Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag

For Activity Day, we made homemade ice cream in a bag. It was a hit! The girls loved making it, shaking it and eating it. It was very easy and so fun! Perfect for a summer activity with the kids.

(not my picture)

1 gallon size ziploc bag
1 pint size ziploc bag
rock salt
1/2 cup half and half
1 Tbs. sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla

Fill gallon-size bag half full of ice and 6 Tbs. rock salt. Put half and half, sugar and vanilla in small bag. Seal and place in large bag. Seal large bag. Shake it up for about 10 minutes until mixture becomes ice cream. Enjoy! You may want to double the ice cream. This recipe only makes about a 1/2 cup.

This is so fun for kids. We've done it while camping and it's a hit for sure. You can also add some Nestle Quik to make it chocolate.

When did you paint your walls flourescent green and buy a clear plastic watch? Psyche.

Thanks for the tip! I'm over the 11 year old girls and I'm always looking for new ideas.
