Ice Cream in a Bag

This original recipe was taken from Family Fun Magazine!

This is a SUPER easy, quick and fun family activity. Great for preschool age as the reward is quick :)

  • 2 tbl sugar
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup salt (the bigger granules the better. Rock salt or Kosher work best...we used sea salt)
  • Ice Cubes (enough to fill a gallon-size bag about half full)
  • 1 pint-sized ziplock bag
  • 1 gallon-size ziplock bag

  1. Combine the sugar, half and half, and vanilla extract in the pint-size bag and seal it tightly
  2. Place the salt and ice in the gallon-size bag, then place the sealed smaller bag inside as well
  3. Seal the larger bag and shake it until the mixture hardens (about 5 minutes). You can feel the smaller bag to tell when it's done
  4. Take the smaller bag out of the larger one and eat away! You can eat straight from the bag for easy clean up!
