Ice Cream For Sale: Making a Play Ice Cream Shop

What could be more fun than selling ice cream?  

This has been my summer “craft” project to add to the dramatic play area and I’m so excited to see how the children will enjoy their new ice cream shop.  I give all the credit for this idea to a former colleague of mine.  Thank you for the inspiration!  IMG_1884

I just used a pom pom maker that I bought at Michaels craft store like this one.  Click here and you will see there are two sizes.  I found that the small one was adequate although I did make my “ice cream scoops” with both the large and small pom pom makers.
