For this Thanksgiving Holiday, we want you to be able to have a little fun! Wheather you are with one or two people, or a house full of family, here are a few fun games & activities to do while you are together.
1. Guess how many candy corn....?
This is a fun game to do with adults as well as kinds. It's also fun when there's a little gift involved.... ;)
Grab a jar and fill it with the exact number of candy corn you want people to guess.
Put the number aside.
Take a piece of paper and create a line for each family member.
Have your family come throughout the day to fill out their name and the number they guess (some may shake the bowl, look closely, etc.
At the end of the day, call up the family member that won!
Having a gift for them at the end is always a fun way to add some competition.
2. Thanksgiving Charades
If you want to get on your feet and have some fun, Thanksgiving Charades is for you!
Cut out Thanksgiving themed characters and put them in a bowl of your choice.
Create teams depending on how many are in your family.
Choose a designated score keeper.
Sit with your team on separate sides of the room.
One player you chose will go first from one of the teams.
That player will grab a clue paper (make sure the clues are folded tight so no one can see what they are choosing!) and pull out a clue to act out.
Set a time limit of 1 minute.
The player will use that time to act out their clue.
The other players on their team try to guess the word or phrase.
Their team can shout out answers they think are correct until they (hopefully) guess the right answer.
If the team guesses the clue within the time limit their team gets a point.
If they have not gotten the right answer within the time limit the other team has one chance to answer. If the opposing team guesses correctly they get a point.

3. M & M Thanksgiving Gratitude Game
It wouldn't be Thanksgiving if we didn't say what we are grateful for, right?
Grab 1 bag of M & M's.
Go around the Dinner table or in a circle and answer the questions on this page.
Each member will choose 5 M & M's from the bag when it is their turn.
Once they have their colors, they will follow the chart and answer the questions out loud to those in the room.
This will continue until all members have had a chance to grab M&M's and speak.
Caution: This game might cause you to get a little close, and that's the point!
4. Turkey Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
Oreo Turkey Cookies? Yes please!
Enjoy a fun snack with no baking involved (woop-woop)
Open an Oreo cookie in half.
Pour some melted chocolate on one side.
Stick a few candy corns.
Place the other cookie on top and stick it together.
Decorate the turkey face with candy corns and eyeball candies.
We hope you enjoy this Thanksgiving Holiday!
We love you
