Making Butter by Hand in a Mason Jar

At King's Kids Preschool in Newark, California, they learned how to make butter by hand in a mason jar. It was a fun activity and the endless energy the children had resulted in making the butter being relatively easy considering all the jar-shaking they needed to do!

Materials needed for this activity

To make your own butter by hand in a mason jar you can follow these steps:

1. Fill your mason jar halfway with heavy cream and close the jar up.
