Creating a root beer float kit is simple!  You can include any variety of items in the kit – here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Download the free printable root beer kit labels.
  • 6-pack of Root Beer in glass beverage bottles
  • Glassware – I scored these perfect mugs from the thrift store – be creative when you’re shopping for supplies!
  • Ice cream scoop
  • basket or tray for wrapping
  • Paper Straws or straws in a fun color!
  • Spoons
  • Ice cream recipe book – I love love love the Ben & Jerry’s book pictured!
  • Ice cream maker 
  • Gift Certificate to a local ice cream shop
  • napkins
  • other fun snack items like peanuts or cracker jacks

Once you’ve collected all the items you’d like to include in your Root Beer Float Kit, begin arranging them in a basket or on a tray for gift-giving.  To apply the labels to the root beer bottles, print them out on sticker paper, cut around each label, peel from the backing, and carefully smooth the sticker right over the existing beverage label.  It couldn’t be easier!  If you don’t have sticker paper available, you can print onto regular cardstock and simply tape each side of the label onto the bottle.  Use raffia or ribbon to “wrap” the ensemble.  Think about personalizing the gift by including items that are meaningful to your special dad – his favorite brand of ice cream, mugs with his Alma Mater, a special card or notes from the kids.
