North Pole Floats- what a hit!

We recently made North Pole Floats (a great idea from Chalk Talk's Polar Express unit). 

My kids really enjoyed sipping these while completing their Polar Express activities. All you need for this sweet treat is 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream and 1/2 cup ginger ale. My kids lightly sprinkled red and green sugar crystals on top and then added a candy cane. The candy cane will dissolve in the shake rather quickly giving it some extra flavoring. One of my sons used a peppermint candy cane but my other son wanted the cherry flavored candy cane. These floats were a big hit!
