Jelly Dig

A very simple, home learning sensory tray for you to set up for your baby or toddler. Digging for treasure is always fun for kids but digging for treasure in jelly... well that's just even more entertaining! This was one of my go to activities when Arabella was younger. I keep packs of jelly ready to go in the cupboard because this is an activity that never seems to get old! You are bound to have one sticky, messy baby/toddler when finished but they are also guaranteed to have a ball whilst exploring all of their senses in the jelly! What more could they want? A hands on activity exploring the texture of the jelly whilst trialing a safe-taste delicious treat!

What you need:

  • 2 packs of jelly

  • Large tray/dish

  • Large sheet/towel to put down

  • Toys to dig for

What to do:

  1. Separate jelly cubes into a bowl.

  2. Add 1/2 pint of boiling water and stir until dissolved.

  3. Add 1/2 pint of cold water, stir and pour into dish.

  4. Place toys into the jelly.

  5. Put jelly into the fridge and leave overnight to set.
