 I like jello if it comes in a shooter cup ;)

My kiddos love jello.  In the summer we make triple layer jello in glass cups, the girls always have fun eating those outside on a nice hot day!

I used to make 'rainbow' jello for my 2 boys when they were young. using  big clear plastic bowl and (7) 3 oz boxes of jello, I would make 1 box at  time, pour it into the bowl, put it in the fridge. When each layer had set up, would pour another over it and back in the fridge. Took a while, but they loved it. About time to make it for DGS. He is 3 1/2, and his baby brother is almost here
