Ice Cream Cone Project Details

Age Group: 2+ yrs

Difficulty: Super Easy

Time To Complete: 15 min

The time to complete this craft depends on multiple factors. If you cut out the pieces for your child, it will go much faster. However, I challenge you to let every kid cut out and decorate each cone independently.

This is a great opportunity for everyone to work on their cutting skills.

Step 1: Trace your ice cream

Once you have collected your supplies above, grab a pencil and trace the ice cream on a paper plate. If you don’t have a paper plate on hand, feel free to use paper or other available supplies.

If you have older kids, let them trace out their own cones. We used the same shape for this rain cloud project as well.

Step 2: Cut out your ice cream cone

Now it’s time to cut out your ice cream and cone. For the cone, use a pencil and trace out a triangle on a piece of paper. Let your child pick out what color cone they would like to use.

Step 3: It’s time to decorate your ice cream craft

Once everything is cut out, it’s time to start coloring. You can choose to have your kids color with colored pencils, crayons, or markers or even paint their ice cream cones.

We went the easy route and just used crayons.

Feel free to add decorations or embellishments to each cone. We used real ice cream sprinkles, and my kids loved it.

We used a glue stick and then dumped the sprinkles and spread them around until they stuck. Then, dump off the excess.

I love these fun, colorful clothespin magnets to hang crafts on our fridge and dishwasher!

I hope you have an absolute blast recreating this fun ice cream craft. Kids love ice cream, so I can promise this ice cream craft will be a hit!
