Touch football. Charades. Board games. Giving thanks. Sing-a-longs. Those are classic Thanksgiving family pastimes. Why not mix it up a little this year? It’s never too late to start a new holiday tradition for the next generation. Get the most out of your family get-together with these fun Thanksgiving activity ideas.

Thanksgiving Bingo

This picture-based bingo game can be played by even the youngest youngsters. And, you can use the images as a jumping off point to teach the kids about Thanksgiving. Bonus points: keep all your bingo boards – and other games – organized and accessible with the Seneca Basket Storage Coffee Table.

Decorate The Christmas Tree

Whether you jump straight from Halloween to Christmas or give Thanksgiving it’s due, decorating the Christmas tree together during the holidays makes an excellent family tradition. Put up your tree before the Thanksgiving guests arrive, if you’re able, and save the trimming for after the turkey.

Run A Turkey Trot

A Walk/Run 5K Turkey Trot is a great way to enjoy a little friendly family competition – and burn off those holiday feast calories. Make it even more special by registering for a race that supports a cause you care about.
