Whether it’s a spooky Halloween party or just for fun, these kid-friendly jello syringes are the creepiest way to spice up an October gathering. And you won’t believe how easy they are. So let’s get started!
So, I decided to throw a small Halloween dinner party for some friends. Adding these fun jello-filled syringes to each table setting was the perfect touch. Everyone in the group loved it. And guess what, it only took two steps! I know, right?! Here’s how to do it.
Gather your supplies
It doesn’t take much to make this spooky Halloween treat. You only need three things:
I bought my plastic syringes at the Dollar Store, but you can also get them on Amazon. You can also buy green or purple jello, but I like how the red jello makes it look like creepy blood.
Make your jello
If you’ve ever made jello jigglers before, then you’ll know how to make these. It’s the same recipe. Boil 2 1/2 cups of water in a pot. Do not add any cold water. Remove from the stove and immediately mix in the two boxes of gelatin powder. Stir until dissolved.
Then, simply suck up the jello mixture into each of the individual plastic syringes. You can fill them all the way full or just halfway, whatever you prefer. Put them in the fridge for a couple of hours and you’re done!
Other tips and tricks
These kid-friendly jello syringes can be placed next to your Halloween dinner table settings or displayed on a spooky tray on your buffet table. After I filled all the syringes, I had quite a bit of jello mixture left over. So, you can use to rest to fill a brain jello mold or other Halloween mold.
Even though these syringes are perfect by themselves, they can also be paired with some awesome blood bag drink pouches. My friend brought some to our Halloween dinner party and they were a hit. She filled them with cranberry juice and it was so fun.
I hope you have as much fun as I did making these kid-friendly jello syringes. Let me know how it goes in the comments below. Here’s a short little video showing how I made these syringes. Have a spooky Halloween!
