Hot August days call for some cool play, and nothing says cool like a little ice cream shop play!! Last July we had fun with making these DIY giant ice cream popsicles, and did you catch our recent painted rock ice cream cones? This mini ice cream shop is simple as can be – just print, cut, fold out and you’re on way to a deliciously fun day of popsicle play. Once you’ve finished playing with your ice cream shop, you can reuse your printable by crafting them into adorable ice cream brooches!
PLAY ICE CREAM SHOP MATERIALS:
- Ice Cream Shop Printable (download right below)
- Heavy Paper or Card Stock
Simply print the ice cream shop printable, cut out and fold as shown. This stands up on it’s own to make a cute mini play shop or even a small stick puppet theatre. I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream shop pretend play!
Is ice cream a late summer favorite in your house too? For an icy treat as delightful as this printable and great for post-play snacking, we often like to make our own fruity ice creams – nothing beats homemade! For kid-pleasing frozen fun that’s super quick, you can also try some mini ice cream sandwiches, or greek yogurt & berry ice cream cones.
