Stuff Your Turkey Day With Fun Thanksgiving Party Games
Ah Thanksgiving... the smell of your turkey roasting in the oven will have your guests drooling before they even step in your door, so why not engage them in some fun Thanksgiving party games to keep their stomachs in check till the bird is ready?alt

When choosing Thanksgiving party games, keep in mind that you'll want to pick games in which everyone can get involved. After all, Thanksgiving is a family event, and no one should be excluded from the fun. Of course, you might want to delegate one of your family members to the task of overseeing the pre-dinner games, so you can keep one foot in the kitchen and two eyes on the bird.

There are an unlimited number of Thanksgiving party games available online and offline, but here are just a few to get your Thanksgiving party planning off to a great start.
 
Turkey Bingo - This traditional game is easy for any age to play. If you have a lot of younger children attending, you may want to choose a picture style bingo rather than words, letters, or numbers. Bonus: If yours is the type of family that fights for the drumsticks, make that the prize for the bingo winner. If not, how about the first serving of dessert?

Who's Thankful for What? - Give each guest a piece of paper and ask him to write down something for which he is thankful. Tell him not to show anyone what he has written. Collect the papers and have one person read the notes aloud while the rest of the family guesses who wrote each thankful note. Play for a prize or bragging rights.

Family Trivia - Have someone in the family compile a list of little known facts about family members, and conduct a special family trivia competition by making up questions based on that list. If that sounds like too much work, try a traditional Thanksgiving trivia or football trivia. Anyone of them or a mixture is perfect for Thanksgiving Day.

Right Left Thanksgiving Game - Have your family sit in a circle and randomly pass out a few prizes. Read a story with several references to right and left in it while family members pass the prizes around the circle. Each time they hear the word "right", they need to pass the prize to the right of them, and each time they hear the word "left", they must pass it left. When the story is over, those holding the prizes get to keep them. If you'd like to give your family a little scare, send dish-washing opportunity coupons around the circle instead of prizes. Now that's a fair and exciting way to choose your post dinner clean-up crew.

Thanksgiving Pictionary - If you have a chalkboard or whiteboard available that's big enough for the whole family to see, Pictionary always goes over well. Create cards with one Thanksgiving related item per card, and have family members take turns drawing whatever item they pick out of a bowl while the rest of the family guesses what it is they are drawing. Play for fun, one family member at a time, or divide into teams and have a full out competition. If you have a huge family and can't find enough Thanksgiving-related words to go around, opt to add items you can be thankful for.

Now, let's EAT!!!
