Living on land is everything Princess Ariel dreamed of, but sometimes she can’t help but miss the seas she grew up in. Feeling homesick is perfectly normal for any princess, and every now and then Ariel swims home for a visit. After one such trip, she returned to the castle feeling bluer than ever to have said goodbye to her family. Prince Eric enlisted the help of Sebastian and the two planned a special surprise for her dessert that night – Under the Sea Jello! With its crystal blue waters, friendly fish and even a boat that looks like Prince Eric’s, Ariel couldn’t help but squeal when she saw the surprise at dinner!
Now, whenever she feels a little homesick, Ariel hurries down to the kitchen and prepares a cup of her favorite sea-worthy dessert. Follow along with Ariel’s tutorial and make a scrumptious batch of your own Under the Sea Jello!
Step One: Gather your ingredients.
You will need:
1 box berry blue jello mix
2 cups of water (1 cup boiled, 1 cup cold)
1 bag swedish fish
1 clementine orange, peeled and separated
Glasses or cups of your choosing
Colored construction paper
Step Two: Prepare jello according to instructions on box using the necessary materials listed above.
Step Three: Once your jello has been mixed and stirred, pour it into the glasses you would like it to be served in. Transfer to the fridge to let sit for half the time listed on the box.
Step Four: While the jello sets, work on making your boat! Cut a triangle out using scissors and paper, then spear onto the toothpick to create a flag. Pierce the other end of the toothpick into one orange slice. Make as many boats as you would like to fill your glasses of jello.
Step Five: When your jello has sat for half the amount of time listed on the box, remove it from the fridge. Take as many swedish fish as you would like and push them into the jello. Then place the jello back in the fridge to set for the remaining time.
Step Six: When your jello is through setting, remove it from the fridge and top each glass with your orange slice boat.
Your Under the Sea Jello is completed and ready to enjoy for dessert, or even an after school snack! Invite some of your princess friends to come and share a glass with you – delightful sweets are even better when enjoyed with the ones you love.
If you are really feeling homesick for the sea, top off your evening with a hot bubble bath after dessert! Ariel loves any excuse to be under the water again, and baths are just perfect for flipping your fins like a mermaid!
