    Can you believe that I still haven’t tried making ice cream in a bag? I really should do that activity with the kiddo before the chilly fall weather sets in and makes me run for the blankets instead of ice cream. 🙂

    This post will be featured at our Get Your Shine On link party this Thursday. We hope you’ll join us again!

      I hope you do give it a try! Watch out, though, because once you make it your kiddo will want to do it again and again 🙂

      Thanks for featuring my post! I’ll definitely stop by again.
