    Invite
    Cover a 3½-inch Styrofoam ball with acrylic paint, and let dry. Glue it to a paper soup bowl ($1; thinkgarnish.com), and attach a wooden spoon (three for $1; thinkgarnish.com) with a ribbon and a tag (download for free at thetomkatstudio.com/parenting).

    Sweet treat
    Bake cupcakes right in flat-bottomed ice cream cones. Scoop 2/3 cup batter into each cone and place them right side up in a high-sided baking pan for 20 minutes at 350°F.

    Favor
    Fill this wooden cone (two for $1; thinkgarnish.com) with your favorite candy and adorn it with a free downloadable tag (thetomkatstudio.com/parenting) or a ribbon.

    Display your ice cream toppings in an upside-down paper fortune teller (find out how to make one at enchantedlearning.com).

    Activity
    Blindfold the kids and have them compete in a guess-the-flavor ice cream contest.
