  • Making Homemade Ice Cream? Have those who have them, bring in their machines and make sure you have all that's needed to make your ice cream.
  • If your function is church-wide, be sure to have a few games or activities for the kids. Simple games are best. For younger kids you could make a large ice cream or sundae on a poster and have them "pin the cherry" on the top.
  • Ice Cream Socials are great functions to have talent shows or skits.
