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


NEW CASTLE — Carrie Mason

Evan Stahlman — Make stuffing, mix the stuffing and put it in the turkey. Put turkey in the oven for seven hours. Take it out, cool it down, then you eat the turkey.

Brooklyn Kennedy — Take a chicken nugget, take the inside out and cook it. Put salt on it after removing any bones. That’s how I make it homemade — ready to eat. Add gravy, if you like it.

Mason Nail — Put marinade on it, put it in the oven, cover the pan. Check to see if it’s hot. Baste it, put back in oven, take it out, cut it up, eat it.

Chloe Buchowski — First you soak it in sugar and salt walter. Then pat it dry. Put on some seasoning. Then put it in the oven for four hours until it smells good!

Aiden DeLillo — Mommy puts it in the oven. It cooks for a very, very long time. We eat it.

R.J. Kissick — Hunt for a turkey, shoot turkey, take feathers off turkey, put in a pan. Cook it in the oven on medium heat for 10 hours. Then eat!

Aidan Fuchs — Get a dead turkey and cook it in the oven. I would put salt, pepper, sprinkles, flour and sugar on it. I would cook it for 20 minutes at 40 degrees.

Caiti Pedrick — Kill it. Don’t wash it. Stuff it with a chicken. Wrap it in bacon. Bake it for 15 minutes at 94 degrees.

Adyson Holliday — I stuff it then I cook it for 15 minutes.

Kali Hamilla — Put stuff on it to make it good, take out the yucky parts, and cook it.

Destiny Maitland — Put seasoning on the the turkey. Stuff the belly with stuffing. Cook turkey for 14 minutes. Enjoy!

Olivia Dunmire — Squeeze the juice out of it. Then you put it in the oven. After a long time, get it out of the oven. Then it’s done. Next, you wait for it to cool down. Next you cut it. Then the last important thing is that you eat it.

Mara Bartley — Put salt and pepper on the turkey with a little olive oil. Put on a couple spices. Then put the stuffing in. Cook in the crock pot for 90 minutes.

Butch Pennachio — The best way to make a turkey is homemade, the way my mama makes it. I love to eat turkey for Thanksgiving. We stuff our turkey and make it in the oven.

Makayla O’Donnell — Put it in the oven, let it bake. Squirt some turkey juice on it and bake it some more and then take it out and eat it.

Do you talk to yourself when you're alone?

Yes, but I’m basically just thinking out loud.
No, that would be weird.
I don’t know. Next time I’m alone, I’ll ask.
