Fun Jello Petri Dish Treats for Kids

By bellalimento |

We’ve been playing with fun ways to enjoy Jell-O a lot lately. We’ve done “WATERMELON” JELLO SHOOTERS, LEMON DROP JELLO SHOTS {both of which can easily be made non-alcoholic} as well as fun RED WHITE & BLUE JELLO STARS.  While drooling ehem browsing around Pinterest I came across these insanely adorable Jell-O Petri Dishes and knew I’d have to try my hand at them. My kids love anything that’s scientific in nature and ate these right up. They’d be perfect for a Mad Scientist themed birthday party!Jello Petri Dish Treats
What you’ll need:

3 ounces berry blue Jell-O mix
1 cup hot water
1 cup cold water
assorted gummy treats

What to do:
