Introduction: Rainbow in a Cup

About: I love puppets and making Food! visit my website,

Making a rainbow in a cup is a fun activity to do with children or could be a great diner party desert! Things you need: Red jello Orange jello Yellow jello Green jello Blue jello Lets get started!

Step 1: Red

This is a real simple desert to make! Lets start with the red base layer. Take your red jello and mix in accordance to the instructions on the box. Instead of cold water add ice it will speed up the setting process. Pour the red jello 1-2 inches into your cup depending on how big it is. Place in the fridge for a minimum of 1.5 hours. It doesn't have to be set all the way.   

Step 2: Orange

Now take the cup of red jello out of the fridge. Mix the orange jello and slowly pour on top of the red jello to make the second layer. Put back in the fridge for another 1.5 hours minimum. 

Step 3: Yellow

Take the cup of two layers of jello out of the fridge. Now mix the yellow jello and pour carefully on top of the orange. Make sure the yellow is cooled enough before you pour on top of the orange or it will melt through.  Place back in fridge. 

Step 4: Green

After another 1.5 hours mix the green jello and pour on top of the rest. Evenly dividing the layers. 

Step 5: Blue

The last color! I could not find purple at the store so I ended my rainbow with blue. Though if you run into the same problem you could mix the red and blue jello.
Mix the blue jello and Pour onto the rest of your jello. Now let it sit in the fridge for 2.5 hours to ensure all have set.
