One of the many blessings that I have, is a whole troop of little people in my family. My young siblings, my cousin's kids (who are almost like nieces and nephews), will be joining us tomorrow for Thanksgiving Dinner. I've been working on a few games to keep them entertained while the adults enjoy coffee and pumpkin pie, and I thought I would share a few of them with ya'll in case you also have young'uns attending your festivities.
1) Thankful BirdieThis one is pretty easy and so it will work for kids old enough to talk, up to the eldest of us. All you have to do is get a badminton birdie and draw a turkey face on it. The kids sit in a circle, duck-duck-goose style. You toss the birdie to one kid, they will say one thing they are thankful for, then toss it to someone else. Each child says something they are thankful for before tossing it to someone else.
Speaking of duck-duck-goose, you can also play Duck-Duck-Turkey. ;)
