We had a jam-packed week last week, so I never got my Toddler School photos up. In fact, I’m still loading and editing them. One of the things that my kids got to do was make ice-cream in a bag. Just so you don’t go thinking I’m some creative, super-cool mom who lets her kids do messy things—I didn’t plan this. Yep, I got to watch my kids have fun and not have to clean up the mess 🙂 We have a wonderful lady in our lives named Mamaw. She’s not our Mamaw, but has adopted all the kids in our small group as her own. She and her daughter have done all our science experiments this year. Whohoo! What that means is that my kids actually got to do science experiments this year–lol.
I couldn’t believe how easy this was and thought that we actually might do it again at home this summer. Here’s the recipe:
2 Tablespoons of powdered sugar
1/2 cup of whipping cream
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla
6 Tablespoons of rock salt
1 pint-size Ziplock bag
1 gallon-size Ziplock bag
Pour the first three ingredients into the pint-size bag. Seal it tightly.
Fill half of the gallon-size bag with ice and then add the rock salt.
Place the smaller bag inside the bag with the ice. Seal it tightly.
Shake, shake, shake and shake some more!
When it looks like ice-cream, take the smaller bag out from the bag of ice. Wipe the outside with a wet rag, open the bag and eat with a spoon! It was very good!
