You will need: 

  • 1 (6 ounce) package raspberry gelatin powder or 1 (6 ounce) package grape flavor gelatin
  • 3 (1/4 ounce) envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 3 cups boiling water
  • 100 flexible plastic straws
  • 1 tall slender 4 cup container (same height as extended straws)
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 12 -15 drops green food coloring

You will grab a parent and:

  1. In a bowl, combine gelatins.
  2. Add boiling water; stir until gelatins completely dissolve. Chill until lukewarm, about 20 minutes.
  3. While the gelatins cool, gently pull straws to extend to full length; place in tall container.
  4. Blend cream and food coloring with the lukewarm gelatin mixture. Pour into container, filling straws.
  5. Chill until gelatin is firm, at least 8 hours, or cover and chill up to 2 days.
  6. Pull straws from container (if using a carton, tear carton away from straws). Pull straws apart; run hot tap water for about 2 seconds over 3 to 4 straws at a time. Starting at the empty ends, push worms from straws with rolling pin, or use your fingers; lay worms on waxed paper-lined baking sheets.
  7. Cover and chill until ready to use, at least 1 hour or up to 2 days.
  8. Worms will hold at room temperature up to 2 hours.

Here are a few ideas for GO GREEN:

Go Green     Jazzy Green
The basic idea is to use green makeup and as much GREEN of anything else you can find!

Here are a few word clues for other costumes:

Saturn (use glitter covered tights and shirt for stars and hula hoops for Saturn’s rings!)
Cat out of the Bag (dress like cat and carry a bag)
Self Portrait (carry large frame with no glass or back and hold it up to yourself)
Ceiling Fan (carry pom poms and cheer for the ceiling)
Iron Chef (wear chef hat and carry an iron)
Pumpkin Pie (wear pumpkin colored top and add tape in the form of π )

SO FUN! 

Tell us your ideas in the comments below! It would be awesome if you could send in a photo, too!
