Top 10 Thanksgiving Activities & Traditions for Families

Every year millions of families celebrate Thanksgiving.  

It crosses religions, races, borders, and even Zoom calls...

Despite all the changes of 2020, it seems like an excellent opportunity to find new ways to connect with loved ones, grow traditions, and as always, keep kids occupied! 

So from across the depths of the internet, here is a list of the top 10 Thanksgiving activities.

1: Thanksgiving Bingo

Priority Number #1 – Keep the kids occupied throughout the day with a go-to activity.  All-day long, as their focus changes, you’ll be the hero with “Hey Susie, can you check off any squares on your bingo sheet?”

From the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade to the dinner itself, the kids can use this all day.  

And what about adults?  They can use it too; Loser does the dishes!

2. Thanksgiving Trivia

Trivia can be fun for all and can be an event during the day or an ongoing topic.  

It’s also great for diverting conversations away from such calm topics as politics and religion…

3. Who’s the Baby!?

Go digging in your family photo albums or ask guests to email you a photo of themselves as babies beforehand. Attach them to a board with numbers and then have everyone write down their guesses for each.

4.Ugly Thanksgiving Sweater Contest

Why give Christmas and Hanukkah all the ugly sweater glory? 

5.Thanksgiving Corn Hole

This game is not only a classic but great for kids and adults alike.  And bonus, it can be played indoors if you have a space large enough like a garage or living room, or you can even buy mini cornhole boards!

6. Turkey Talents Scavenger Hunt

This is especially helpful for that overstuffed bird feeling after dinner.  Let people burn off some calories while pursuing the hunt.

7.Mini pumpkin hunt

Who says Easter should be the only hunt of the year?  Hide some mini pumpkins and gords (or even a few brews for the parents) and let everyone hunt them down.  Winner gets their own pumpkin pie with extra whipped cream!

8.Thanksgiving Bowling

Head to your local garden center or home supply store and pick up some hay bales to make lanes, order some bowling pins online, and you can even use small pumpkins as the balls or a basketball you already have at home!

9. Family Tree Time!

Hows that family tree coming?  This is an excellent way for adults to bring up fond memories of loved ones past and reconnect with ones still living.  For kids, they can sit down and color their own family trees as a way to keep them busy and something they can hang in their room, or an update to the refrigerator art show…

10.Thanksgiving Movie Marathon

This one is perfect for post Thanksgiving dinner.  The loser of the scavenger hunt can do the dishes, the tired can nap, and then ones left awake can watch a movie with a beverage of choice in hand; spiced cider, anyone?
