Milkshake Day

For our last day I wanted to do something fun. Unfortunately, our weather did not allow us to enjoy the outdoors this day so we had to rely on indoor fun.

I had to start the day out with our graduation practice. Of course, this is very important so that everyone knows what is going to happen on graduation evening.

I had decided it would be fun to let the children make milkshakes.

I got each child a 99 cent cup at our local CVS. The cups had Avenger characters or Disney princesses on them. I also bought a pack of milkshake straws.

On milkshake day I brought in vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, strawberry syrup, and milk. I then had a small hand mixer to mix everything up.

Each child got to choose a vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry milkshake. The children added the ice cream to the mixing cup, poured in the syrup if needed, I poured in the milk because it was a new gallon jug. Then I showed them how to push the button on the mixer to mix everything together. (I guided now and then too.)

After everything was mixed, they poured it into their cup, added a straw and ENJOYED! Mmm Mmm good!

The last part of the project was for the children to wash out their cup, dry it, and put it in their backpack to go home. Remember how fun it was to wash dishes when you were little? Oh so long ago.

Patient, indeed, was the child who waited for the final milkshake! Sounds like yummy fun.
