What Fun! How to Make Ice Cream in a Bag

This looks like something really easy and fun. It is something my grandchildren will love to doing. They think it is great helping in the kitchen. In about 5 minutes we can all be eating ice cream.

This Ice Cream in a Bag recipe is from Kaboose

What you’ll need:
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup milk or half & half
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
6 tablespoons rock salt
1 pint-size Ziploc plastic bag
1 gallon-size Ziploc plastic bag
Ice cubes

The larger bag is for the ice and rock salt, the smaller bag is for the food ingredients. Seal the small bag, put it in the larger bag, seal, then shake the whole shebang for 5 minutes or so until the mixture is homemade ice cream.
Make sure to read all of the instructions, some notes are included about using fruit juice instead of cream for a nice homemade fruit sorbet.

DIY How to Make a Tread Rack

Make this DIY Thread Rack with instructions from craftedition.
Boy, do I need one of these. I have spools of tread in several thread boxes; as well as, on smaller spool holders. It will really be awesome to have them all in one place. This project looks like something I can do; if, I can get my husband to cut the dowels for me. Here is the link: Thread Rack – Tutorial
You’ll be able to keep your threads neatly organized in one place. A quick glance will help you find that "certain" color.

Supplies needed are basic:
Pegboard, dowel rods, wood glue; optional paint and frame trim boards. The trickiest part of the job is going to gluing each piece of dowel into the holes on the pegboard; but. I am sure the result will be well worth the trouble. I am going to give the hot glue for wood a try on this project. Cut the dowels in various lengths and you will be able hold all types of thread spools–small, large and even serger thread spools.
