Gift Idea - A "Just Add Ice-Cream Kit!"

Here's a gift idea for Christmas, birthdays, daycare or teacher gifts or just because - a "Just Add Ice-Cream Kit!" I saw this idea on My Lovely Little Nest's facebook page (and have since noticed similar ideas on Pinterest too). I made 3 of these for Christmas gifts last year. 

One day when the girl's were both in daycare, I wandered around town to find everything I needed. I purchased some foil trays, cute little jars with a red gingham pattern on top, some cardboard ice-cream cups (with spoons) and cellophane from a cheap shop, and then the mini marshmallows, crushed peanuts, hundreds & thousands, a scoop, chocolate topping, candy canes and waffle cones from Woolworths, the choc malt balls from The Reject Shop, and the ice-cream serviettes from Big W. 

I bought enough for 3 hampers (each family had 4, 4 and 5 people), and placed it all in the foil container. You could use a basket as well. In the little jars I put hundreds & thousands, and crushed nuts. In mini self-sealing bags I put the mini marshmallows and choc balls. I think it came together well! 

Altogether it cost $44.85, so less than $15 each which I was happy with! Wrap the hamper in cellophane, a ribbon and a gift tag, and you are done! It's the perfect gift for a family to create a yummy dessert, or as part of a family night - I love that it involves everyone in the family, and all they have to do is add ice-cream and enjoy!
