Making food sculpture is a great way to play with your food! I like this Ice Cream Cone Sculpture project because it’s easy to make and can be used as a prop for an impromptu play, decoration for a summertime celebration, or a fun work of art. Because this project is easy to assemble and dissemble, you can still use and reuse the stuffing for future projects as well. If you want to make your ice cream cone seem a bit more finished, you can also choose to glue the stuffing in place and add sequin sprinkles to the top. Want to add another layer to your ice cream cone? Older kids can spray paint their stuffing before assembling their ice cream cone to create different flavors of ice cream. Ice cream sculptures are a great way to stay cool this summer!
