July 19th is the very best holiday. Can you guess why? It's International Ice Cream Day, silly! Not that you (or I) need an excuse to eat ice cream all day, but any legitimate excuse is always welcome. International Ice Cream Day is also an excuse to print out this adorable and exclusive ice cream cone coloring page by children's book author and illustrator, Melanie Hope Greenberg.
Even better: this ice cream cone coloring page is calorie, sugar and fat free.
Not that calories, sugar and fat ever stopped you (i.e. me) from eating ice cream.
Encourage your kids to use whatever colors they want and invent flavors! Can they remember the last time they had a four-scoop cone? Maybe they will want to add toppings to each scoop! We cut up office supply stickers to create sprinkles, bubble gum balls and star-shaped candy.
After all, when you create your own ice cream cone, the sky's the limit!
