  • 6 3 oz Jell-O packets in the colors of your choice one for every color in the rainbow
  • 2 cups of cool water for each Jell-O packet
  • popsicle mold
  1. Mix your first packet of Jell-O into two cups of cool water.
  2. Pour a measured amount of Jell-O water into your popsicle mold. The amount will depend on how many colors you decide to use and how big your popsicle molds are.
  3. Place the popsicle mold into the freezer until the Jell-O water is frozen. About an hour for each layer.
  4. Now repeat steps 1-3 until your popsicle molds are full!
  5. Finally, when you get to the last layer, you’re ready to insert the popsicle sticks into the popsicle molds. But, since we froze our Jell-O water in layers, the popsicle sticks don’t easily insert into the already-frozen layers. To fix this problem, we used the handle of a small spoon—but whatever metal thing you can find that is approximately the same shape and size as your popsicle sticks will work. Warm the utensil in hot water, then gently insert it into the already frozen popsicles. Pull out the utensil and insert the popsicle stick.
  6. Then freeze that last layer!
  7. To eat: Run the popsicle mold under warm water, and wiggle out your rainbow masterpieces!
Recipe Notes

*It is very important that you wait for each layer to freeze before adding the new layer, otherwise your colors will mix together. Alternately, if you leave the layers to freeze for too long, the layers may not stick together, and separate when you remove the popsicles from their molds.
