Bird, Beast or Fish
Supplies: Quick thinking
You have to think fast for this game. Everyone sits facing towards the leader. The leader points to one of the players and says either "BIRD," "BEAST," or "FISH."
The chosen player must then come up with the name of an animal that fits the category before the leader counts to ten. No repeating used answers! If the player does not respond in time, they are out of the game.
The game continues until only one player remains and that player become the new leader. As you can guess, after a few rounds it can be hard to think of an animal that has not already been mentioned!
Thanksgiving Memory Game
Supplies: Good memory and knowledge of food
The players sit in a circle. The first player starts by saying, "At Thanksgiving dinner I ate turkey." The next player must repeat this and add another dish, "At my Thanksgiving dinner I ate turkey and cranberry." The third player must repeat it and add yet another dish, "At Thanksgiving dinner I ate turkey, cranberry, and stuffing."
The game continues with each player adding an item to the menu after first listing all the previous items in the exact order they were first said. If a player makes a mistake they are out of the game and the next person goes. The game continues until there is just one person left.
Supplies: Research Thanksgiving trivia, paper and pens
Here is one that the whole family can enjoy after the big Thanksgiving meal. In a piece of paper write down several questions regarding the history behind Thanksgiving and 4 possible answers, but only one is correct. For example, one of the questions could be: - From the following foods which one was not likely to be at the pilgrims table? a) Corn b) Potatos c)Yams d) Beans Answer is b, potatoes
And whoever guesses the most answers from the quiz gets a box of chocolates or any other prize. Of course whoever is preparing the game has to do a little bit of research, but you can find the info easily on the net or the library. Thanks Ruth
