My girls love playing with shaving cream. I buy probably 10 cans of the cheapest shaving cream I can find at the store so I always have some in the cabinet. They love practicing letters, spelling, or just pretending with it. Then when you are done all you have to do is hose them off!
Last winter we made puffy paint snowmen (which I will share later), so we decided to make ice cream cones with the same "recipe."
brown construction paper
black sharpie marker
brown acrylic paint (optional, or another color of your choice)
Black beads (optional)
red paint (optional)
Begin by cutting a triangle out of brown construction paper and draw black lines on it. This will be your cone. Then glue it on the cardstock. For the younger kids, I drew the outline of the ice cream to help give them direction on where to paint.
Now, begin painting...
Finally, add your toppings. We used black beads for chocolate chips on some of the cones, and drops of brown paint on others. We added a cherry to the top with red paint, but again, that is optional.
Have fun creating the flavor ice cream of your dreams! While this ice cream does look good enough to eat, I don't recommend it;)
Now, jump over to Mom for Less and find a homeschool lesson to go with these puffy paint ice cream cones!
