Have the children shell peanuts. Younger children may
need to have their peanuts pre-cracked. Depending on how much
peanut butter you want to make and how prolific the shellers
are, the teacher may have to pitch in and shell some also.
Save the shells.
While the shelling is going on, sing some peanut songs:
The peanut sat on the railroad track
Her heart was all a flutter.
The nine fifteen came speeding by
And now she's peanut butter.
Look away, toot toot
Look away, toot toot
Look away, my fair young friend
For I'm going to Louisiana for to see my fair Susannah
Singing polly wolly doodle all the day.
To the tune of "I'm A Little Teapot"
I'm a little peanut, brown and round
To get me open, you have to pound
When I crack open you can say
"Hello, Mr. Peanut, how are you today."
If you are lucky enough to have a food grinder, as the
peanuts are being shelled, they can be ground. Have the kids
turn the crank. Here's another song to sing:
Crunch, crunch, crunch the nuts
Watch them turn to moosh.
Slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
Give the crank a push.
Add just enough oil to the ground peanuts to obtain a
"spreadable" consistency. Add a little salt, if desired.
Spread peanut butter on crackers and eat!
Using an electric blender isn't nearly as much fun, but
is better than nothing. Place all the peanuts in the blender
and turn on. Add enough oil and salt (if desired) to obtain a
"spreadable" consistency. Spread on crackers and eat!
Add the peanut shells to your collage collection.
