Yummy Snack Ideas The Whole Family Will Love

On hot summer days, there’s nothing better than a cold snack. Here are some fun, creative snacks your child will love preparing and devouring!

Ice Cream in a Bag

This sweet treat takes a bit more work, but it’s worth the reward! Place ½ cup heavy cream, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and a couple drops of vanilla into a sealable plastic sandwich bag. In a separate gallon-sized bag, place cubed ice and ½ cup rock salt. Place the small bag inside the larger one. Add a bit more ice, and seal the large baggie with both the small baggie and ice inside. Use your hands to move the baggie around continuously. Check the ingredients occasionally to see if the mixture resembles ice cream. In about 25 minutes enjoy your own vanilla ice cream!
