making butter at home is a very simple process - there are many many ways to do it.

I use a stand mixer with a whisk and heavy cream from the supermarket.

put the cream in a bowl, whip slowly at first until it froths, then increase speed until you get butter.

you will see the cream go to whip cream, then over beaten, then grainy, then lumpy and now you have to be careful because as the butter 'falls out' of the cream you're left with the watery whey aka (real) buttermilk and if you don't slow the mixer down it spatters all over.

there a zillions of videos etc.
here's one

That is a great thing to make with kids. For some reason it amazes kids that you can make certain things at home and butter seems to be one of those things!

When I was in third grade, we made butter. Our teacher put cream in a jar, and we all took turns shaking it until it turned to butter. Then we ate it on crackers. Of course, then we had to write about our "experiment".

I had a South African boy friend who didn't believe that you could make butter at home, so we did. He was completely boggled that it worked.

I did that with my girl scouts. They each had to bring an empty jar that could hold a pint minimum and another one for the buttermilk. The troop provided the salt. They got to take the butter home much to the surprise of their parents. And with the buttermilk, a recipe for buttermilk biscuits and/or pancakes went home also. The only drawback was they didn't want to share "their" butter with their siblings. Parents were okay, but not the other kids in the family.
