Did you know, that you can make your own butter...in a JAR?
Simply add a couple of tablespoons of whipping cream to your empty baby food JAR.
Put the lid on! :-) Give it a shake for about 10 minutes or so.
Today, the kids are going to do that during the first part of my Laura Ingalls Wilder program!
After 10 minutes, take a look! You will see that a little lump of butter has formed in your JAR!
Since we aren't salting it or anything, it doesn't actually have much flavor, but it is very fresh and nice.
Okay...this has nothing to do with JARs, but I wanted to show you how nice your little bit of butter looks on a cracker. Yum yum!
Here are a bunch of JARs I have ready for the program. I hope the little pioneers enjoy themselves today! In addition to making butter, we are going to play some games, do some crafts, and have some snacks that we did not create ourselves. Wish us all luck.
I hope you have enjoyed my presentation of the theme - JAR. I cannot wait to see yours :-) For next week, I would like to tag one of my favorite bloggers. He has a great sense of humor and he's a delightful dad. So... take it away 3GirlKnight over at By God's Good Grace!
