Select a box of the Jell-O flavor of your choice. Choose appropriate colors for parties such as lime green Jell-O for Halloween. Cherry Red is great for summer parties on the Fourth of July.

Prepare the Jell-O according to the box directions. Do not refrigerate. Once the Jell-O has been mixed and all water added, move to the next step.

Fill a small balloon with air. Thin wall, small balloons work well but experiment with different types of balloons.

Place the balloon's opening around a small funnel. Use your fingers to hold the balloon to the funnel.

Pour the Jell-O into mixture into the balloon using the funnel. Do this until the balloon has a good shape. Do not overfill the balloon.

Tie the end of the balloon once it is filled. Use either string, balloon clamps, or twist the balloon's opening into a knot to tie it.

Place the Jell-O balloon in the refrigerator to set for a few hours.

Repeat Steps 3 to 6 for each balloon.

To create many balloons, purchase many large boxes of Jell-O.
