Ice Cream!

This week our Theme is Ice Cream! We did something I have never done before and made melted ice cream play dough. They loved this stuff so much! All of them played with this for an hour, I am not even exaggerating! We used the sweet cream creamer and it smelled just like vanilla ice cream. When they got just enough corn starch to cream it would be a solid when they were playing with it and then melt into a liquid when they put it down. They loved experimenting with the texture by adding more liquid or more cornstarch. What a great Sensory/Science/Math activity! It was very messy though I will be cleaning up cornstarch for a week! Totally worth it, to see them so engaged! We also colored our favorite ice cream flavor for a class cone.
