Vanilla ice cream, milk, red food coloring w/peppermint extract
OR Strawberry syrup, quart size zip close baggies, drinking straws
Give each child a scoop of ice cream into their zip close bag.
Let them choose their flavor (Vanilla, Mint, or Strawberry). Squeeze the chosen flavors in the bag. Seal the baggie and have kids squish it until it is all mixed and partly melted. Open just a corner of the zip closed top and insert a straw. Enjoy your treats! Tell the Bible story and every time you mention the main character’s name have kids take a sip of their sweetheart shake.
Other flavors: Orange dream with orange juice; Chocolate with chocolate syrup; Chocolate cherry with chocolate syrup and maraschino cherry juice. Decorate straws in advance with heart stickers for an extra holiday twist.
