I organized a Cold Stone Creamery tour for our preschool group. It was $8 a child (which included a waffle bowl with ice cream) and there was a 13 child minimum. The manager started out by teaching the kids an ice cream song. Then she took them in the back and showed them how they make ice cream. While the ice cream was being made (It took 9 minutes) she let them take turns going into the big freezer and helping her take inventory. After the ice cream was finished she gave each of the children a sample of it. Then they washed their hands and were able to go behind the counter and choose one flavor of ice cream and one topping to mix together. Then it was put into a waffle bowl for them to eat. The kids all had a blast! In my opinion it was definitely worth the $8. I think this would be a fun thing to do with my nieces and nephews.
