For the DIY ice cream playdoh, you’ll need:

  • 2 cups of White Frosting
  • 5 1/2 cups of Powdered Sugar
  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Food Coloring

For the playdoh ice cream process, you’ll need:

  • Ice Cream Scooper
  • Ice Cream Cones
  • Fun Toppings
  • Several Small Mixing Dishes

How to Make Ice Cream Playdoh

  • In a large bowl mix the Frosting with the Powdered Sugar.
  • Start mixing the ingredients with your hands like you’re kneading dough.
  • Once the consistency of the mixture is like a Playdoh you’ve got it.
  • Split up the dough into separate “scoops” so you can add food coloring to them.
  • Place the smaller portions in the small mixing bowls, press your finger into the middle to create a crater, then  add a couple of drops to the dough in the center. Knead the dough from the outside in until the desired color is reached.
  • Take your Ice Cream scooper and dole out the perfect scoop onto your cones. Decorate and enjoy!!!

Adding Ice Cream Flavors

Another really fun way to make take this activity to the next level is to add some natural flavoring to the playdoh. If you take some of your favorite fruits and blend them up prior to the creation, you can simply add in a touch of flavor into the process.
