Kids Project – Making Butter


Need something for the kids to do on Thanksgiving?  While you’re busy prepping all the food, give them a jar to make their own butter.  It’s pretty simple and pretty fun!


Check it out!

What you need:

  • 1 small baby food jar per child
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream per child
  • Small pinch of salt (optional)


How to Do it:

Put the cream in the baby food jar with the salt.


Allow each child to shake, shake, shake – and shake come more!  It takes about 20 minutes for the butter to form.


Open the jar and there you have it!  Homemade butter!
