This is great for promoting learning, development and sensory play is certainly fun. Alex was using her motor skills trying to pick up the jelly and discovering what happened when she squished, poked and even ate it.
Jelly play started off very civilized and clean but by the end it was a different matter. Alex was squelching it, wiping it around and even clapping with the jelly in her hands :)
We had a great time and as it was jelly it was fine if she wanted to have a little taste.
