Attention parents! Your kids made ice cream on their last day of science class! We had a lot of fun! The flavor was vanilla. We are putting this on Churchill Science so the children can make ice cream at home. We recommend the kitchen table. The recipe calls for 1/2 cup of salt, but you can use a little bit less. We also found that using double bags made it less messy, because it leaked a little from a hole in the bottom of the bag. It was yummy!
