Craft Corner: DIY Ice Cream Stand


It's National Ice Cream Month and in the summer the kids want it all the time. This DIY Ice Cream Stand is the sweetest and easiest way to give your kids the good stuff without giving them a sugar high. It's travel friendly and will keep them occupied at home or on the go.

Here's what you need:

  • A box
  • Yarn
  • Scissors
  • Burlap
  • Hot Glue

After you choose which colored yarn you'd like (or what "flavor" of ice cream you want), create a bunch of pompoms. Trim off the edges to your liking and that's one scoop! Don't get obsessed about making them "perfect". When was the last time you saw a perfect ice cream scoop IRL?

To make the cones, cut a square of burlap. Roll one side into the other to form a cone shape and hot glue to secure.

I made a divider out of spare cardboard by cutting two slits on each piece and fitting them together. It goes in the box to separate the flavors of ice cream, cones, and other accessories you'd like to add. This is a great way to spark your child's imagination without any batteries! It also makes a fabulous gift.
