All you need is a smartphone to whip out at any given moment to capture those memories, but what next?
We all scream for ice cream! Help kids make it at home for a yummy, hands-on project to celebrate the last few days of summer! Grab a tray of ice cubes, rock salt, milk, vanilla, and a few other ingredients for an end-of-summer treat.
