This is a great thing for children to do. Younger ones might get bored shaking, but I think it would be good for a 7 to maybe 10 years old.
Combine the sugar, half-and-half and vanilla in pint-size zip lock bag and seal. Fill the gallon-size zip lock bag one-half full with crushed ice. Add the rock salt. Place the sealed, pint-size zip lock bag into the gallon size zip lock bag and seal.
Now here comes the hardest part:
Shake the gallon-size bag for 5-7 minutes or until the ice cream hardens. Open the small zip lock bag and enjoy.
Now this doesn't make a very large amount. Just enough to satisfy the maker of the concoction for all the hard work it took to shake. But the ice cream is good and smooth.

WHAT A GREAT IDEA!! I'M ALWAYS LOOKING FOR THINGS TO DO WITH THE GRANDKIDS. THANKS SO MUCH AND IF YOU HAVE MORE IDEAS PLEASE SEND THEM ON.
I've done this- and yes, it works wonderfully. WE used snow instead of crushed ice, because snow is something we get lots of in my part of Canada. I work at an elementary school and used this recipe with two special needs boys who love to cook. IT was a huge success
