DIY Color Matching Ice Cream Playset

When Lizzy went to the children's museum one of her favorite activities was the ice cream stand. The cones were made of foam sheets and the ice cream was foam balls. I recreated something similar using foam sheets from the dollar tree and a pack of 10 balls also from the dollar tree. To make the cones I just shaped the foam sheets into cones and hot glued them and that's all I had to do. For $2 and very little effort Lizzy had her own ice cream set. She really enjoys playing with it. For younger children you could use this to color match the cone and ice cream. Lizzy uses a ladle to scoop the ice cream into the cones she really gets into pretending she is making ice cream cones for us.
