This is such a great idea! I was excited to make it for/with the kids, but thought it would very involved. It actually came together very quickly and the cups looked so great! For the water cups I poured the hot jello straight into the clear cups. For some I waited until they were halfway set and pressed pretzel goldfish into the jello. For others I waited until completely set and just put them on top. Both looked great. My only difficulty was the yellow cool whip flame tips. After adding the food coloring, the cool whip thinned out too much to peak, so I would suggest only adding a drop or too. My kids loved these! If you have Avatar the Last Airbender fans, they will love these! :) Thank you!!
