I made this Kids DIY Ice Cream with my kids when they were little and now I am making it with my grand kids. They get such satisfaction from making it themselves.
This recipe is only one serving, so each child can have their own bag.
Charlotte is so excited she gets to make her OWN ice cream!
I think ice cream is her favorite dessert next to cupcakes!

All you do is place the milk, sugar and vanilla into a small zip top bag, squeeze out all the air, zip it shut and place in another small zip top bag. Add the salt and ice to a large zip top bag, place the small bags with the ice cream ingredients into the large bag and then place all of it into another large zip top bag making sure to squeeze out all the air.
NOTE: The next step might be a little challenging depending on the age of the child. My granddaughter is only 4 so I helped her with some of the shaking.
I would recommend letting the child wear gloves, oven mittens or wrapping the bag in a towel to protect their hands. And then…….shake…..shake……shake for 15 to 20 MINUTES!
