Keep the kiddos busy in the heat with homemade ice cream. Then enjoy some ice cream themed printables from the Miz Daisy Entertainment FUN STUFF Library.


I scream you scream we all scream for ice cream. Who doesn't love ice cream especially on a hot summer day?  Use the simple recipe provided below and you'll have delicious homemade ice cream in less than 15 minutes. You can get even more creative by changing up your flavors and toppings.

This is also a great way to practice math skills when using measuring cups and measuring spoons. Want more ice cream?  How could you double the recipe?

I would love to hear what kind of ice cream you made @mizdaisyentertainment on FB and IG.

Homemade Ice Cream

If you’d like to make a Father’s Day Award Craft, here is the list of materials you’ll need and step by step instructions to finish the craft.

Ingredients Needed

  • 1 cup of half and half
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 3 cups of ice
  • 1/3 cup of kosher or rock salt
  • sprinkles or toppings of your choice
  • small plastic bag
  • large plastic bag
  • optional: cup or bowl for ice cream


Step 1: Gather Ingredients

Step 2: Add 1 cup half and half, 2 tablespoons of sugar and a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla to the small plastic bag and seal.

Step 3: Add 3 cups of ice to the large bag along with the 1/3 cup of kosher or rock salt.

Step 4: Place the small bag into the large bag and seal.

Step 5: Shake the bag for 5-10 minutes until ice cream is formed. The bag will be cold so you may want to use a towel while shaking the bag.

Step 6: Transfer from the bag to a cup or bowl and add desired toppings.


This would be a great activity for kiddos to do outside. Shake, add toppings, and eat right out of the bag!


Enjoy a nice cold treat.
