Aha! Now that I didn’t know. I thought we were all in little categories. Glad to know that we’re all in the same club really.

You have introduced a great thing, really. This is a great relieve for moms. I hated these painting staffs because of the fear, my kids may swallow it.

I’ve never thought of painting with Jell-o. My daughter love it!

I love the jello idea. You can also make an “edible paint” by adding a bit of food coloring to sweetend condensed milk. It dries really shiny.

Never thought of jello! We may have to try jello! I know the kids will love that!

Thats ingenious! Lol
I’m going to have to try painting with jello sometime :D
I’m all up for trying new things!

Lovin’ the jello! Looks like a ton of fun — we’ve tried pudding before but never jello. Maybe that would entice my finger-painting-phobic three-year-old to give it a shot! ;)
