Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?

Today for Dr. Seuss Day at school, the classes traded teachers for about 30 minutes for reading. The teachers were to read a Dr. Seuss story and do an activity. Here is the activity my daughter did with the book Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?.

Fill baby food jars half full of whipping cream and screw the lids on tightly. Let kids take turns shaking each jar. After about 5 minutes the cream will be whipped, and after another min or so, lumps of yellow butter will form. Rinse off the liquid whey and add a little salt, if desired. Then spread on crackers to taste!

While reading the book, pass around a jar (or several) and have the kids take turns shaking it. The ingredients should already be in the jar. When the story is over, you should have homemade butter. Try spreading the butter on crackers or bread and enjoy.
