This activity was total bliss for my kids. They entirely enjoyed making the biggest mess possible  I highly encourage you to make this up and try it out. The laughs and shrieks of excitement from your kids make the clean up worth while, I promise!


For the Gello

  • 1 sachet of gelatine
  • Hot water
  • Food colouring
  • Container

Add food colouring to water and mix gelatin up as per packet instruction. Stir well and pour into a container. Leave to set for 3 hours or overnight.



For the coloured pasta

  • One packet of spagetti pasta
  • Food colouring
  • Water
  • Container

Add food colouring to water, add pasta and simmer until cooked. Drain and set aside until fully cooled.

You don’t have to do both of these activities at once. We did as we were talking about alien planets and what the surface may be like there.

The children decided it would be a gooey spagetti surface where dinosaurs roamed….so that’s what we created!

Lots of fun!
