  • Ice cream scoop
  • Chilled bowl
  • Two vanilla wafer cookies or sandwich cookies

What You Do:

  2. As you help your child create a face, ask him to name each part. Start a discussion by asking questions such as, “How many eyes does a mouse have?” or “What color nose should the mouse have?”
  3. Have your child carefully place two cookies into the top of the ice cream to create ears.
  4. Encourage your child to add a red jelly bean for the nose, two black jelly beans for the eyes, and chocolate sprinkles for the whiskers.
