I always found this a fun project to do with kids. I liked it for the kids who had too much energy, you can have them hop and jump to music. I found if you want salted butter you should salt after it is butter or it takes longer.
While I think making butter is something every child should get to do once in a while; I cannot imagine that it is economical in the US right now. As I recall, we got only a few tablespoons of butter from a half pint of cream, making the butter about 8 dollars (or more) per pound.
If you have an inexpensive source for cream, you might do better!
