Nothing says holiday family fun like decorating the tree together. The kids will have a blast putting up ornaments and for even more fun, have them handmake a few. Your Christmas tree will be the envy of all the neighbors.
