Ziploc Ice Cream

This would be a great craft at a child's birthday party. How fun would it be for kids to make their own their very own ice cream to go on their slice of cake. Since we are all kids at heart and love ice cream, grown ups can do it too. I would think this would be easy to do while on a camping trip or a sleep over as well.


  • 1 small ziploc bag
  • 1 large ziploc bag
  • 1/2 cup of whole milk
  • 1 Tbsp. of sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. of vanilla
  • 2 cups of ice cubes
  • 6 Tbsp. of rock salt or a little more then 6 of table salt if no rock salt is available


Combine the milk, sugar, and vanilla in the small bag and seal tightly. Combine ice and the salt in the large ziploc bag. Put the small sealed bag in the larger bag with the ice and the salt and then seal the large ziploc tightly.

Shake until you see ice cream in the smaller bag, 5 minutes should do the trick. Eat with a plastic spoon right from the bag or scoop out and serve.
