Use ten water bottles decorated like turkeys as bowling pins and a ball to play a fun game of turkey bowling. Keep the water bottles from falling over too easily by filling them up halfway with water. Use googly eyes, card stock or colored construction paper, scissors, glue and colored craft feathers to decorate the water bottle pins.
Come up with a hilarious Thanksgiving-themed story with everyone’s suggestions to fill in the blanks. Be prepared for a completely ridiculous story or one that makes absolutely no sense at all. Make your own mad libs stories or use the pre-made and printable versions from My Sister’s Suitcase that you will find by clicking on the link above.
Put together an egg hunt just like you would for Easter, but call it a turkey egg hunt to make it sound more fitting for the holiday. Add a fun twist like you have to gobble like a turkey every time you find an egg! Make it a holiday tradition that everyone will enjoy.
Construct a teepee out of pencils, twigs, or chopsticks and a loop made from a paper cup or segment of a paper towel roll and take turns removing a stick without causing the whole teepee to come crashing down. This game is a good test of each player’s fine motor skills.
