Butter in a jar & Melted Snowman

Friday was daddy's birthday and we wanted to make him pancakes but we wanted to make them extra special so we made our own butter and buttermilk! Let me tell you, if you've never made butter than you must! It was so fun and satisfying and I can honestly say I had more fun with it than Biggs did. If you want to make it just google "butter in a jar".  It was easy and a workout and I definitely will make it again in the future. Basically you take heavy whipping cream pour it in a jar with two marbles and shake it for 15 mins and you will have butter. The exciting part comes in watching the transformation and then being amazed that you and your toddler made something so darn useful! We buttered our pancakes with it and used the butter milk in the pancake mix they were delicious. I also finished using the butter in my german chocolate cake cupcakes! Yum!

Biggs is a pro at pouring! We measured 1 cup of cream.

Put it in the jar...

drop in the marbles...

shake? Really ma?  I get to shake this jar?!

Heck yeah!

This is when it got thick and I got to take over the shaking. Next time I might just put a little in a baby food jar so he can do the whole process.

Here it is, our butter about 1/2 cup and the butter milk. Sorry no pictures of the pancakes we were too busy eating!

 Today our project was a melted snowman which is quite fitting since it's warm and sunny where we live right now ;-(

I'm a little snowman
Short and fat
Here is my broomstick 
Here is my hat
When the sun comes out
I melt away...
Down, down, down, down,
I'm a puddle!
