Looking for some fun Thanksgiving games to play with your kids?! This Thanksgiving Pictionary Game is a great way to fire up imaginations and entertain all ages this holiday season!
Easy Thanksgiving Game
With Thanksgiving just a couple weeks away, I thought I’d share with you an easy craft and game idea that is perfect to entertain your Thanksgiving guests – Thanksgiving Pictionary! This cute activity uses a darling printable turkey with craft stick “feathers” that couldn’t be more festive and fun. Just grab a few simple items, and you’ll be on your way to hours of Thanksgiving entertainment!
We use this little game all season long, but we especially love it on Thanksgiving day! It’s a great way to keep the little ones entertained while dinner is waiting to be served. Gather all the kids and let them take turns choosing a stick and drawing on a fun chalkboard, whiteboard, notepad, etc. See who can guess what it is first!
