Ice Cream…in a Bag!

This activity is appropriate for:
preschool - 3rd grade / 3 - 8 years

Students of all ages love this cool activity—making their own ice cream! You will need the following ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ cup milk or half & half
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons rock salt (the bigger the granules, the better)
  • Ice cubes
  • Pint-size zip-close food storage bag
  • Gallon-size zip-close bag
Combine the sugar, milk and vanilla extract in the pint-size bag. Squeeze out as much air as possible, and then seal it tightly. Next, place the ice and rock salt in the gallon-size bag, and then place the smaller, sealed bag inside as well. Seal the larger bag, again squeezing out as much air as you can. Wrap the bags inside a towel to protect your hands from the cold. Shake the bags until the mixture hardens (about 5 minutes). Feel the small bag to check whether it’s done. When it’s done, remove the smaller bag, and then add in extra treats like crushed cookies, chopped fruit, etc. (Makes about 1 cup.)
