One of our letters for the week last week was “I” so of course we had to do lots of ice cream activities. Our favorite one was making ice cream in a bag. It was so much fun and the ice cream was fantastic!
The reason for the salt is to basically make the ice even colder so as this project progresses, and the ice melts, it gets colder. Little kids do not like cold bags! Just have a few towels handy to wrap it in so their hands stay warm. Also, make sure your bags don’t have holes. Water that drips out will leave a nice salty crust all over your floor. Better yet, go outside and do this.
A tutu is not required.
- Ice cubes
- 6 Tablespoons rock salt
- ½ cup milk, half and half or whipping cream
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla
- 1 quart sized food storage bag
- 1 gallon sized food storage bag
- Fill the gallon sized bag half-full with ice. Add the rock salt. Seal.
- Put milk, vanilla and sugar in small bag and seal.
- Put the small bag inside the large bag and re-seal the large bag.
- Shake and toss and turn the bags for 5 minutes.
- Remove small bag and wipe the outside off to remove salt residue.
- Eat right out of the bag!
