Winner gets an extra slice of pie! 😉
After lots of prep work, Thanksgiving Day is finally here. But while the turkey's in the oven and you're whipping up your famous pecan pie recipe, your kids are bound to get a little restless—which is why we put together this handy list of Thanksgiving games. With options ranging from handwritten Mad Libs to a simple "pumpkin toss" and even a fun turkey bowling game, both kids and adults will want to get in on the fun. But it's the hostess who'll be most pleased with our selections: Each and every one of the games we've rounded up here is low on mess and easy to clean up.
Still, with all the other excitement surrounding this hectic holiday, why should you take time out of the day to play a fun Thanksgiving game for kids? Well, Thanksgiving family games are an excellent way to bond with your children and encourage them to stay active. What's more, simple activities like "Pin the Feather on the Turkey" will keep them out of the kitchen—and out of your hair for a bit. But most importantly, these games will give your youngest guests something to smile and laugh about as they make memories they'll cherish for years to come. And in the end, that's what Thanksgiving's really about.
