i scream you scream we all scream for ice cream!

With the days still being so hot, it seemed about time to try to make our own ice cream…in a bag!  So after school today we got busy and mixed:

2 tbsp sugar

1 cup half and half cream

and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract

poured it in a pint size ziplock and sealed it tightly.

Next we placed:

1/2 cup of coarse salt (we used table salt)

ice cubes

in a gallon-size bag.  We put our smaller bag inside as well and sealed the larger bag shut.  And shook it.  And juggled it.  And rolled it.  And made a mess as the bag opened up spilling out ice cubes.  We shook some more until our hands started showing signs of frost bite.  A little over 5 minutes later our small bag of ice cream mixture had hardened!

Soooo   deeee wishious!
