Making Butter

Today we made butter. Long ago before supermarkets, people made their own butter from cow's milk. They poured the cream into a big barrel and with a long wooden pole they mixed and mixed. This was called churning the butter. First we put the cream in the jars and then we shook the jar until it was a big blob of butter. We shook the jars to music (Shake it out by Taylor Swift). Some buttermilk came out of the butter. We spread the butter on bread and made fairy bread. We had so much fun!
