It is hard to believe that it is almost Thanksgiving. As you know, Thanksgiving in my family means a lot of kids to entertain. If you are looking for a few quick and easy ideas to keep the kiddos entertained, then you are in luck. The below list of Fun Thanksgiving games can be played at home, school or church. In addition, they are all low cost or can be created for free.
The first five game can be found in my downloadable activity pack Rolling Through Thanksgiving with Kids. As a bouns, when you order it through my gumroad store, I will give you a free Pin the Tail on the Turkey Game.
1. Rolling to the Thanksgiving Feast – an fun, fast-paced dice game that children and adults are sure to love. This game requires the most preparation but the fun can still begin in under 5 minutes.
2. Rolling in Thankfulness – a activity sheet designed to help children identify different areas of their life they have to be thankful for.
3. The Roll a Turkey Game – can be played alone or as a group. Just roll the dice and color accordingly. Who will the the first to finish.
4. Thanksgiving Day Word Search – a Thanksgiving theme word search with two different ages levels (i.e., under 10 and over 10).
5. Thankful Square – played like a game of Sudoku but with pictures for children under 8 and word for children over 8.
6. Pin the feathers on the turkey – You can make a inexpensive version of this game or get one for free when you order my Rolling Through Thanksgiving with Kids activity pack through gumroad. However, if you would like the game by itself. You can order it here. (I also found a very expensive version of pin the hat on the turkey on amazon here).
7. The Mayflower Game – Is a great game for people who loves arts and crafts and games. Have everyone make a ship aka ‘The Mayflower’ they think will float and be fast! Then once done you can fill up one of the under the bed plastic storage containers with water and only by blowing on your boat see which boats float and make it to the other side first. This can be fun pair people up too (one adult to one kid!). In the classroom, this is a great “Sink or Float” science experiment!
8. Name the Turkey! -We play this game every year. Every one submits names for the Turkey. You can then vote on a winner.
9. Gobble Gobble Mad Libs - can be ordered from Amazon and features 21 original stories all about the yummiest holiday--Thanksgiving! Featuring hilarious stories about preparing and eating dinner, Thanksgiving traditions, and Black Friday shopping, it's sure to keep kids laughing for hours. Gobble Gobble Mad Libs is 48 pages of fun.
Well that is all for now, please continue to pray for me and know I am praying for you.
