BOOK 1: The Ice Cream King by Steve Metzger
I like ice cream. Yes I do!
One scoop for me?
No! Make it two!
Hmmm two scoops of ice cream,
I want more
How about three?
No, make that four!
1, 2, 3, 4,
Splat! “oh no! It’s on the floor!”

Ice Cream Scoops
First we need a cone, nice and crunchy.
Then we need some ice cream, sweet and yummy.
Scoop ’em up, stack ’em on, up to the sky.
We love ice cream; my, oh my!
First comes vanilla, cold and sweet.
Then comes chocolate, a delicious treat.
Here’s some strawberry with sprinkles and a cherry too!
A super-duper scooper cone Just for you!
One scoop, two scoops,
Three scoops, four.
We love ice cream Let’s have some more!

SONG: Dance, Freeze, Melt!
I couldn’t find a very good ice cream song that involved “actions” for the group to do so we played this fun game inspired by Library Goddess. When the music was playing the kids danced around and then when I stopped the song I would shout FREEZE or MELT! For FREEZE the group had to pretend to be a frozen popsicle (no moving!)… For MELT everyone would melt down to the ground like ice cream. They LOVED doing this! Goes great with any song 🙂
