Wahoo, today we have another installment of Crafting Challenge with a fabulous group of bloggers. This month’s theme, MASON JARS!!! Who doesn’t love a good mason jar, and have a whole load of them sitting around the house?!
We decided to make homemade ice cream in our mason jars…and the kids had so much fun. Although they didn’t shake them all themselves…it was more fun for a minute until their little arms got tired, and then Mom and Dad ended up shaking the rest. Oh well, they enjoyed it for a minute!!
Homemade Ice Cream in a Jar
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 2 Tablespoons Sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- Ziplock Bag
- Mason Jar
Combine whipping cream, sugar and vanilla in a ziplock bag. Place inside the mason jar and then fill to the brim with ice. Then sprinkle the top with salt (this helps with lowering the temperature of the ice, to make the ice cream freeze!). Put the lid on the jar, and shake….shake, shake, shake! This will take about 5-10 minutes of shaking to freeze your icecream.
We topped our ice cream with all sorts of stuff. Because everyone likes different toppings, right?
Oh, and did you see the fun way we knew who’s was who’s? We used chalkboard vinyl and cut it to the size of the lid, then wrote each of our name’s on them!! The kid’s loved that they had one with their own name on it!
