Back in April I posted a recipe to make your own window gel clings. The ones we made in April caught the warm rays from the sun all spring and summer until my five-year-old decided it was time to start decorating for Halloween. We replaced our spring window jellies with a spooky Halloween version this week.
Please note: This is the first time I have EVER decorated my house for Halloween. You are witnessing something special here, folks 🙂 I’m usually much lazier than this. Last year my son wanted to decorate our house so bad, so I sent him to the neighbor’s house to help them decorate their house for Halloween instead. I didn’t get off so easy this year 🙂
We used orange, black, red, and green food coloring this time. We used the gel food coloring instead of the regular food coloring we used last time, and I can honestly say I didn’t notice a difference. Both work just fine. I left out the glitter this time around. It will probably come back out for our winter/Christmas themed jellies 🙂
We had four cookie cutters – a ghost, a pumpkin, a cat, and a bat. The window jellies turned out wonderful and the kids loved playing in the leftovers. The gelatin is cold and squishy – a great sensory experience for the kiddos!
Also, don’t look too close at my dirty windows! They are clean on the inside, I swear. And if I clean the outside, they just get dirty again and that’s not good enough for me!
Be sure to check out my previous post for the entire easy how-to and enjoy!
