Ice Cream in a Bag This is SOOO easy… and delicious! In a small Ziplock bag, put: 1/2 C. half and half (milk works too) 1 Tbps. sugar 1 tsp. vanilla Insert that bag into a larger, one gallon Ziplock filled with ice and salt. Shake the bag for five minutes. Kids love that part! Then, remove the smaller bag which should have turned into ice cream. I did this in elem school and have been looking every where for it!

A fun game to teach COIN VALUES. Simply roll the dice (once per turn) and take that number of pennies. As often as possible exchange 5 pennies for 1 nickel, 2 nickels for 1 dime, 2 dimes and 1 nickel for 1 qtr., and 4 qtrs. for the $1 bill. The first one to $1 wins the game. Perfect for some Kinders and most 1st graders.
