Make Stone Soup
Have each child bring in a vegetable. Wash a stone large enough that it will not get lost in the soup pot. Have children wash and chop the vegetables for the soup. Add vegetables to a large pot with enough water to cover all the ingredients; or add chicken broth (about 6 cans) or a mixture of water and chicken broth, or bouillon cubes and water, a little salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer until vegetables are done. Serve with bread or pita bread.
