Ice Cream In A Bag

Today, Felicia was having an ice cream party at school and Madelyn was a little sad that she was not going to be there. So, we decided to have an ice cream party at home. We made some Ice Cream In A Bag! The recipe is simple and the kids have always had a lot of fun dancing around, shaking their very own bag of ice cream!

Here's what you will need:
  • 1 pint sized zip lock bag
  • 1 gallon sized zip lock bag
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 Tbs. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • ice
  • rock salt
1. Fill the gallon sized bag half full with ice. Add a few tablespoons of rock salt.

2. In the pint sized bag, combine the milk, sugar, and vanilla. Seal the bag.

3. Place the sealed pint sized bag in the gallon sized bag and seal tightly.

4. Now comes that fun part, Shake the bag for about 5 minutes! My kids love to dance while they shake it!

5. Enjoy!


  1. I have wanted to do this with my kids for a while now. I just have to remember to buy some rock salt. It looks like a lot of fun!

  2. Where do you find rock salt- in the baking section? My son would have a blast shaking this! What a fun mommy you are that you made ice cream with her since she missed it in school :)

  3. Oh girl, I can't wait to make this for fave kind of recipe, short and SWEET!!

  4. That looks like so much fun! I am going to have to do that really soon! Thanks for the idea!

  5. We've done that one at a couple 4H events. I think I ended up shaking the bags while the kids wandered off for another project...
