How to Make Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag

Materials Needed for Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag:
1 gallon sized resealable bag,
1 quart sized resealable bag,
1/2 c Milk
1/ 1/2-2 tbsp. sugar,
1tsp. vanilla extract or cocoa powder,
2 trays of ice cubes,
6 tbsp. of salt or rock salt (the more salt the colder it can get)
winter mittens or oven mitts
Optional: fruits, chocolate chips, syrups or added extracts

This makes a small amount of ice cream but kids love it if you would like to make ice cream in a snap! Kids hands may often get tired shaking the bag so it's best to take turns!
What a great way to have fun with math, measuring and pouring! It's a great science activity because it incorporates all the five senses as well!

Have a great time and enjoy!

Isn't it? I always made it in a coffee can. My husband is making this tonight. I will have to hide the sip locks at some point!
