This ice cream craft and play is a double scoop of fun because kids can make craft ice cream cones, and then use them for pretend play Ice Cream Shoppe after!

My girls and I had so much fun making these ice cream cones out of foam balls and paper, and then playing Ice Cream Shoppe together with all the flavors you can imagine!

With just a few supplies you can make these ice cream cones in minutes and be playing with them soon after (especially when it’s warm and the paint dries even quicker!).

It’s the perfect activity on a hot summer day when you want to take a break inside, or on a rainy day with nowhere to go. If you’re having an ice cream social party you could make them up ahead of time and do this as a fun party activity!

I’m sharing the full tutorial at so click the link to read the details and see more photos!

To set the scene for your Ice Cream Shoppe pretend play, or your ice cream party, be sure to download my free printable ice cream posters!

These ice cream posters will be perfect for my party!! I love the colors, so fun and dreamy!
