As I was creating this ice cream cone patterns printable, the ice cream truck just happened to make its way through the neighborhood enticing all the children with the repetitive chimes. All the kids rushed to see what was making the magical music. And one of my daughters who happened to have a little bit of money couldn’t resist buying a treat for her and her sisters. Kids just love ice cream! So learning with ice cream is a great way to get their attention.
