Fall Scavenger Hunt

A fun fall scavenger hunt is a great way to keep the kids busy and out enjoying the cool crisp day, provided that you have good weather.  My family lives close to a wooded park and is the perfect location for some pre-dinner fun.  They run around the park working up a big appetite while some of us stay behind to finish up the dinner preparations without the kids in the way.

Thankful from A to Z

We have always talked about what we are thankful for at dinner and it’s the same every year, we are thankful for our family, our health, to have that out of town guest at the table.  After those sediments mix it up a little but with this fun Thankful From A to Z Challenge.  Everyone has to write something they are thankful for each letter of the alphabet.  I bet you didn’t know how thankful everyone was for X-Ray machines and Xylophones did you?





For some after dinner fun for the whole family, how about charades?  We’ve come up with some ideas that are good ones for the whole family.  We do teams so that the smaller children are matched up with an adult to help them out.  Some are harder than others, but it’s always a great time.  Just print off the printable, cut them up, and you are ready to play.

Thanksgiving Mad Libs

I don’t care how old you are, Mad Libs are hilarious!  These cute Thanksgiving Mad Libs are no exception!  Created by fellow blogger, Sisters Suitcase Blog, they are sure to leave your kids in stitches of laughter.  They won’t even realize that Mad Libs is a teaching tool, what a fun way to learn about verbs, nouns, and adjectives!



Pictionary is one of my all-time favorite games.  We have the board game, but even if you don’t really need it to play.  There is an only tool you can use to generate the words and then all you need is a marker board!  So much fun, especially after a few glasses of wine.   If you have more than 4 people do it in teams and have a blast!  CLICK HERE for the online word generator.
