So off the boy and I went to Michael's, found all sorts of turkey decorations, and pulled out the hot glue gun. Thankfully, I have a fair amount of skill with the hot glue gun and no feathers were harmed & no boys were burned in the making of this turkey.
For the writing portion, they were allowed to write anything they found interesting i.e.) the story of the first Thanksgiving turkey, a letter from a turkey saying not to eat him, how to make turkey soup, etc.
Ben chose how to make turkey soup, which I'm sure should have produced amusing results, except my kid cooks a lot and wants to be a chef when he grows up.
Ben's Turkey Soup:
- Get one whole turkey.
- Boil some water on the stove.
- Add some salt and pepper.
- Cut the turkey.
- Put the turkey in the water, take out the bones first.
- Set a timer for five hours and cook.
- Serve the soup.
Yep, that's my little future chef, he is getting the general idea!
