Here is a fun activity to do with your little Valentines today.
I have been wanting to do this activity for years. I always forget to try it and then yesterday a Facebook friend of mine posted that she was doing it with her children and I followed suit. With all of this snow, we have to keep things exciting around here!
Luckily, my children already know I’m a little crazy so when I told them we were making Ice Cream out of fresh snow they just rolled their eyes at me as usual.
It is very simple to make:
Gather 5-6 cups of snow in a big bowl and keep it outdoors until you are ready. Obviously make sure the snow is very clean. We have so much snow that we just dug off 4-5 inches and used clean snow from the middle.
In a separate bowl, mix 1-2 tablespoons of pure vanilla, 1/2 cup of sugar and 1-2 cups of milk. Stir the mixture together and then slowly add it to your snow bowl and mix it up until it gets the consistency of ice cream. Go slow with the milk so you can add more if you need it.
Boom, that’s it! You have Vanilla Snow Ice Cream!
We added fresh fruit, white chocolate chips and sprinkles too.
