​Our ice cream cone craft is the perfect activity for children on hot summer days.

Here are the simple materials you need to make these craft activities with young crafters.

  • A copy of our ice cream cone craft template – the download link for the template can be found at the very bottom of this page.
  • Printer and high quality card stock paper – we use this cardstock available from Amazon and love it.
  • Coloring pencils, markers or wax crayons – children can color their ice cream ball using whichever they prefer
  • Scissors & Glue – for gluing the ice cream shape together and adding sprinkles or other decorations. We used glue sticks but white glue would work too.
  • Mini pom poms, tissue paper, cupcake liners (optional) – for decorating these cute paper ice cream cones

How To Make An Ice Cream Cone Craft

Step 1: Print a copy of our ice cream cone craft template. The download instructions and link are located at the very bottom of this post. Each template has a deconstructed ice cream cone including: a cone shape, 3 scoops of ice cream, sprinkles and a cherry.

Step 2: Have kids color the different parts of the ice cream cone craft using their choice of wax crayons, coloring pencils or markers. They can try to replicate the color of their favorite flavors while making their own cones.

Step 3: Using scissors, kids need to cut out all the different parts of their ice cream cone. Especially young children will need some extra help cutting out the smaller pieces. So, plan to help them cut out their sprinkles and cherry.

Step 4: Glue the different parts of the ice cream cone craft together. The template comes with three scoops of ice cream but you don’t have to use them all. Children can also make this ice cream cone craft with one scoop or two.
