I bought Elliott an ice-cream ball for his birthday last year, which has been unopened in the cabinet until yesterday. Shannon at Teaching Tiny Tots post about making ice cream in a bag reminded me of it, and we thought it would be a fun July 4th activity.
Helping daddy pour the ice and rock salt into the ball.
Pouring the mixture of cream, sugar, and vanilla into the ice cream chamber
Rolling the ball around. O had lots of fun for the 1st 5 minutes, then she was ready to EAT! Unfortunately, we had to shake it for 10 minutes, check it, and shake it for 10 more minutes.
Can you tell that she LOVED the ice cream? It was delicious!!! We added fresh peaches, and it was the best ice cream we've ever had!
