Jello Jigglers {Alphabet Summer – Letter J}

One of my favorite things about the Fourth of July was my aunt’s JELLO Jigglers.

Actually, I love everything about the Fourth of July, but these were fun to snatch up in between Marco Polo in the pool, loading up on food, and the big fireworks show.

As Alphabet Summer continues and the Fourth of July is just days away I couldn’t help but get in the kitchen with the kids to make these festive treats.  As soon as I put them on their plates they bounced their fingers on them as if the sole purpose of it was to serve as a personal trampoline for Mr. Index Finger.  Boys.  What can I say.

Since it’s no secret these have been done before you can find the recipe on the JELLO website.  Adding sprinkles is up to you but I think I like them better without.  To make the layers I mixed and chilled one flavor of jello until firm.  I then mixed a second box of JELLO of a different color (I added a few ice cubes to cool it down) and poured over the first layer and put it back in the fridge to firm up.  I think overnight is best before you cut it but a couple hours is doable.

And now I’m going to grab some JELLO {what’s left of it}, sit down on the couch, and refuse to move until July 4.  It’s been a long day and I have a few big projects that I’m excited to share with you.  One of them is the Red Faced Runners Challenge.  Did you get your run in today!?


  1. I love jello jigglers! I was just thinking about them the other day too. Remember all the fun Bill Cosby Jello commercials? Fun times 🙂

  2. What a fun idea!!! Most kids love Jell-o and for a good reason! It satisfies a summer craving, especially when it’s hot out! Most of all, it’s an American icon, so most kids will have great memories of Jell-o’s and fun days at the beach / playground / pool / park / backyard bbq / boat, etc…
