We all scream for ICE CREAM! With summer in full swing, I find myself craving my favorite sweet treat more and more often. I love to make ice cream from scratch and try as many flavors as I can, so it only makes sense that I would want to make ice cream in a different way too! Here are some ice cream crafts that look good enough to eat.
In addition to making ice cream, I also love to bake. So when I’m feeling extra ambitious, I love ice cream sandwiches! These charms are so cute and nostalgic, plus the colors really pop!
A lot of my project ideas come from me wondering if a specific material will work in a different way. “Hm, I wonder if Mod Podge Photo Transfer will work on clay” (it does) “What will happen if I use Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge with tissue paper?” (confetti mugs) “This alcohol ink set looks like stone when blended together. What will it look like on a mug?” (this). So being me and loving alcohol ink for the last few years, I though about these plastic beads I had at the office and naturally wondered what they would like like covered in alcohol ink.

As a kid, I loved to read. I was all about summer reading activities and challenges as a child. I loved filling out my summer reading chart at the library and checking out as many new books as I could. Reading is a great way to pass time during those lazy summer days and I’ve found a few ideas to help you encourage your child to participate in summer reading.
Make a tote for your child’s library books with their favorite story on the check out card. They’ll want to take their bag of books everywhere and bring it back to the library ASAP to show it off.
