Ever wanted to make your own ice cream or just like setting things on fire in the microwave? You might love a birthday party at Mad Jack's Ice Cream Concoctions on Mildred.
Friday night, the littlest got to don a lab coat and with the help of Mad Jack himself, make her own custom gallon of ice cream. Lemon and raspberry with marshmallows and pink and blue sprinkles. Big sister got to help, too.
Our custom ice cream was all frozen and ready to go for the party yesterday afternoon. (You can order your own custom gallons, without a whole birthday party.) A Mad Jack's party includes 10 guests, a custom gallon of ice cream, 10 sets of mad scientist glasses, and lots of very messy science fun. When it's all over, Jack and his lab assistant mop everything up for you. Normally this costs $120 but we scored a gift certificate from a generous friend.
Some of the kids were a little uncomfortable playing in the gloopy concoctions and not being able to wash their hands right away, others just quietly set to licking it off their hands. I'll let you figure out which group my kids were in ;) After that, they played with some non-edible gack, which they got to take home with them, watched Jack set grapes on fire in the microwave ("don't try this at home unless your parents aren't watching") and finished it off with a round of "popcorn soap" just in time to wash hands.
Then we all ate my daughter's pastel ice cream, opened gifts, and went home, full of sugar, covered in frosting, and happy. Thanks Mad Jacks!
