How to Play Thanksgiving Charades
This Thanksgiving game is a cinch to play!
It’s perfect to play with family (kids, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents), friends, and even co-workers.
Just print out our cards (free printable at the bottom of this post), cut them out, and put them in a bowl.
Split all of the players into two different teams.
Set a timer for three minutes (or any other time limit) while each team member on one team takes turns picking clues and acting them out at the front of the room with gestures (no sounds) while the rest of the team guesses.
The team gets one point for every correct guess, and the points are added up after each turn.
Whichever team has the most points at the end of the game wins!
You could also play so that the first team to get a certain amount of points wins.
The great thing is that you can play for as long or as short as you would like- the amount of turns is up to you.
You can also play partway then switch up the teams for even more fun!
