Photo Gallery, Story: Kindergarten students offer their ideas on how to make Thanksgiving dinner.


NEW CASTLE — Jennifer Hileman

Jacob Clouse — Cook it on the stove at 19 degrees for 20 hours and when it’s done, eat it.

Valerie Hauser — Put it in the oven with chicken nuggets. Serve with mashed potatoes and corn.

Abigail Richards — Draw your hand, put one eye on and legs.

Macey Cwynar — Ask a grown-up.

Christopher Johns — Hurry up and grab him. Kill him with a gun. Put him in the oven. Cook him on hot. Take him out when oven beeps and hope he is done.

Makenzie Kildoo — My Daddy puts it in the oven. He makes us yummy pumpkin pie. We eat lots of deviled eggs. We spread peanut butter or cheese on celery. I like to help my Daddy set and enjoy our yummy food.

Elijah Paraska — Put butter and parmesan then BBQ on it. Stuff it with Goldfish then put it in the oven for a half an hour and 50 minutes.

Caliann Snyder — Get a turkey. Bake it. Stuff it. Eat it.

Reid Ketzel — Put the turkey in a big pan and put it in the oven at 10 degrees. Cook it for at least one hour. Then you take it out of the oven and cut it up and eat it with stuffing.

Morgan Barker — Shoot it, then take it home, cut it, stuff it and put it in the oven. Cook it for 10 minutes, take it out and put it on the table.

Sarah Fedrizzi — Put it on the grill for 17 minutes. You can add salt, pepper and butter for it to taste good.

Kailee Hall — You kill it first and then you put it in the oven. Then you cut it up and that’s how you make a turkey.

Molly Sue Pelligrene — First we give the turkey a bath. Mommy makes the stuffing. We stuff the turkey and put him in the roaster. Daddy puts on his special spices and puts the turkey in the fridge. We wake up really early to start cooking the turkey.

Taylin Smith — Cook it first. Add seasonings. Add salads. Add vegetables.

Tyler Shearer — Pull off the feathers after we shoot one outside. Chop off its head and legs. Stuff it with stuffing. Put it in a bowl and put it in the oven and cook it for 85 minutes. After it dings and you take it out, cut it up, take out the bones and it’s ready to eat.
