This is a frugal summer treat, great for holidays like July 4th or another summer outting. Your children will love creating and eating their ice cream!
Make Your Own Ice Cream
What you need: 2 cups heavy whipping cream, 2 cups half and half, ½ cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of vanilla, 1 bag of ice, coarse salt, pint sized Ziploc bags and gallon sized Ziploc bags.
What you do: Combine the first 4 ingredients in a bowl. Add ½ a cup of mixture to a pint sized bag. Take a gallon sized bag and fill with ice and ½ cup of salt. Place the pint sized bag inside the gallon bag. Wrap the bag in a towel, and hand over to the little ones. Have the kids shake the bag continuously for at least 5 minutes. The result will be their own handmade, rich and creamy vanilla ice cream!
