This mud ice cream station is so much fun for kids! It is easy to set up and is the perfect use for those leftover ice cream cones from summer, while serving up a bunch of good old fashioned fun!
I am always looking for great ways to keep my kids playing without turning to their video games.This mud ice cream activity kept them entertained with dramatic play all day. They naturally got filthy dirty which is half the fun! If you do this with your kids, opt for old clothes and shoes and do it outside!
Old dishes like a bowl and spoons to scoop with
Fill up a bowl with mud.
Offer your children spoons and scoops , sprinkles and a few ice cream cones.
You might like to add a few old bowls to the mix for variety.
Allow your child to scoop mud into the cones and dishes and add a generous amount of sprinkles!
Both of my kids were enthralled with this idea. It might have been one of the best activities I have ever set up for them. They laughed, they mixed up mud, served it to each other and got so incredibly dirty. It was wonderful fun!
Both kids agreed that this would be fun to try with snow too! Should we be so lucky this winter to have enough snow to play with!
When playtime is over, simply spray the tools your kids used to play with the hose, and toss the ice cream cones! I love easy clean up activities! If the weather is warm enough, your kids might enjoy a splash in the sprinkler, or the garden hose to clean off a little bit before going inside.
