Take your water balloon fight to the next level by filling balloons with colorful Jell-O. Just make sure this fun but messy activity is played outdoors, in play clothes you don’t mind staining.

Boxes of Jell-O
Funnel or turkey baste

Follow the directions on the Jell-O box to make the gelatin, but before chilling, use a funnel or turkey baster to pour (or squirt) the Jell-O mixture into the balloons. Place the balloons carefully in a fridge to set. Surprise your kids with a sticky balloon war.
