Fun Summer Crafts for Kids: How to Make Sweet Paper Ice Cream Treats

Sometimes it's just too hot to go outside and you need something for your kids to do inside the house. Instead of scooping out bowls of ice cream, why not let them make this fun ice cream summer craft? Kids can get creative and create their own frozen ice cream treat! Not only do these treats not melt, they'll keep kids entertained – at least for a little while.

All you need are simple craft supplies for this summer craft for kids: cardstock or construction paper, craft sticks, scissors, glue and markers. After they've complete their project, they may still want a bowl of ice cream. We got you covered with plenty of ice cream recipes

You'll need:

Here's how to make it:

  1. Trace the shape of an ice cream treat onto the cardstock or construction paper. Cut it out using scissors.
  2. Glue the craft stick to the back of the ice cream shape. Draw the ice cream "drips" for the top or the side (as shown in the pictures). Cut them out and glue onto the ice cream shape. Alternately, your child could draw them on with markers.
  3. To make an accordion-style treat, cut the shape out a little larger and fold the sides in to meet in the middle. Put a dab of glue inside to hold the shape flat.

Aren't they cute? And you could help kids make a bunch of different colors and then use them on smaller kids to teach colors. Write the name of the color on the back on the stick, so they could learn how it's spelled, too. Meredith Schneider Tiffany C Kim Kusiciel
