After the kids and I sat down to make their list, I sent some of it off to Baba and Didyc. They were WONDERFUL in making it all happen- buying cool guns, planning a picnic after the zoo, calling the fire station to set up a tour, and having ingredients on hand for the ice cream. We didn't really need to do any of these activities because the children would have had a blast just playing outside (and they did! it's rough now!), but I love it that they listened to what the kids were interested in doing and joined in the fun!
Sampling the ingredients
Mmmm! The finished product!
We have one of those ice cream balls to make our own frozen treat, but I put it in storage.
I think we may need a machine when we get back, though!
How about you? Do you make your own ice cream? What is your favorite flavor?
