Ice Cream Making

The children in Grasshoppers enjoyed making their own fruit ice cream as well as having their special treat and getting to eat it! The children enjoyed learning lots of new skills such as using child-safe knives to cut or potato mashers to mash their fruit to add to the ice cream. They spoke about different ingredients needed to make the ice cream before taking turns to add ingredients. The children then took turns to use the measurement spoons and jugs to add the ingredients to the bowl before using their whisks to make the mixture lovely and smooth. When the mixture was ready the children were interested in watching the ice cream maker get to work! Whilst waiting for the ice cream to be ready to eat, they made predictions on how they thought the ice cream would taste and how they cold they thought it would be. After a little bit of a wait, the children thoroughly enjoyed eating their yummy fruity ice cream.
