Colourful Meal-Soup

To Give or Keep for Yourself




  • Ingredients for the recipe (enough for all children)
  • 1 Mason jar per child



  1. Place all the ingredients and Mason jars on the table.
  2. Ask the children to fill the jars by following the recipe.
  3. If the children are younger, you could make it easier for them by measuring the spices in advance (they only need to add the pre-measured spices).
  4. Print the recipes on the computer, the children just attach the labels to their jar.
  5. Tell them they’re making lentil soup like Esau.
