Ice cream that doesn’t melt

Continuing with National Ice Cream Month, here’s an ice cream activity that won’t melt.


  1. On any size piece of paper, sketch a large ice cream cone.
  2. Help your child cut the triangle and circle shape out of paper and glue onto a new paper.
  3. Allow your child to color whatever parts of the cone they wish. Talk about different flavors of ice cream and toppings that might go on the ice cream.
  4. Buy small foam pieces or even real treats to glue on top of the now colored ice cream cone. Soft gummy bears, licorice rope, or small candies or mints work well as they are lightweight and will remain glued to the picture.
