    Ice Cream in a bag
    By Rosieo

    I forgot to post the directions the other day so here it is. We did this today in class and the kids loved it.

    What you need:
    gallon freezer ziplock bags
    quart freezer ziplock freezer bags (the other bags are not thick enough)
    whole chocolate milk (2% or 1% take longer to do)
    rock salt

    In the quart bag put about 1 cup of chocolate milk. Zip it tight.
    In the gallon bag put some rock salt and ice, I'm not sure how much, I just guess, maybe 3/4 cup each or so.
    Put quart bag into the gallon bag with the salt and ice. Zip tight.
    Let the kids knead or roll the bag on their desk and really work the chocolate milk. Within 10 minutes or so the chocolate milk turns into ice cream. Let the kids scoop it into cups and enjoy it.

    I have the kids work in partners and one baggies setup is given to each group.

    I have also done this with my own kids when they were young on a hot summer day!

    I hope these directions make sense, if not please let me know.
