Getting creative with snack time is an activity the whole family can enjoy. And when it comes to making delicious, fun and contemporary treats, the Jellymongers have turned fun into an art form.

The Jellymongers, Sam Bompas and Harry Parr, are big fans of JELL-O gelatin and are masters when it comes to using it to create spectacular works of art.

They have achieved worldwide recognition for their eye-catching sculptures and monuments from their native England. According to Bompas and Parr, making JELL-O creations is a perfect way to have fun in the kitchen.

They have put together a few quick tips for some sensational snacks that can be tried at home:

n Everyday home items can be used to create fun shapes - the only limit is your creativity! Try setting JELL-O in ice cube trays, cupcake pans or reusable plastic containers.

n When making the gelatin, stir in fruit or substitute juice for some of the water for an extra fruity creation.

n Looking to give your gelatin a firmer set? Try adding KNOX gelatin to help your shapes and molds keep their form. Perfect for bite-sized snacks!

n To easily release a masterpiece from its mold, dip mold in a bowl of hot water for a few seconds. Wet a sturdy plate, place on top of the mold and invert. The JELL-O will slip out onto the plate for display.

"JELL-O gelatin has a great collection of snack ideas that are fun to make, and even more fun to eat," says Bompas. "These everyday snacks are easy to do at home and take 20 minutes or less to prepare."

The classic JELL-O JIGGLERS recipe serves as a wonderful "snacktivity" for small hands.
