I Can't Believe It's Butter!

The older boys and the younger kids are studying 1800's American History this year. I've been reading Little House on the Prairie to the younger kids and we decided to make butter.


First, take a little cream......


Then, take a jar with a lid. We didn't have a glass jar, but we did have Daddy's hunting thermos.....


After you shake, shake, shake.........


Yummy, creamy, butter!




They like it!

Really?? It's that simple? Definitely have to try that here. Thanks for sharing!

We've done this before too, and the kids loved it! We used baby food jars so each child could have their own little serving.

Your kids might also enjoy making their own ice cream!! If I remember right, just put heavy cream in a ziploc. Fill another ziploc with ice and rock salt. Put the cream bag in the ice bag and shake, shake, shake.
