School vacations can be a challenge to come up with new activities to keep the kids entertained.  Staying at home with the family can bring a new twist to keeping the kids entertained. How about a twist on the traditional tea party by switching things up and hosting an interactive ice cream party with the kids.

Make it a Zoom play dough party with everyone sharing their playdoh ice cream via a Zoom Ice Cream Party. (Hint: In the summer a ice cream bowl party set can be used, but this is a great time to troll through the summer plastic ware and utilize it for a Birthday party or Stay At Home Ice Cream Party.)

Add two ingredients plus cute ice cream bowls and let the ice cream party begin! Any bowl or any ice cream cone will work!
