Rainbow Jell-O (12 layers) added 8-25-00 Original Author Unknown
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.

Rainbow Toast added 2-9-03 Original Author Unknown

Directions: 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 (orange).
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.
