Hi, I'm Pam on behalf of Expert Village and today I'm going to show you different art projects for kids. Here's a really fun treat that kids are going to love to make because not only do they get to have fun making it but they get to eat it after they're done. We're going to make homemade ice cream. Now if you want to start with vanilla which is the easiest to make of course, you want to add in a little zip-lock bag, a half a cup of milk, a tablespoon of sugar and a quarter of a teaspoon of vanilla. Now if you want to add chocolate or strawberry you can and how much you add of that is going to depend upon how much you want it to taste like that. You take this little bag and you want to take a one gallon bag, and you want to fill this gallon bag half way up with ice. Now obviously that's not half way but you get the point, you want to fill it up to about here. And then, you want to add six tablespoons of rock salt which you can get at Target, Wal-Mart, even the grocery store. You want to add that in with your ice. Now you want to make sure to do this over a towel or something because it can get a little bit messy. Pour the rock salt in with the ice and then you want to put your milk and sugar and vanilla combination in there. Make sure to seal the bag before you put it in and then you want to squeeze all of the air out and seal this bag. Now, you want to shake it up, like I said, make sure it's sealed. The kids are going to love this because they get to shake it up and after about four minutes, your mixture inside is ready to eat. Now the longer and harder you shake it, the thicker the ice cream is going to get.
