kansas turns 149 today (and no, i did not stay up until midnight to post this…i usually do a bunch of posts and schedule them for later).
our kansas celebrations this week include making butter to eating zweiback brought by families. its such a simple process, i don’t know why i don’t do it more often.
we used fancy local cream that came in a glass bottle, poured it in another jar and shook, shook, shook.
suddenly you hear a thunk, thunk, thunk and you know the butter is flopping around in there!
we sang happy birthday by “candlelight” (thanks for the inspiration, tom!) and enjoyed our feast.
it’s been a cozy week.

Love it. And really is butter that simple? H
I am definitely going to be making some butter. It looks so easy and I’m sure they are just fascinated by this. Thanks so much.
I’m one of those idiots(?) who never write things down from year to year. I think it helps keep things fresh, but this post makes me want to slap my forehead. We used to make butter in class, but I’ve completely spaced it for a couple years. It’s easy, fun and AMAZING! Thank you so much for serving as my memory!
i can completely relate. completely.
glad to help out. : )
How do you get so many ideas for activities with your children, I really am very much in love with the way you work with the children, I want a peek in your head to see how the plans are tumbling around, so I cab see I’m not the only one with a tumbling head full of ideas!!!!!
