Ice Cream Football

THE CHALLENGE: Make ice cream without a freezer


  • 2 (1-quart) zip-top bags
  • 2 (1-gallon) zip-top bags
  • 1 (8-pound) bag of ice, crushed or in cubes
  • 1/2 cup rock salt
  • Newspaper
  • Heavy-duty tape


  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

You need milk, cream and sugar to make ice cream, plus rock salt and lots of ice. As long as the ingredients keep moving and stay cold enough, the mixture will turn into ice cream.

The Scouts measured the ingredients into a quart-size zip-top bag, and squeezed out all the air and sealed the bag. They placed this bag inside the other quart bag and sealed it. Then they put this double-bagged ice cream mix inside a gallon zip-top bag.

They then filled the gallon-size bag with ice, sprinkled the ice with rock salt and sealed the bag. They placed this bag inside the other gallon bag and sealed it again.

Now for the football part.

The Scouts wrapped the bags in layers of newspaper and secured the bundle with duct tape. The resulting “football” was ready for about 20 minutes of passing — to keep the mixture moving — before being spiked into the ice chest.

THE RESULT: The ice cream was cold and delicious.
