Teacher Stuff: Creative Thanksgiving Recipes by Children

Sister JulieAnn Sheahan

November 21, 2018

Tis the season for Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity Sister Kathleen Murphy’s annual recipe book project. Since she has both PreK and K children at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School in Greenwood, Mississippi, Sister ventured into pumpkin pie recipes and turkey recipes this Thanksgiving. Hope they bring you a smile. Feel free to share with someone else who needs a chuckle.

Sample spoiler:

1. Get some pie mix from Big Star. It will cost $5. It will come in a bottle.
2. Bring it home and pour it all out and mix it with a cupful of sugar.
3. Get some white milk and dump in the whole bottleful.
4. Roll it out and put it in a pan and leave it there.
5. Go to the pumpkin patch and get a pumpkin that has been growing. Get one that is as big as a cantaloupe and it will cost $100.
6. Cut out a little piece and put it right in the pie.
7. Bake it and put the oven on 1. Keep it in there for 3 minutes.
8. You will know for sure that it is done, so you should come and get it out right away.


1. Buy a turkey at Walmart. Ask someone where the turkeys are and then go there.
2. Look for one that is tan.
3. Buy it and it will cost $5.
4. Take it back to the school.
5. You should wash it with a lot of hot water.
6. Put 1 spoonful of white powder inside and put 2 cups of white milk on top. The milk should be cold.
7. Put it in the oven and put the oven on 5. You should leave it there for 1 minute. You should check on it 6 times.
8. Open up the oven and see if it is hot. If it is hot then cut it in 9 pieces. That’s all.

May the Lord bless you and all who share your life today and every day!
