Hand Print Ice Cream

Today we made Hand print ice creams. I traced there hand print in their favorite flavor (pink-strawberry). Glued the hand on brown paper and cut it into a cone shape. Then the boys added sprinkles and a cherry on top. This was a cute project.

2. Cut out green stems and leaves, and colored flowers (you'll have to do this ahead of time for the younger children).
