Games to Play on Thanksgiving

Welcome to November! The 935M Blog is here to help you prepare for the holidays. Embrace the spirit of Thanksgiving by gathering everyone together in your apartment to play these fun and fitting holiday games.

Thanksgiving Pictionary

Pictionary is a classic party game that has one person drawing something and their team guessing what it is. This Thanksgiving version is played just like the original, except using words that relate to the holiday like turkey, pilgrim, and feast. Make it interesting by adding Thanksgiving movie titles or even holiday experiences your guests remember.

Turkey Drawing Contest

Drawing a turkey is simple, right? Well, mix things up by adding a few conditions: everyone attempts to draw a turkey while balancing a book on their head with the paper they are drawing placed on top of the book, for example. If this sounds too complicated, blindfold each player who is drawing. Have someone judge the best turkey drawing. Sign your name at the bottom of your drawing and proudly display your artwork for everyone to see.

Turkey Waddle Relay

Team members must race back and forth to established start and finish points while holding an inflated balloon between their legs. You can’t use your hands to hold the balloon, and if you pop your balloon, you lose. You might want to video this one for some future laughs!

Gratitude Scavenger Hunt

Discover and take pictures with the things that you are grateful for in this fun Thanksgiving-themed scavenger hunt race. Come up with your own list or use this pre-made list courtesy of Let’s Get Together.

Turkey Trivia

Test your knowledge on turkeys, the origin of Thanksgiving, and more in some fun holiday trivia. Make it competitive by offering prizes to whoever gives the most correct answers. This game is fun even if you don’t know the answers because you get to learn some fun facts!
