This activity is great for extending your child's knowledge and understanding of the world around them, as they learn about different types of food and where they come from. It's also a good way of developing their fine motor skills as they prepare ingredients and handle utensils. And it teaches them an important life skill - how to prepare tasty, nutritious meals (and the occasional yummy treat!).
How to extend the fun
This ice cream recipe uses strawberries. Can your child think of any other ice cream flavours - eg vanilla, chocolate, choc chip? Which flavour do they like best? What unusual flavours would they invent if they could create any flavour they liked? The sillier the better!
