Yes, I always loved this with my kinders - we did this for the thanksgiving feast. They learned about the pilgrims and the natives, made vests out of brown grocery bags and decorated them. They shook the cream in baby food jars and then got to spread the butter on the dinner rolls. Lots of parents turned out for the class party.

Oh, herb butter! Delicious. I always forget to do that, but I only have dried herbs anyway. I think it's much better with fresh.
