Puzzles are great Thanksgiving activities to set out for guests who are enjoying an extended holiday at your house — they can casually work on it by themselves or with others a little each day, until the picture is complete!
This 1,000-piece puzzle depicts a colorful U.S. map, making it fun to piece together with the jet-setters in your group.
Before you get called in for dinner, toss around this classic regulation-sized football with the other guests at your Turkey Day get-together. You'll love this football's easy-to-grip, scuff-resistant exterior. Plus, you'll get use out of it for years to come.
When everyone is overstuffed from feasting on the turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes, this is the perfect game to play until dessert is served.
Family members of all ages can stay seated around the dining table or move the party over to the living room to play some good ol' Thanksgiving bingo. The holiday host should plan to have some fun prizes lined up. Stock up on these cards and make it a family tradition ...
You know there will be plenty of extra whipped cream left over on Thanksgiving, so why not put it to good use? Be sure to keep the paper towels on hand for this silly game of chance. Each player turns the handles of the pie-thrower, passing it back and forth until one unlucky person gets a pile of whipped cream (or a wet sponge) in the face.
This word search is perfect to have hanging out on the coffee table during the Thanksgiving festivities. The large print makes it possible for Grandpa to conquer a few puzzles along with the little ones!
This card game was a massive success when it was initially on Kickstarter, and the Russian roulette-style concept makes for exciting play. This family-friendly version of Exploding Kittens is super fast-paced and great for pre-teens. Each card features ridiculously adorable artwork from web-comic illustrator Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal.
Telephone meets Pictionary in this hilarious group game, which only gets funnier as the food coma (or spiked cider) sets in. Each player starts with a wipe-off sketchbook and a secret word to draw, and they must pass their sketchbook to get everyone else's pictorial guess, just based on their drawing. Get ready for some belly laughs this Thanksgiving holiday.
It's every family member for themselves with this tabletop classic. Stack the hardwood Jenga blocks into a tower, and then see how much taller you can build it by pulling various pieces out to re-stack on the top — before the whole thing topples.
If your household is extra-chaotic during the holidays, eliminate the need for any playing-piece clean-up with this electronic game of Catch Phrase. As the timer ticks, pass the device back and forth between teams, trying to have your teammates guess the phrase shown — without saying it by accident! Teams score depending on who's holding the disc when the timer buzzes.
If you're the guest at this year's Thanksgiving feast, come prepared with this little yellow banana bag to ensure that there's never a dull moment! This fast-paced game doesn't confine your intersecting wordplay to a board — use the whole dining table as a gaming surface once the dishes have been cleared.
Perfect for a lively Friendsgiving, everyone's a winner in this game of superlatives. These quirky cards are all about getting to know your gaming partners a little bit better — assign silly or dubious distinctions to the other players while they try to defend themselves.
When there are still 15 minutes left on the turkey, anticipation can run high. Channel that excitement into a rousing game of Heads Up! All you need is your phone, and no one even has to get up from the table to play. Hold the device to your forehead, while players give you clues as to the word, name, or title that's displayed on the screen.
Don't forget to pin these fun games for the whole family to play this Thanksgiving!
