Ice Cream Cone Matching Game

Ice Cream Cone Matching Game craft

Here's a cool Ice Cream game to make and play. Crayola® Twistables™ and Gel Markers are cool for a summer day!

  • 1.

    Find out about ice cream. How is it made? Ice cream cones were introduced to the world at the St. Louis World Exposition in 1904. That makes them a year younger than Crayola Crayons! What are your favorite flavors and colors? Combine them in this fun game.

  • 2.

    Start by making cone and scoop patterns. With Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils, draw a triangle on the unprinted side of a recycled cereal box. Draw a rounded scoop shape for the ice cream. Use Crayola Scissors to cut out the patterns.

  • 3.

    Trace around your cone patterns on brown construction paper. Trace around scoop patterns on white construction paper. Make at least a dozen of each-the more the better!

  • 4.

    Use Crayola Twistables to color the scoops to look like your favorite ice cream flavors. Try making juicy red strawberries for strawberry ice cream or delicious black streaks of chocolate for fudge ripple. Some ice cream companies have experimented with flavors such as garlic and ketchup. Have fun adding some silly flavors of your own.

  • 5.

    Use Crayola Gel Markers to draw intersecting diagonal lines on the brown paper cones. On the backs of the cones, use Twistables to write the names of your ice cream flavors.

  • 6.

    To play the game, place the flavor titles and colored scoops face down. Arrange in neat rows. Players take turns flipping over a scoop and a cone. If they match, the player keeps both. If they don't match, the pieces are returned face down. The player with the most luscious ice cream cones wins the game.
