Learn how to make ice cream in a bag.

What You Need:
What You Do:

  1. In the pint size ziploc® bag put about a cup of milk, a teaspoon of vanilla, and a teaspoon or two of sugar.
  2. Then seal the bag closed (make sure to get the air out).
  3. In the gallon size bag put several ice cubes and about 2 or 3 tablespoons of salt.
  4. Put the smaller bag inside of the big bag, on top of the ice.
  5. Then seal the bag closed (make sure to get the air out).
  6. Have the children rub the big bag for 5-10 minutes - shaking it periodically.
  7. They may need help because it gets really cold for their hands.
  8. Periodically open the bags to see if you can see that the consistency of the milk mixture has become slushy.
  9. Let the kids eat the ice cream with a spoon out of the small bag.
  10. Be careful not to let the contents of the big bag get into the small bag.
  11. You can also add chocolate syrup for more flavor.
