This ice cream truck has brought a lot of fun to our residents and allows us to celebrate special occasions in style!

We repurposed an Amazon indoor playhouse, adding a wooden trim around an electric scooter for mobility. A sheet of plywood creates a stable base with a cutout for the seat and steering wheel, ensuring a safe and comfortable ride. Driving it is a breeze!

Play ice cream truck music to add to the nostalgia and excitement.

The residents love it!

Can you tell me how you attached it to the wheelchair I would love to do this for my residents!! This is a fabulous idea I love it!

We used a sheet of plywood. We cut out around the seat and stirring wheel laid in over the scooter, attached the fabric to the plywood and the ice cream sits on the plywood.

I ordered this truck from Amazon. It is actually an indoor playhouse. After putting it together, our head of operations put a wood trim around an electric scooter. It was easy to drive. The elders loved it!
