how to make ice cream in a bag

For the longest time, I’ve seen pins and posts about making ice cream in a bag. Today for science, we finally did it. I gave each of my kids their own individual bag to make. Here’s the recipe that we followed.     Shaking for 10 minutes was the hardest part, but I loved it because they really had to work for their ice cream.
