i scream, you scream

we all scream for

remember how i said i was trying to do a summer food theme

yeah that went 2 ways
 1 watermelon project
which turned out great!
check it out HERE

then we made this little thing last week friday
i just never got around to blogging about it
its just their hand prints that they decorated with pom poms and jewels
glued onto a "cone"

yesterday we did this
the younger kids practiced writing the letters of their name on the scoops of ice cream
while the older kids brainstormed words that described ice cream
here are a few of our huge ice cream cones!

finally today
we made our own ice cream!
i highly recommend doing this with your kiddos this summer if they enjoy ice cream!
our first bowl!

what you need:
1/2 cup whole milk
1tbsp sugar
1tsp vanilla
 6 tbsp of salt
2 cups of ice
1 large ziplock bag
1 small ziplock bag
(this makes 1 serving)

since i had 9 kids that were going to need ice cream i had the older girls help me prep the bags
sugar and vanilla went in the small bag first!

then we added the milk!

ice and salt in the big bag!

singing and shaking our bags!!
the kids did complain after a few minutes that their hands were tired and cold!
it took about 7 mins for the first bag to be done!
the younger kiddos about 10mins
i think the harder and faster you shake the bag the quicker the process!

our first bowl of ice cream! 
the young man that ate it got a brain freeze he ate it so fast!!

we had a couple kids complain of salt being in their ice cream so the next time we do this i 
will have to come up with a way so that salt does not get in the ice cream!
 i was able to get a bite in and it was yummy!!!

make sure to add this to your list of things to do with your kids this summer!
i know we will be doing it again!

Happy Friday!
