What to do on the 3rd day of being snowed in with the kiddies? Make butter of course! I mentioned before we've been reading the "Snipp, Snapp and Snurr" books. Well one of them is "Snipp, Snapp and Snurr and The Buttered Bread". It is really so sweet. The three little boys in the book go to visit their Aunt Annie to get some fresh milk from her cow, Blossom, to make butter. Problem is that poor Blossom has only been eating old hay, so she's not making any milk. She needs fresh green grass! The boys talk the sun into shining again, the grass grows, Blossom makes milk, the boys get their buttered bread and all is well in Sweden :) It really is very simple and quite delicious and makes for a good snowy day something to do.
