We’ve included a wide variety of phrases related to Thanksgiving and fall in general so everyone is sure to have a good time. 

To get started, simply download the fun Thanksgiving game and print it out on some cardstock or copy paper.

Then, cut out the game cards along the lines. You’ll want to mix them up to ensure the game is challenging and unpredictable.

The perfect way to do that is to fold the cards and place them in a hat or bowl.

Once you’re ready to play, divide your guests into teams, and have them take turns acting out the different words on the Thanksgiving charade cards while the rest of the team guesses.

Make sure to set the rules that will work for your group before the game starts. Like no talking or humming or singing when acting out the Thanksgiving charades words, whatever you want!

Keep score of how many words each team gets correct within a specified time limit (a minute is usually good). It’s that simple! You can do one round for each team or more, depending on which is the best way for you and your family members.

Try to keep the opposing team quiet so they don’t help the other team, lol! Sometimes that’s hard when everyone is having a lot of fun!
