Ice Cream Play date

Last time my sister and I were able to get together, we both came up with a fun play date for the kiddies.  Remember her post on her Monster Play Date

My play date centered around ice cream.  We started out by reading a great Curious George book about ice cream, or course! =)


The kiddies had fun reading the book!  {Did you notice the matching outfits? =)  They were all decked out for the 4th of July!}


After reading our book, it was time for our craft. Each kiddo made a quadruple stacked ice cream cone using glue and some tissue paper.


They had lots of fun painting their tissue paper scraps with the glue mixture.  Kids always love anything messy, right?


With our ice cream craft drying, we headed outside four our ice cream relay race. 


Using their cone (brown cup), each kiddo had to race their ice cream (water balloon) to the other side of the patio. 


The one who got all of their ice cream to the other side of the patio first was the winner.

**This idea looked better in my head…when did they start making water balloon that aren’t round when they’re filled up?!  We rolled with it anyway and the kids had fun.** 




After the race, those participating got an ice cream medal.  {We lost one relay runner due to a temper tantrum!}


After the race, we headed to the kitchen for a well earned snack.  We had ice cram floats with a POP.  After each scoop of ice cream we added some rainbow Pop Rocks follow by some Sprite.




Watching their faces as they drank their float with hilarious!  We will definitely be making these fun floats again!

We had so much fun and our play date activities kept them all very busy as we waited oh so patiently for the fireworks that night.
