Jello Ocean Sensory Tray

**This jello ocean sensory tray is completely edible. If your kids put something in their mouths, it is totally safe to eat.

Directions for Jello Ocean Sensory Tray

Items needed:

  • 2 boxes of blue jello
  • 2 aluminum cooking trays
  • brown sugar
  • whipped cream (with a squeeze lid)
  • whale or goldfish crackers
  • octopus candies
  • red fish candies


Make the jello according to the package and let it set overnight in the aluminum cooking trays.

The next day, take the jello out and start to assemble all the ingredients on top. Use the brown sugar to one side for the sand. Then squeeze some whipped cream in rows to make the “white capped” waves. Then sprinkle the candies and goldfish crackers around in the jello “ocean.”
