There is nothing sweeter than seeing a child get pleasure from giving a gift to someone that they made with their own hands. Here is a great little gift, complete with a cute poem that they can give to Mom.
Approximate Time: time will vary
All supplies for this project were purchased from Dollar Tree. The spongies were a 5 pack so you can have enough to make at least 5 ice cream cone gifts for $3.00. Once done, you can slide the finished gift in a cello bag, gather and tie with a pretty ribbon. Roll a copy of the poem and slide it under the ribbon. Be sure the child signs their name so the person receiving it will know what little elf it came from! The triangle you see on the side of the container is just a corner from a napkin added for looks.
Note: You can insert a different name such as Grandma in the poem.
Ice cream and water do not mix
The cone just floats to the top
The ice cream makes things murky
And leaves no bubbles to pop
But this is a very special cone
I made it just for you
Not from a store or sweet shop
Neither of those would do
I made this one with my little hands
Here's how to enjoy this treat
Layer by layer, take it apart
This really will be neat
Fill the tub with warm water
And toss the rose bud in
Hold the ice cream in your hand
Then pour the cone stuff in
Get in, sit back and rest a bit
You really deserve this treat
Cause you're the best Mom in the world
Even though you have stinky feet!

If I still have little ones, and I got this, I would never be able to use it. It's just tooooo precious. Thanks, I will keep this one in mind for my aging relatives.
