One of my favorite games ever is charades! It’s so simple and I can’t help but laugh whenever I play. Even the family members who start out a little nervous with the spotlight end up breaking out and having a blast.

My kids loved Halloween Charades, so I decided to keep the fun going for Thanksgiving this year. If you want to take this year’s celebration up a notch, you have got to add Thanksgiving Charades to your list!

With 200 of these Thanksgiving Charade ideas, your family can play all night! 

Making Your Thanksgiving Special

Thanksgiving always seems to be all about the food, and believe me, I’m okay with that! But don’t forget to be ready with some great activities too! 

While the kids are waiting for food, send them on a themed Thanksgiving Scavenger hunt! Try out a game of Thanksgiving Bingo and see if it’s a new family favorite! Decorate your table with some Would You Rather Thanksgiving prompts. 

Of course, at the top of your list has got to be Thanksgiving Charades!

Your first step is to scroll down and download my printable with some great ready-to-use word cards full of charade ideas. 

Once you have your cards ready, you are all set to play. Split into two teams and take turns reading a card and acting it out to your team. If your team guesses the word on the card before a one-minute timer goes off, you get a point!
