I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream

Impromptu dance parties are a favorite for our family.  We have the different gaming systems with the "just dance" programs but have found the same "dance" videos on You Tube.  Watching them on You Tube is much quicker for us, our TV is connected to our computer so we can pull up videos within seconds.

It is very touching watching all the kids, no matter the age, dancing, singing and laughing together - ability and coordination doesn't matter as they are just having fun.

Today we decided to mix it up and had our dance party while making "Ice cream in a bag"

What you need:

Ice cubes (1/2 fill each large ziploc bags)
1/2 cup rock salt
1 medium size ziploc bag
1 large size ziploc bag
1 cup half and half
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

Optional: 1 tsp chocolate syrup or strawberry syrup, for flavored ice cream.

Combine sugar, half and half, and vanilla in medium ziploc bag then seal tightly.  Add optional flavors if you want a flavored ice cream before sealing.

Place salt and ice in large ziploc bag, then place sealed smaller bag in large bag.  Seal large bag.  Now shake the bags until the mixture hardens (about 5-10 minutes).  We danced while shaking our ice cream making the time go faster.  Feel the small bag to determine when it's done.

When done take the smaller bag out of the larger bag and enjoy your ice cream right out of the bag.
