To help beat the heat, we've been enjoying a lot of icy cold treats lately. From ice pops to ice cream, if it's hot, chances are my kids are covered in their sticky remnants. It's summer, after all. If the kiddos want ice cream, they shall have ice cream!
Speaking of ice cream, did you know that July 17th is National Ice Cream Day? I had absolutely no idea ice cream had a day of its own, but I was thrilled to find out that it does. In my home, we like any excuse we can find to enjoy ice cream together!
This year, we're celebrating National Ice Cream Day a little early. Just to get some practice in before the official day. We wouldn't want to fudge it up, no pun intended. Okay. I'm lying. We just wanted ice cream, and it's hot as Hades outside. We'll just make sure we celebrate ice cream twice.
Today, I treated the kiddos to something extra-special, and I even let them help! We had Root Beer Floats, which gave me the perfect opportunity to try out my Curious Chef Root Beer Float Mug Set.
Haven't heard of Curious Chef? They're awesome! This brand makes REAL cooking tools, designed with little hands and safety in mind. They have cookie cutters, baking and decorating sets, and even a 30-Piece complete caddy, full of whisks, spatulas, and other must have kitchen gadgets. These products are all BPA-free, and are totally safe for your little chefs to use.
Sophie and Xander were super-excited that they were allowed to help assemble the Root Beer Floats. Our other mugs are glass, and we usually don't allow the kids to handle them. Thanks to the Curious Chef Root Beer Float Mug Set, there were no worries about breaking anything. These mugs are generously sized at 20oz., yet small enough for kids to easily handle. They also feature an easy to grip handle. Absolutely genius, folks.
In addition to being totally kid-friendly, these BPA-Free mugs are also dishwasher safe for easy clean-up.
Here's what you'll need:
- Root Beer
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- Whipped Cream topping (optional)
- Cherries (optional)
Once your ice cream is in your mugs, slowly pour some root beer overtop. It will bubble and fizz quite a bit, so going S-L-O-W-L-Y is important if you want to avoid a volcanic mess.
Top with a pitted or Maraschino cheery, and serve.
They were also thrilled to have helped make their very own Root Beer Floats! They felt so accomplished since they scooped, poured, and topped, all by themselves. I think we may have some future chefs on our hands. They love helping prepare food and drink, and it seems they both have an interest in cooking in general!
We had a great time at our impromptu National Ice Cream Day Root Beer Float party. Not only did we get some practice for the REAL National Ice Cream Day, which is July 17th, the kids also got to help make our icy cold summer treats. My favorite part, of course, is the memories that were made.
