Turkey Soup– Make turkeys from lunch sacks by drawing lines from the top to the middle of the bag as shown. Have children paint or color the stripes. Cut on the lines to make tail feathers. Fill a zip baggie with 1 cup rice. Put it in the bottom of the lunch sack. Tie string around the middle of the bag to make the body. Add a head and dangly feet. Attach the recipe for turkey and rice soup and send home for a table decoration.
