20 Cool and Creative Ice Cream Crafts for Kids
These Cool and Creative Ice Cream Crafts for Kids will have you craving an ice cream cone in no time, no matter what the weather is outside!
There are many joys of childhood, and one of them is most certainly slurping on an ice cream cone, going ever so slowly so the treat will last longer. Unfortunately, that often ends up with the ice cream dripping down your fingers and making a mess!
In case you’re wondering why we’re talking about ice creams when Fall is on its way, it’s because September 22nd is Ice Cream Cone Day. There are some differences of opinion based on where the cone was invented, but initially they were waffles rolled by hand. Later, a machine was invented and ice cream cones were all set to rule the world.
So how are you going to celebrate Ice Cream Cone Day this year? If you can, we’d certainly recommend treating yourself and your family to some yummy cones! If not, you can still celebrate – with some cool and tempting ice cream crafts!
