Last year, many of us were unable to see family for the holidays, or at least not in the same capacity that we would have liked to. This year, we want to help you make your Thanksgiving gathering extra special by suggesting some activities that will bring the whole family together to celebrate what they are thankful for.

Friendly Family Cook-Off

We know you have a family recipe near and dear to your heart. You probably think you have the best iteration of it as well. Your son, daughter, nephew, or cousins probably think they have the best dish as well. We think a great way to bring all your guests together would be through a good old-fashioned cook-off. Have everyone that cooks something bring the best version of their dish, then have all the non-cookers be your blind judges. This is a sure-fire way to get everyone involved in the festivities. Just make sure you don’t let your competitiveness get in the way of a good time!

Break Out the Arts & Crafts

Arts and crafts can be a great way to keep everyone entertained, especially if you will have kids at your Thanksgiving celebration. There are endless opportunities for things you can create, and thankfully, most of them are quite simple. An easy activity that most kids love is creating a turkey out of common household items. You can, of course, have them trace around their hand, and then draw on the turkey’s features. If you would rather dive more into the craft’s side, you can create turkeys out of toilet paper rolls and use some colorful paper as the feathers. 

If you are looking for something that can get the whole party involved, then creating a thankful tree could be a fantastic solution. All you will need for this activity is a bucket, jar, or bowl of some kind to act as the base. You can then either use real sticks as the tree limbs or craft your own out of some of the paper you will be using for the leaves. Once you have gathered all the materials, the actual craft is quite simple and fun. Everyone will write something or someone they are grateful for on a leaf, and then they will attach it to one of the limbs. By the end of the activity, you will have a luscious tree full of beautiful sentiments that also doubles as a festive decoration!

Who’s Got Bingo?

For this activity, you can either play traditional bingo with a selection of fun and goofy prizes or, if you are feeling more festive, you can replace the numbers with cards that have Thanksgiving-related items on them. Your prizes can be separate gifts or something like the first person to get bingo gets the first go at all the desserts. Feel free to interject this idea with any fun family traditions you may already have for the holiday.

It’s Trivia Time

Who doesn’t love flexing their knowledge of random trivia? Late nights of watching Jeopardy are bound to pay off eventually. For this activity , you can make it as elaborate or as simple as you like. Someone in your party with the most vibrant personality can be the host. There are plenty of free trivia games that you can print off online. You can spend countless hours finding out which guest has all the Thanksgiving knowledge. Maybe they can get an extra slice of pie! 

Are You Ready for Some Football?

Whether or not you are a fan of football, there is a good chance that it will at the very least be on in the background with a few attendees more interested in the game than in the party. One way to satisfy the needs of both groups is to do an activity that involves football. If you have some art fanatics at your party, then you can look into making your very own football jersey. You could even make a family team jersey that everyone can wear at next year’s Thanksgiving. The material does not need to be that of a real jersey; rather, you can use old plain t-shirts as the jerseys. Now you just need to decide on the colors and logo your family team will have, and then everyone can make their own jersey and watch the game. We hope you have a great time with friends and family this year. Happy Thanksgiving!
