These gelatin critters are easy to make.  These critters will be a good kids craft project for during various holidays because you can use cookie cutters that are available during these times.


2 env. unflavored gelatin

1 pkg. (4 – 1/2 c. servings) sugar  free strawberry-banana flavor gelatin

1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

 1 1/2 c. boiling water


In a bowl, add the two gelatins and stir them together with a fork.  Next, to the water, stir in the cinnamon until it is completely dissolved.  Next, add the cinnamon water mixture to the gelatins and mix until completely dissolved.

In a square pan, pour the above mixture. Your pan should be about 9 inches square. Put it in the fridge and let it stand until it has chilled until it becomes firm.  This will take a minimum of two hours.  Using cutters that your children have decided to use for this craft project, cut out the desired shapes.  These gelatin critters will not melt at room temperature so you don’t have to worry about a mess.
