I don’t know about you, but it has certainly been hot where we live. Today it got to 97 degrees and I don’t even want to know what the heat index was! One of the best ways to cool down is with ice cream and our kids LOVE ice cream! Who am I kidding? So do I!!! But, with three kids, it can get pretty expensive to go out for ice cream all the time. We can easily spend $25-$30 at Coldstone, $15 at Dairy Queen, $10 at McDonalds, etc. But, I found a way to spend around a dollar per kid and they are just as happy.
It is also a fun way to wrap up a grocery shopping trip as a reward for good behavior. Yes, it is still fun to go to Coldstone or Dairy Queen, but it isn’t something I am willing to do once a week. This is much more budget friendly!
