Thanksgiving Games

Thanksgiving family games are an excellent way to bond with your children and encourage them to stay active.

Gratitude Game

Since Thanksgiving is the perfect time to reflect on what you’re most grateful for, this gratitude game is right on theme. This twist on pick-up sticks can be recreated with your choice of each category.

Guess How Many?

Place a glass jar or vase filled with candy corn in the center of the kids’ table, then let your littlest guests jot down how many candies they think the container holds. The “winner” is whichever child guesses closest to the actual number. This one’s sure to foster conversation and keep them entertained throughout the night.
