How to Make an Apple Pie

Two weeks ago we rowed How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World by Marjorie Priceman. Buzz, especially, really enjoyed this  book.
They colored flags for each country that the girl visited in the story (from here)

We watched an episode of Reading Rainbow where we learned about milking cows and what can be made from milk. Boo loved this and decided she would love to milk a cow. Buzz thought that touching a cow would be gross :)

We made our own butter by pouring heavy cream in a tupperware container and shaking for a LONG, LONG time. I ended up doing most of the shaking.
Of course we finished off our week by making our own apple pie. It may not have been the prettiest pie ever, but it was yummy!
