With a Moo Moo Here...

As part of our farm theme we learned about cows. We started by reading The Milk Makers by Gail Gibbons.

We sang the Making Butter Boogie while making our own butter. Download the poem here.

We each took turns shaking the whipping creme in a baby food jar.

When the butter was ready we ate it on bread while I read Click, Clack, Moo to the girls.

Then we read our cow poem chart and Julia illustrated her own copy of the poem. Feel free to download the cow poem and the child's copy of the poem.


  1. Thanks so much, these are awesome resources. And I LOVE the idea of making butter in baby food jars!

  2. too bad you don't live nearby, you could have come seen a dairy :)

    I have the best time reading your ideas.
