Ice Cream Cone Wappers

Tomorrow is National ice Cream Day and I have a fun guest post for you today!

Did you know Americans ate 1.54 billion gallons of ice cream in 2015? That’s 30,000,000 bathtubs full, or 2,300 Olympic-sized swimming pools! But what can we say? Nobody can resist a sweet vanilla cone on a hot summer day. It’s just not possible.



So, in related news, National Ice Cream Day is coming up on July 15th. It isn’t every day we get an excuse to eat dessert all day, so I’m getting prepared! This is a great opportunity to spend the day outside with the kiddos while eating some sweet frozen treats. Break out the swimsuits or yard games, fire up the grill, lay out the sundae toppings, and spend some quality time!


To really make the festivities special, Shari’s Berries designed a bunch of super cute printable wrappers for ice cream cones. Have the kids pick out their favorite ones and help them wrap the cones. They can even add their own personal touch with markers or stickers. They can choose from tropical, fruity, and polka-dotted wrappers (to name a few). It’ll really add a fun and mess-free flair to an already fun activity: eating ice cream!



These are a few absolutely delicious and totally decadent topping combinations:


S’mores: chocolate syrup, marshmallow, crumbled graham crackers
Elvis: peanut butter chips, banana slices, bacon strips (!!)
The Ballgame: caramel syrup, peanuts, buttered popcorn, cherry on top
Breakfast Sundae: frozen Greek yogurt, banana slices, your favorite cereal, peanut butter drizzle


Take advantage of school being out and spend some time with friends and family. Make it even better with some chocolate-vanilla swirl in an adorably wrapped cone! No mess!
