How to Cook a Turkey- From the Mouths of Three Year Olds

For Thanksgiving, my son's teacher asked each kid, "How do you cook a turkey?" Here are their responses:

Lauren - Go to the store, go to the aisle. Turn in and then you're there. Find a turkey. Bring it at your house. Mix it up with water. Cook it in the microwave for 200. Serve it with strawberries.

Logan - Go to the toy store. Put chicken nuggets and macaroni on the turkey. When the turkey pops out put it in the oven. Cook it for 15 minutes, then 16 minutes again. Then take it out of the oven. Put it back in the oven for 100 minutes. Take it out of the oven, put a fork in it and eat it.

Joseph - Buy a turkey at the kitchen store. Buy chicken nuggets, sandwich. Put meat on the turkey. Put it on the stove and burn it. Cut and eat with meat.

Rebecca - Buy a turkey at the farm. Put it in the oven for 10 minutes. Add rainbow sprinkles to make it be pretty. Serve it with orange.

Jake - Get a turkey from children. Cook it in a toaster for a long time. Turn it. Then it is done. Put it on a plate and eat it with a fork.

Rikhi - It's the farm. Add butter, bread and cheese. Cook it with a cooker. Cut it, make it, and put milk. Put it with salad.

Josh - Buy a turkey at the store. Grab it and put it in the shopping cart. You take watermelon and buy all kinds of things, peanuts.

Emily - Put spices on the turkey: cinnamon, pepper, brown spices. Put it in the oven for 50 minutes. You take it out and cut it into little pieces. Put it in the oven for five minutes. From cutting the turkey, put the crumbs into the garbage can, then put the cutting thing back where the knives are.

Sarah - Buy the turkey at the store. Make a sandwich out of it and put everything on it.

Lexi - I never made one! I would put soil on it, then I would put it in the oven. Cook it so long. Bring it to school and eat it.

Interestingly, the person at the turkey hotline gave roughly the same guidance as these three-year-olds. Something about rainbow sprinkles, watermelon, and crumbs. And it turned out delicious!

Hilarious! I like the kid who said to burn it. I suppose his parents don't cook well.

Just you wait. One of them is going to be a famous chef one day!

That's hilarious! Turkeys coated with everything from sprinkles to soil. Good thing three year olds aren't responsible for dinner! :)
