Need: 6-packages of jello-red, green, yellow,
orange, grape, lemon, ect., 1-16oz. container of sour cream, 13 x 9 pan
Mix package Jell-O with 1 cup boiling water. In another bowl mix 1/3 cup
sour cream with 1/2 cup of your Jell-O that's mixed. Use fork or wire
whisk to mix sour cream with Jell-O. Start with 1 layer sour cream mixture
refrigerate for 1/2 hour- then carefully layer clear Jell-O repeat until
there are 12 layers. ( I use my scraper to pour the Jell-O over the layer
of sour cream mixture just so it doesn't go on to fast.) I have found that
if I leave this out on the counter for about ten minutes, then refrigerate
it sets better.

Provide each child with a piece of waxed
paper and a spoon. To make a treat,
a child scoops a large spoonful of nondairy whipped topping onto their
paper. Then the child uses their spoon to create a cloud shape. Freeze
child's cloud; then serve.

Rainbow Toast added
2-9-03 Original Author
For each color, take 1 tablespoon milk (rice or cow's) and 1/4 to 1/2
teaspoon sugar and mix it. This makes quite a few pieces of toast.
If you want to make lots of colors to practice making colors or if if you
have more children or students, you will need to make more. Place some of
the milk mixture in small jars, glasses, small margarine containers, or
other containers. Repeat this 3 times. Add red, yellow, and blue food
coloring in containers. It takes 1 drop to make each color.
Take a piece of white bread. Paint the bread with some of the milk using a
pastry brush or small paint brush. Make sure not to paint it with too much
milk or it will become soggy (if the child does do that, that is okay,
since children love to explore).
Mix some of the red with some of the yellow and see what color it makes
Mix some of the yellow with the blue and see what color it makes (green).
Mix some of the blue with some of the red and see what color it makes
(violet/purple). Put the bread in the oven or a toaster oven. Take it out
when it is lightly brown.
