My 13 Very Favorite Ice Cream Crafts for Kids

S3 Ice Cream Cones representing my 13 favorite ice cream craftsummer is on everyone’s mind! How are we going to keep the kids busy in a fun, entertaining way without breaking the bank?  While you can certainly argue that being bored is not the end of the world, I like to have some simple yet fun, exciting yet educational summer crafts for kids on hand during the summer months. Ice Cream Crafts are always a hit with kids from pre-school through elementary school age and let’s not forget the teens.  Especially if you end your ice cream craft activity with a tasty make your own sundae or ice cream cone treat.  You can even make your own ice cream or take a trip to the local ice cream store or factory.  Just don’t argue over which flavor is the best!
