it's ok, i am a genius.

total 'ah-ha!' moment the other day while i was cussing at all the tiny glad tupperware and lids falling out of the cupboard. i avoid these packaged sets for exactly this reason, but alas we have some and i used to find them useless.
so since i am the worst mom in the world; i don't let my kids buy those jello or pudding cups almost ever. i think they are a waste of money considering you can pay pennies for the same thing out of a bowl we already own - enter my idea. using the little tupperware cups for personal sized jellos on the go!
i just made the jello per the instructions then filled the cups about 2/3 full (i added some canned mandarin oranges) and put into the fridge for the normal jello set time and voila! rowan can come and grab them when she is itching for a snack, it provides her with a tiny bit of independence and she thinks it is pretty neat to eat her jello out of a little cup.

I use those cups to put plain NF yogurt and frozen berries on top. It is quick and much healthier then store bought varieties.

Ooh that is kind of like at our kelsey creek playdate, amanda brought those adorable little pudding "dirt" cups in those same sized tupperware.  Hmm, I know what I am doing this weekend!

Great idea!  I really don't like the pre-made jello.  It's too rubbery.
