I ran across this idea at Enchanted Learning for a St. Patrick's Day Treat
It is basically 7 layers of jello (Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple) and you pour each layer separate into a clear glasses to make the rainbow.

As none of us are really jello freaks but we do like gummy type stuff, thinking of trying the same concept of making them into jello jigglers,1811,158173-224203,00.html

2 1/2 c. boiling water

4 pkg. (4 serving size) or 2 pkg. (8 serving size) Jello gelatin, any flavor

Kitchen Tools: measuring cup, mixing bowl, mixing spoon, 13 x 9 inch pan, metal spatula, fun shaped cookie cutters

Stir boiling water into gelatin. Dissolve completely. Pour the mixture slowly into 13 x 9 inch pan. Refrigerate at least 3 hours. Jigglers will be firm after 1 hour but may be difficult to remove from pan. Dip bottom of pan in warm water for 15 seconds to loosen gelatin.

Choose a fun shaped cookie cutter. Press the cutter into the Jello and then lift the cutter straight up. Use your fingers to remove jigglers from the pan. Let Mom help with a metal spatula.

Maybe can make this in a flat pan, do the layers separately then use a glass to cut into circles?

I had to look up the order of colors in the light spectrum - I remembered there was an acronym for it, but not what it was, so I had to look it up and it is:


I made a version of this - instead of layers in a cup, I made jelly jigglers and cut them out with a cup, then cut them in half then set them upright.
I posted a how-to over at CO+K
