Inspire your child's inner chemist with this “60 Second Science” video and activity! You’ll need to gather up a few ingredients for this fun DIY ice cream project including ice cubes, salt, half & half, whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla – plus a few kitchen utensils and supplies to whip it all together. Once you have your tools, this video clip will help you see how the process of making ice cream actually demonstrates how liquids can change to a solid state when the temperature is lowered.
