We’ll start at the very top with the sprinkles. Cut out a few small rectangles from different colored paper to be the sprinkles. Then, guide their little hands as they carefully glue the sprinkles to the top of the ice cream section.

If you want to make different types of sprinkles, you can see what you have around the house. You can use stickers, pom poms, perler beads (we used these on one of ours), or anything that looks good!

Now, let’s move on to the cone – the foundation of our ice cream craft. Explain to your child that they’re going to attach the cone to the bottom of the ice cream. Let them apply the glue to the top edge of the cone and then help them line it up so it sits just right beneath the ice cream.

It’s time to add the eyes. Hand your child the eye pieces and watch as they carefully glue one on each side of the ice cream, just above where the mouth would be.
