We want to set up an ice cream parlour in our role play area for the summer term.

 

Has anyone got any good ideas on what to put in there?

What did you use for ice cream, cones etc.

 

Thanks

we have done this a few times - we've used differant coloured playdough, coloured rice for sprinkles, cheap bowls from £1 shop- we have also used ball pit balls for ice cream and those polystyrene chip cones as 'cones'. i have heard of people using instant mash potato and proper ice cream scoops - depends how brave you are lol !!

I had a beach/ice cream shop role play a couple of years ago. I've attached a couple of photos in case you'd like to see. I used coloured playdough for ice cream and made chocolate playdough too. For lollipops I cut thick card painted orange then sandwiched it around a real lollipop stick (used rubber bands to hold together until dry). The cones I made were just cardboard and worked ok for a bit but got softened a bit when the playdough was added. I'd rethink these if I did it again.

 

Love the idea of coloured rice for sprinkles

klc, I see you are in Leicester, we are too and we use yarn cones which we get from our local sock factory free of charge. They love us taking them as they have to get rid of them so if you can get over her eyou can have as many as you like. :D

 

I'll pm you to tell you where we are ;)

Not made it but may be worth a try.. some may manage it with older groups..

 

we had card cones and tissue paper as ice cream.. used lots, had a box with holes cut out so the cones could sit in it upright.. children helped make them so they were looked after and easily replaced..

i got bubbles in the shape of ice cream cones from our local tesco store! Could you use them as props for your ice cream parlour or just some outdoor play!!
