Flip Fop Ice Cream

Once a month, one of my dear friends (Mandy Bean) organizes a play group called Toddler Toes. This month we were to meet at a local park near the square in Bentonville. Wednesday was the day that we were to meet but it was raining all morning so Mandy decided to relocate to a park a few blocks away that had a larger pavilion that we could "try" to corral all the kids in. Overall I think it went rather well and it was a chance to get the kids out of the house for the morning.

Mandy found a great treat for the kids to keep them busy for at least 15 minutes. She brought all the ingredients to make Flip Flop Ice Cream. She had made the cream mixture ahead of time and then we poured it into sandwich size baggies and then placed those baggies inside gallon size freezer bags with rock salt and ice and then sealed them up. Then we let the kids shake them and roll them around in towels. I think it was a great idea. Caleb didn't care for the ice cream much but Ariel loved it!
