Summer Fun: A Final Hurrah

I can't believe that this is the last Friday of summer for us!  That was fast.

Here's a fun, quick project for you and your kids; I'll call it Ziploc Ice Cream.

1.  Fill a gallon ziploc bag with ice about halfway, add 6 tablespoons of rock salt, or regular salt (we used regular).

2.  Mix 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/2 cup milk, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla in a pint size ziploc and seal it.

3.  Put the small bag inside the large bag and seal the large bag.

4.  Shake.

5.  Keep shaking.

6.  After about 5 minutes of shaking, the mixture will turn to ice cream!

7.  Dig in and enjoy!

It's like magic to watch milk, sugar, and vanilla change to ice cream, isn't it? I'm sure your kids will want to do this again soon!

My son will love this idea. He can't seem to get enough ice cream this summer. :0)

Can I just tell you how much my girls would enjoy that?? Too much fun! Can't believe summer is coming to an end. My girls don't start until September!
