Always a sucker for a free gift Olivia asked for the CBeebies magazine which came with a free ice cream/lolly play set this started a discussion about Ice Cream Vans and wanting to sell her ones from an Ice Cream Van.
We found a large cardboard box that I had been storing old clothes in but was empty now after a recent selling spree on Ebay! Once she had gone to bed I opened it up and constructed the Van ready for painting in the morning.
The next morning painting started and we used a lot of pink! The box took all day to dry and collapsed from the wetness and weight!
We left it to dry and I propped the box back up with flower support sticks and today we have decorated the box.
This evening has been spent serving us ice creams and all the toys have been queuing up for a try as well. My plan is to make some playdough/moon dust in different colours to make ice creams with. The main thing is I will be following Olivia’s lead on this and seeing where it takes us.
