Are your kids always up for a party too? I imagine they are- life is a party when you are a kid! One good thing about homeschooling- we can turn anything into an "educational" activity. Strawberry picking?? FIELDTRIP. Cut strawberries, whip cream, bake biscuits, make home made ice cream??? HOME EC. Decorate the table, draw strawberries, make a party sign for the door?? ART. Eat strawberry shortcake, ice cream and strawberry lemonade?? AFTER SCHOOL PARTY!
And this is how we made the ice cream. In our ice cream ball from L.L.Bean. This is Dave's thing. You just sit on the floor and roll the ball around (back and forth to the kids) for 20 minutes, and the cream inside (surrounded by ice and salt) turns into yummy ice cream. Magic!
