Tonight we watched Disney's Planes.
While the girls napped, this guy helped me prep one of tonight's movie treats.
We made these cute little cloud and sky treats with jello and whipped cream.
Boil 2 cups of water.
"It's boiling, Mom!"
Mix in two packets of blue jello
Stir in 2ish cups of ice cubes.
Then pop the jello in the fridge to thicken (ours took about 15 minutes). Once we started pouring it into our cups, we realized it still was too watery and mixed a little with our whipped cream. Next time around we may even leave it in as long as 20 or 25 minutes.
While the jello thickened, we made the whipped cream.
We put 1 cup of heavy cream into the mixer and mixed until it started to thicken.
Add 1/8 cup sugar and mix until very stiff.
The taste test...
I found these little plastic cups in Target's Dollar Spot. Thanks Target, you never disappoint!
We poured a little of the blue jello into the bottom of each cup.
Then smashed some whipped cream onto the sides in different areas to create the clouds.
Not as pretty as some of the others that I've seen, but the kids loved them!
We also made little planes out of wafer cookies and white chocolate.
Tonight, instead of ordering pizza, we made our own English muffin pizzas. The kids LOVE to do this and they usually are more likely to eat if they helped make them.
