Last Wednesday my 6yo and I had our usual mama-daughter afternoon that ended up with a delightfully creative project. It all started with her love of all things ice cream which turned into a whole DIY creative craziness. As a result, we have created funky Ice Cream Fancies for the windows in her room. I founded it so pretty so I decided to put together a little DIY and to share the details of this creative activity with you.

What you need:

  1. Transparent foil paper or A4 PVC sheets
  2. Different colour glass paint
  3. Sheet with designs
  4. Transparent stickers  

How to:

  1. Draw fun designs of ice cream and summer patterns on the paper sheets
  2. Place transparent foil paper on top of your design sheet and trace the designs with the leading paint. Allow to dry.
  3. Squirt small portions of paint and completely fill the space in. Allow to dry. Be patient, and let it dry flat so your colours don’t run.

I could hardly wait to see what our products look like with the light shining through. Then I said: “It’s time for a break and some refreshing snacks!” My daughter jumped: “YASSSSS!”. I was lucky to have some Danonino ice prepared in the freezer. When I took it out, my daughter looked at me suspiciously but then immediately came up with the topping ideas: blueberries, honey, raspberry jam, rainbow sprinkles and even chocolate syrup! At the end, we both enjoyed our Danonino Ice cream creations a lot. It was so fun and really delicious, and healthy because Danonino contains less sugar than any other regular ice cream.

With Danonino ice popsicle you can easily make your own ice cream out of your favourite Danonino flavour. Just insert the Danonino popsicle sticks into the middle of each cup and freeze for four hours. To remove the ice cream from the cups, let them sit for about three minutes. For the toppings be creative and use whatever you like. Easy as that.

Just when we were done with our Danonino Ice, our ice cream creations were completely dry so we could easily stick them on the window glass. They were so pretty!
