Montessori-inspired Ice Cream Activities for Kids

It is so hot outside! Nothing cools me down like ice cream does.  

Our family LOVES ice cream, whether it's non dairy, sorbet, or something else to meet the dietary needs of the family. One could say we're quite passionate about it. Don't even get me started on the toppings.

It's no secret that we love turning passions into Montessori-inspired unit studies. And so it is with ice cream.
