#DIY: Ice Cream Dough – Fun For Kids And Pranks!

Ice Cream Dough

Ice Cream Dough

My daughter loves to go around pulling pranks on the family. She was looking for a funny but simple prank that she could use to trick her older brother when we can across this pin on Pinterest.

You can use this dough as a science experiment at home in the kitchen, for an afternoon craft on a rainy day, or make this at your next girl scout or cub scout meeting. Use any food colors to make the “flavor” ice cream you are looking for.

The original pin said it even smelled like ice cream but my kids and I found out that it mostly smells like whatever type of conditioner you use. Either way we hope you enjoy this recipe and make sure to send us pictures of the ice cream you made!
