What You Need:
- Sandwich-size zipper bag
- ½ cup whole milk
- 1 T sugar
- ½ tsp vanilla
- Quart or Gallon-sized zipper bag - the quart is smaller, but it worked just fine
- Ice (fill larger bag halfway or more)
- 6 T rock salt or ice cream salt - found in the baking isle at my store
- Oreos and/or chopped fruit
- a small cup
Step 1: Place oreos in bag and let the kids pound on them to break them up....or chop up fruit if you are going healthy! =)
Step 2: Place zipper baggie in a cup with edges wrapped around the mouth of the cup. Combine milk, sugar, and vanilla in the bag. Seal tightly. I recommend taping it shut with packing tape to make sure it does not leak.
This seemed to be the easiest way to let them do it on their own
Step 3: Add rock salt and ice to larger zipper bag. Place the small sealed bag inside the large bag and seal. Make sure you use lots of rock salt even with the smaller bag.
