    Ice-Cream Cone Decoration

    Make a cool treat that won't melt
    • Easy
    • 30 min
    • 6 - 9

    Supplies Needed

    Tip:

    • Have students write new lyrics to the song "I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!" For example, "I eat, you eat, we all eat a frozen treat!" Post students' lyrics with their ice-cream cone decorations around the classroom.
    • Ask students to invent their own ice cream flavors. Encourage them to be as creative as possible with the flavor combinations. Give each student a recipe card, and have students write down the ingredients for their new creations.
    • Discuss that ice cream is a special treat. Eating ice cream is okay in moderation, but it shouldn't be eaten every day. Have students brainstorm a list of healthy snacks and a list of snacks, like ice cream, that should be eaten only once in a while.

    Instructions

    1. Draw an ice-cream cone on a sheet of white paper with a pencil.
    2. Tape the paper to a flat surface so that it doesn't move when you trace over it.
    3. Lay a piece of wax paper over the drawing. Tape the wax paper to the flat surface so that it doesn't move.
    4. Trace over the drawing using Elmer's 3D Washable Paint Pens™. Color in the spaces with paint. Let the paint dry completely.
    5. Glue a pair of Jiggly Eyes to the ice-cream cone. Let the glue dry completely.
    6. Draw a mouth, nose, and eyebrows on the ice-cream cone with a black marker.
    7. Take the tape off of the wax paper. Hang up your ice cream cone decoration!
