Book of the Day

Friday's Book of the day is...

Curious George goes to an Ice Cream Shop by H. A. Rey.

This book goes along with Chocolate Milkshake Day. I could not resist. Curious George books are a great series of books which we all enjoy.

Activity #1 Make homemade ice cream. Either use an ice cream maker if you have one or try this easy coffee can method. Discuss what is happening when you are making it, from where milk comes from to how it thickens when it freezes. Most importantly, eat the finished product! Also discuss how it melts as you are eating.

Activity #2 Here are some ice cream printable pages, and a printable "I is for ice cream" tracing page.

Activity #3 Here is a art project to make a marble painted ice cream cone that uses an eyedropper for the paint. I have found this method less messy with greenbean!
