Magazine Collage Craft Ice Cream Cone for Kids

magazine collage art summer craft
Today is National Ice Cream Day!! Can you believe there’s a holiday to celebrate this frozen dessert?! Ice cream is a classic summer treat and the perfect way to cool off in Florida’s unbearable heat. I wanted to make some fun crafts with my boys to celebrate our love for ice cream. I found this cool collage by Learn Craft Grow on Instagram and had to create it. We have so many old magazines at home so this was the perfect project. This magazine collage craft is a great activity to help children practice using scissors and recognizing colors. You can also let kids practice counting how many square pieces are in each ice cream scoop that they create. Hope you enjoy making this super cool ice cream cone magazine collage craft for kids.
