Ice Cream In A Bag

Day 3 (July 2nd)

- Half and Half – OR you can use 1/2 whole milk and 1/2 cream. We have also made it with whole milk and it will still turn out but the ice cream won’t be as creamy

- Salt – the type of salt doesn’t matter. We used regular table salt. But the chunkier the salt you use, the less chance you’ll get salt mixed into your ice cream by accident.

- Ice

- Vanilla

- Sugar

- static electricity

- hair brush OR saran wrap (recommended if child’s hair is short)
