Whether a player is a chopsticks master or a total novice who holds a stick in each hand, this game will be a bit messy and a lot of fun. Just make sure that you play it outside — and that no one eats the gelatin!
Setup: Make the gelatin according to the package instructions, adding food coloring if desired. After the mixture has set for about 1 1/2 hours, gently add the pennies, distributing them around the bowl. (If you add the pennies too early, they will sink to the bottom.) Return the bowl to the refrigerator until the gelatin is fully set.
Playing the Game: When they hear "Start!" players use their chopsticks to try to remove as many pennies as possible from the bowl. Whoever can pinch the most pennies wins.
