Want something khổng lồ keep the kids busy? Well, for at least 30 minutes or so? Here’s how they can make homemade ice cream in a can!

To make homemade ice cream in a can, you will need to lớn empty & clean metal coffee cans, with the lids. One will be a 12-16 ounce kích cỡ and the other will be a 2-3 pound size. The 12-16 kích cỡ must be able to fit inside of the larger coffee can with a bit of round all the way around it.

*

Inside the smaller coffee can, you will mix up all of the ingredients. My recipe is for a very basic vanilla ice cream, but you can change it up by mixing in some add-in items. I added some crushed Heath candy bars to lớn ours, but you could also địa chỉ cửa hàng nuts, fruit, chocolate chips và more.

*

After you got it all mixed in, grab your duct tape. You want khổng lồ secure the lid on the can you just filled, but first make sure the outside of the can is dry, so wipe it down with a dry towel if you need to. I tape the lid on by taping a “plus sign” over the top và then a piece all around the edge of the lid and the đứng đầu of the can.

Put your smaller, ice cream can into the center of the larger can. Place some crushed ice all around the small can. When the can about half full of ice, sprinkle some rock salt (about 1/3 cup) on the ice. Pack with more ice until nearly full & sprinkle more salt (about 1/3 – một nửa cup) on the top. 

*

Cover your large can with its lid, wipe down any moisture or frost that is collecting on the outside of the can & tape the lid on. 

*

Have the kids sit on a floor & roll the can back & forth for about 15 minutes. After that time, open up the big can và pull out the small can. You should see the ice cream starting to size on the sides and bottom. Scrape down the sides, put the lid back on, và wipe your can with a dry cloth. Tape the lid on, but because the outside of your can is wet and frosty, it’s likely that you will need more duct tape this time. Since it may be hard lớn get the tape to lớn stick to the can, wrap enough duct tape so that the tape is securing tightly to lớn itself, rather than the can.

Drain off the water in the big can. Place your small can back into the large can and repeat with the ice và salt like you did the first time. Tape the lid of the big can on too — but just like the small can, you’ll likely need more. We wrapped from đứng top to bottom all the way around & then repeated going in the opposite direction.

*

Let the kids roll the can some more — another 15 minutes. When you are done, open up your cans & you’ll see that you have even more ice cream. Scrap down the sides. You can eat it at this point — it will be a bit soft, but if your kids are lượt thích mine, they won’t care. I personally prefer to stick it in the freezer for a couple hours lớn firm it up a bit.

And after all that “hard” work, you have homemade ice cream perfect for a hot summer day!
