Today is brought to you by Ice Cream

I asked A what she wanted to do the next day. She answered with “eat ice cream all day long.” Now as fun as that sounds I told her that was not quite possible. So instead I found many activities that centered around ice cream. And what a fun day it was going to be!

I had several activities set up and a few more we created along the way. We started by reading Should I Share My Ice Cream (thanks for the book mom!). Then we did our activities all throughout the day. We had 1) Pompom Sprinkles (inspiration from here),2) Alphabet Scoops, & 3) Making our own ice cream. Then we added 4) Dice lead ice cream coloring.

Snow Ice Cream

Snowzilla 2016 has resulted in 30″of snow.  So,  one of our many snow related activities was to make (and eat) snow ice cream. 

We got our snow from the middle of the freshly fallen snow to make sure it was clean.  Then added some sweetened condensed milk and a splash of vanilla.  Delicious!

SKILLS: Gross motor with stirring. Fine motor with measuring. Patience and taking turns.

Here is the recipe we used. (I would use a little more snow next time as it was very sweet).
