Catch the Icecream Game

Sharing is caring!

The theme for this weeks craft class was “Ice Cream”. Given that this is also the theme for the Artsy-Craftsy Challenge, I just couldn’t resist. Our first craft of the day was  

“Catch the Icecream” Game

Ice cream craft game

Objective :

Shoot the icecream balls with the launcher and try to catch them as they fall back into their cones. Test your reflexes.

Encourages:

.Movement precision, .Control of own body, .Spatial coordination, .Sporty spirit, .Respecting the rules of the game

Items required –

  • A paper cup
  • Black yarn about a feet long
  • a plastic ball that fits just right over a cup.
  • Puffy paint – brown
  • Sprinkles
  • Red small pom pom
  • Ear buds to apply the puff paint
  • A sharp pointy object to make a hole both in plastic & bottom of the cup.

I had leftover paper juice glasses the kids had used earlier, which I washed and kept aside for one such craft activity. Puffy paint , wool, sequins & pom poms were bought from the itsy-bitsy store. The plastic balls were bought from a local toy store. Made a hole at the bottom of the plastic ball and tied (stringed in) a woollen string. Tied the other end to the bottom of the paper glass (from the inside). Make sure the yarn is at least a foot long between the two ends.

We decorated our ice cream using chocolate coloured puffy paint, a red pompom cherry & colourful beads. While that dried, we coloured the paper cone brown and our Ice cream game was ready to be played with.

The kids had a gala time throwing up their ice creams scoop (balls) and trying to catch them in their cones.

Our next craft was rather simple. I made ice cream shaped cutouts on paper and asked the kids to color it in their favorite flavor. It was amazing to see each one’s creation. Lil P made the strawberry cone with cherries and her friend made a rainbow ice cream and cone. Love their imagination. Couldn’t take a pic of all the crafts (and kids) as it got a little late today.
