ice cream castle

This was a really fun (and kid friendly) project that was the perfect culmination for our "castles" week at stay camp.  Detailed directions can be found here.  I grabbed the castle mold at our local grocery store - they were on sale too, 2 for $3!  I ran it through the dishwasher and then had the kids scoop some room temp. vanilla ice cream into the mold.  I gave them graham crackers in a Ziploc bag to crush into pieces to look like sand.  Then they decorated it with some candy shells, gummy sea creatures, ribbon flags and a princess. It was that simple.  I think this is going to become a summer tradition.  Do you have any fun summer traditions that you would like to share?
