Bright Lights, Big City: Jello Light Table Sculpture

It had been a while since we'd broken out our light boxes and we've been on the search (like everyone else out here) for activities to keep nice and cool.  So we decided to whip up some Jello and see what would happen!  Mom used one of the leftover pieces of acrylic sheeting from our easels and put it on top of our two light boxes to make a nice big surface for play.  Cam had helped mom make several Jello flavors earlier in the day and mom cut them up using different cookie cutter shapes.  And she gave us some toothpicks and wooden skewers to use, which turned out to be too skinny to give much anchoring to our sculptures.  And that turned out to be OK because we mostly wanted to eat it.  Well, I mostly wanted to eat it.  Cam actually did stack some of the Jello blocks together and made different shapes.  Either way - we stayed cool!
