One of the Peas announced that she needed ice cream. We don’t have any ice cream. We can make ice cream in the ice cream maker. No…we don’t all enough of the ingredients and it takes hours. The Pea is not happy.
So, to make her happy and to have some fun, we made ice cream in Ziploc bags. 🙂
First you need to gather all the ingredients. Milk, sugar, vanilla, salt, ice, one small baggie, one large baggie and a few kids.
Mix the milk, sugar, and vanilla into the small baggie. Seal tight.
This sugary liquid will magically change into ice cream, which is great for a hot Florida day.
Add lots of ice and the salt to the large baggie. Place the small goody bag inside the large bag and seal tight. Knead the ice around the liquid. The girls got dish towels to wrap around the bag, because it got too cold for them to handle. This takes up to 10 minutes. My girls had ice cream in 7 minutes.
You should have heard the squeals, when they discovered they had ice cream!!
Now the taste test. Is it wonderful? Yes it is!
This is the Pea who wanted the ice cream. She says, “Mom, we have to do this everyday.” Mom says, “No, I don’t think so.”
Now go make some summer time fun for yourselves.
