The whole family had a great time last Friday making butter! (I like doing my "experiments" on Fridays.) Dad even got in on the action. This is one of our books we use for Science, and where the activity for making butter came from :
|We poured the cream into a jar. (I read the directions a little more carefully AFTER we finished. We were supposed to use a larger glass jar. oops!)|
After Lots of shaking, we had a creamy type butter. The boys went ahead and tried that on crackers, loved it. (I've made that before when I taught preschool.) The directions in our book told us to add water 3 different times, pouring off excess liquid each time. I really thought we had ruined our yummy creamy butter, but--Alas solids! So exciting, truly!
