Thanksgiving Party Ideas!

If your social media is flooded with red Starbucks cups and your senses are overwhelmed with minty evergreen and cinnamon scents, don’t be alarmed, it means the holidays are officially here! Hosting Thanksgiving this year? Here are a few fun game ideas, so you can share the memories at the next family gathering!  

  1. Shake your tailfeather!

You may also know this game as the tissue box game, but we added a Thanksgiving flare. Empty a tissue box for each player and replace the tissues with craft feathers. Tape a pair of pantyhose or thick ribbon onto each box so the box is in the middle of the pantyhose. To play, give each player a box tied with pantyhose and have them tie the pantyhose around their waist so the tissue box is on their backside. Players must move around and shake, shake, shake until all of the feathers fall out of their tissue box. First person to empty out all the feathers wins!

  1. Feast or Football

Give each player mini footballs and line up a bunch of large pots and pans, on the other side of the room, all at varying lengths. Dishes toward the back of the room are worth 7 points, dishes in the middle are worth 3, and dishes closest to the players are worth 1 point. Players have one minute to throw the footballs into the dishes, scoring as many points as possible . Or have teams play simultaneously by using different colored footballs, and see who can get to 21 points first. 

  1. Thanksgiving dinner

This is great game which tests your memory and requires very little physical activity, perfect for the post-meal recovery! Everyone gets together and sits in a circle. The first person starts off by saying “At Thanksgiving I like to eat turkey.” Then the next person says the same thing but adds another dish. This continues all the way around the circle with each person reciting the dishes in the exact order they have been given and then adding a new one. If a player makes a mistake they slide out of the circle and the game continues. The person left who can perfectly recite the Thanksgiving menu wins.

We hope these games spice up your Thanksgiving party! Stay tuned for next week’s blog 🙂
