Making gelato

I came across this fantastic science experiment from Kidzworld to make your own ice cream. It looked too good to be true, so I thought we should try it for ourselves. After one false start where my son didn’t realise the importance of holding the bag upright whilst adding the (liquid!) ingredients, he had good fun shaking the bag for 10 minutes. Though he did complain of sore arms, the lure of ice cream kept him going. And he was amazed (as was I, I must admit!) that it came out of the bag actually looking like ice cream. What’s more, it was delicious (I felt it necessary to complete a taste test)! Needless to say, this experiment has not been confined to Italy week!


Hi! I’m Claire, stay-at-home-mum to two gorgeous boys and a lovely girl. My kids are energetic, spirited and full-of-life, and they certainly keep me on my toes. I love spending time with them and seeing them learn and experience new things – I hope that this blog will give you ideas to try out on the children in your life!
