4 Interesting Uses for Ice-Cream Scoops

Scoop meatballs and cookie dough
If you want uniform-size meatballs every time, use an ice-cream scoop to measure out the perfect orbs. This method works well for cookies too. Dip the scoop in the dough, and plop the ball on the cookie sheet. You’ll end up with cookies all the same size — no tiffs over which one is the largest.

Make butter balls
At your next large family gathering, scoop out large globes of butter or margarine to serve to your guests. A smaller scoop, or melon baller, can create individual-size balls of butter.

Create sand castles
On your next trip to the beach, throw an ice-cream scoop into your bag. Your kids will have a fun tool for making their sand castles down by the shore. The scoop allows them to make interesting rounded shapes with the sand.

Plant seeds
If you’re out in the garden faced with a plot of earth that needs seeding, turn to your kitchen drawer for help. An ice-cream scoop will make equal-sized planting holes for the seeds.

Repot a houseplant
Does dirt scatter everywhere when you are repotting your house-plants? An ice-cream scoop is the perfect way to add soil to the new pot without making a mess.
