“Ice cream is happiness condensed.” ~Jessi Lane Adams
We found the ice cream and we ate it. Now it’s time to play in it.
I have been saving ice cream tubs for a loooong time. I even brought the little ones home from Japan…my mum thought I was nuts! But the smalls needed ice cream tubs!! And so she washed HERS out for me too, and I packed them home in my suitcase.
So when we got home from the ice cream adventure, we put together our very own ice cream play bin with things we had in the craft cupboard…
I presented it to the smalls with the tubs filled with pom poms that matched the flavour of the ice cream. This sparked their imaginations to start creating their own flavours of ice cream in the empty tubs. My favourite combination was put together by one of the boys…strawberry lemonade!! I think we will need to make some popsicles in that flavour in the near future!
The coloured rice is from our pony bin…you might recognize it!! We believe in recycling around here!
And there you have it! Simple and full of possibilities.
Scooping and pouring, creating new flavours, and making sundaes.
And the added bonus? They are learning valuable skills all the while…
Oops. This is what happens when you lean on the bin. Good thing she’s so darn cute! Hehehehe!
The smalls are still enjoying this bin every day, AND asking to go find the ice cream truck again…everyday! I think I’ve created some little ice cream monsters!! Maybe we need to do a veggie post soon?!
Thanks for stopping by!
