As we careen wildly toward the looming End-of-School-Year, today I got to chaperone with a shit ton of these little Children’s House Montessori students. Happily, my charges were primarily ClaraJane and Victor who together are “like cousins.”
After chickens, eggs, chick’s, cows, pony, wild chipmunks and a barnyard cat comes the HAY RIDE (although vine to find out it’s actually *straw*).
Then after a tour of the potable (“kitchen”) garden, we make BUTTER!
Who knew it was so easy.
1) heavy cream in a closed jar
2) shake until it’s whipped cream
3) *keep* shaking until it suddenly separates into skim milk and butter!
4) spread butter on cracker
Then inside to brush and twirl real wool into yarn, and visit the sheep from whom it came, before bus ride home.
Thank you Friends of Tobin!
Thank you Children’s House!
