  • 1 packet of unflavored gelatin
  • 1 3.5- ounce box of blue Kool-Aid
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1 cup hot water
  • Chunky sprinkles or Nerd candy. Any candy that would look like aquarium gravel is perfect!
  • Swedish Gummy Fish
  • Small glass aquarium or fishbowl I found mine at the Dollar Store, but you can also find them in any pet store aquarium section.


  • Steps 1-4: Add unflavored gelatin to a medium-size bowl and add 1/2 cup cold water. Allow soaking for 2 minutes. Whisk until the gelatin is dissolved.
  • Steps 5-7: Add blue Kool-Aid to the bowl and add 1 cup of hot water. Whisk until Kool-Aid is completely dissolved.
  • Steps 8-10: Add your candy to the bottom of your aquarium or fish bowl. Add Jello, filling the bowl almost to the top. Some of the candy will float to the top. Wait a few minutes and use a spoon to push them down and they will settle to the bottom.
  • Steps 11-12: Place the bowl in the fridge until the Jello is completely set. Using a sharp knife, make a very small slit in the Jello and slide a Swedish fish into the slit. Add a few. Make it fun!
