This adorable summer project is suitable for preschoolers and makes a creative classroom activity/game, ice cream party craft, or home project.


Easy Ice Cream Craft for Kids

Playing with these ice cream cone templates is a great way to teach your children color recognition, and the concept of patterns, help them improve their fine motor skills, and learn to focus.

There are so many different ways how to use our free ice cream templates. You can simply color them, cut them out on colored paper, or let your kids be creative.

We decided to cut them on colored paper and use the pattern cards with it. In the following instructions, I will explain everything to you.

Ice Cream Template Materials

Did your kids enjoy this easy ice cream game? Then try next our popular Ice Cream Bar or make these delicious Strawberry Popsicle at home! Or why don’t you through an ice cream party? They are so much fun!
If you prefer to keep crafting, give our Cupcake Printables, or Popsicle Templates a try.

Instructions for Ice Cream Templates

Step 1: Download Outline Ice Cream Template

Print our free ice cream cut-out template on white computer paper.

Step 2: Cut the Ice Cream Cut Outs

Next cut out the ice cream cone template and pattern cards.

Step 3: Copy the Shapes

Use the finished cutouts to copy them with a pencil on colored paper. Then cut them out again as often as you need them. To use the pattern cards you will need 3 scoops in yellow, pink, and blue.

Step 4: Ice Cream Game

Now you can use our free pattern cards and work on your children’s preschool skills.

Therefore print out our free pattern cards and cut them along the line.

Then simply place the cards next to your cut-out ice cream cone pattern craft and let your child arrange the ice cream scoops matching the colors on the cards.

Of course, that is only possible if the ice cream scoop cutouts match the colors on our pattern cards. For this to happen you will have to plan in advance and make sure you have enough scoops in the right colors cut out.

In case your child likes to play with the pattern cards, I advise you to laminate them.
This way they last longer and can be reused over and over again.

Do the same with your finished ice cream template and save it as a keepsake. It will stay nice for many years to come.

Step 4: Paste (optional)

When your child is done playing with the ice cream scoop let them glue the cones on white paper and your ice cream cone craft is done.

Cupcake Liner Ice Cream Cones

Here you simply use fun colored cupcake liners instead of printing our ice cream scopes. Then use crafting materials you already have at home to decorate them nicely. You can use pom poms, glitter, sprinkles, etc.
