It’s officially spring and many families will soon be traveling on spring break vacations. Not leaving town? No worries! We have soups from around the world that will help your family explore seven different cultures — all from your kitchen!

Soup has to sit on the stove for a while, so here is a fun activity to do with your family. This Soup Restaurant game is a great way for kids to stretch their imaginations, come up with new ideas, think about recipe writing, and maybe even try out their recipes.

Here’s how to play: Pretend you own a soup restaurant. Make a menu listing the different kinds of soups you have with a description of each soup. You can also make a section with different topping options. Draw pictures of the ingredients in each soup. Come up with fun names for your soups, the toppings, and, of course, the restaurant itself.
