Charlie wanted Willy Wonka to invent a way of making chocolate ice cream so that it stays cold for hours and hours without being in the refrigerator ... sadly we couldn't do that but we did have fun watching it melt and then making sundaes.
We put equal scoops of ice-cream (talking about fair test) in the garden in bright sunlight and the shade, on the kitchen worktop and in the fridge and watched which was the quickest to melt. P enjoyed feeling the melted ice-cream and I and G enjoyed checking which was the fastest. We also talked about why it melted.
Then after this the girls enjoyed using a variety of toppings and make yummy sundaes in the style of Willy Wonka with sprinkles, marshmallows, chocolate sauce, wafers, squirty cream, glace cherries and strawberries.
