Make Wacky But Yummy Sundaes

Have you ever put olives on chocolate ice cream? How about maple syrup on mint chocolate chip? Try coming up with new combos and have a taste test!

Best for kids aged: Three and up

What you’ll need: Ice cream; a cabinet or pantry filled with prospective toppings.

Directions: Serve yourselves ice cream in a bowl, and then raid the cabinets for anything that can be used as a topping. Once your creation is complete, sample each other’s treats.

Why they’ll love it: Who doesn’t love ice cream sundaes? They’re even better when you create your own concoction.
