Easy Summer Activities - Ice Cream Pizzas!

Sometimes it feels like there are too many times during our day-to-day lives that I have to tell my kids "no." No, Seamus, don't hit. No, Madeleine, you can't watch Jurassic Park 3. No, you guys, you cannot have Pirate Booty at 8 o'clock in the morning. So, when Madeleine asked me randomly if we could make ice cream pizzas (an idea she saw on some cartoon), I happily said "yes." 
It was super simple, and I bet you already have most of what you need at home. We popped some break-n-bake chocolate chip cookies in the oven. Then, after they had cooled, we just added ice cream and toppings. We used nonpareils and mini-marshmallows, but the possibilities are endless!
Needless to say, it went over well with the kiddos. They had fun decorating them, and of course, gobbled them right up.
It made a super easy dessert feel like such an event - so much fun!
Are you doing any fun little summer activities? In a lot of ways, summer is our winter. We stay indoors a lot because of the heat, but we do make sure to at least go swimming in our pool every weekend. I'm so happy we have that right in our backyard.

Have a great weekend!
