Tuesday Recipe: A Turkey For The Turkey

Each Tuesday we'll bring you a tasty recipe or craft recipe to make with your kids!

This week's recipe is...

A Turkey For The Turkey

Small brown paper bag
1 ziplock bag
1 cup of rice
Yellow construction paper
2 wiggly eyes
Orange construction paper
Red construction paper
Small square with the recipe printed
1 small rubberband

Print the recipe for "GOBBLE-GOOD TURKEY CASSEROLE" on a small square piece of paper. It is as follows:

1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 package onion soup mix
1 cup rice (provided inside turkey)
1-1/2 cups milk
2 or 3 cups leftover turkey

Combine all ingredients in a large casserole dish. Bake covered 45 min. at 350 degrees. Gobble up!

Next make the paper sack turkey. Put the cup of rice in the ziplock bag and insert into the paper sack. This will be for the receiver of this turkey to use in their recipe. The paper sack will be the turkey's body. Bunch the middle of the papersack together and wrap the rubber band around the middle. This will give you 2 sections to the turkey. You will cut long slits on the open end of the sack. The slits need to be close together. This will create the feathers for the rear of your turkey.

The actual bottom of what use to be the paper sack is now going to be the front of your turkey. This is where you will need to glue your turkey's head that you cut out of yellow construction paper. The top of the head needs to stick up over the sack about 2 inches. Then cut out the diamond shape out of orange paper to glue on the beak. Next glue on the wiggly eyes. Finally you need to add the wattle by cutting out a thin rectangle out of the red construction paper and curling it with your scissors. Glue this directly under the beak.

Now that your turkey's face is complete you need to cut out 2 cute turkey feet to glue on the bottom of your turkey so they stick out a little from under the paper sack. Finally you glue on the "GOBBLE-GOOD TURKEY CASSEROLE" recipe right under the chin of the turkey. You're finished! Enjoy!
