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! Quiz each other with some tricky Thanksgiving Riddles. Decorate your table with some Would You Rather Thanksgiving prompts. Or play a few Thanksgiving Minute to Win It Games!

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