Thanksgiving Worksheet For Kids – Find Someone Who Activity
This Thanksgiving printable will encourage a day of no electronics! Doesn’t that sound marvelous? I know, we struggle with getting the kids to plug into the experience whenever we go visit extended cousins and I think printable Thanksgiving games will help everyone do just that.
There’s nothing I hate more than to look down the long table of family and friends and see my kids HEADS DOWN looking at TikTok or YouTube during a holiday function. I mean… they are there with us in the room, sure! But are they really present? It’s unhealthy. As parents, we have to do our part to make sure that they are engaging and WITH US while we still have them.
Before we know it, these children will be off to college and starting lives of their own. Don’t get me started on how fast time is flying. I want our kids to still be kids while they are under our umbrellas. And so, I created a few games to keep them in that frame of mind. I hope you consider using this one in a few days when you gather with your loved ones.
How Does The Thanksgiving Activity For Kids Work?
Let’s talk a little bit about how it all works. First, download your copy of this free Thanksgiving activity for kids. Click here to save a copy to your desktop. There are two different styles for you to choose from within the PDF.
I would give a copy of this activity to each child that is attending the holiday dinner. If you have any adults that want to play along – please feel free to give them a page as well. The more the merrier!!
Then, while everyone is enjoying their appetizers and small talk, allow the kids to run around and get to know their relatives. What are some of the questions they will be asking?
Has a sibling
Is related to you
Owns a pet
Is wearing something related to Thanksgiving
Brought a dessert
Lives in the same neighborhood as you
Is an only child
Who likes cranberry sauce
Has brown eyes
Is wearing a watch
Has black shoes on
Doesn’t have any brothers
Who doesn’t like chocolate
Who goes to the gym
Who lives with their parents
Has traveled to Europe
Knows how to play the piano
Who hates sweet potatoes
Has baked an apple pie
Who loves mac and cheese
Here’s the beauty of this activity sheet – not everything relates to Thanksgiving! So, the conversation won’t revolve entirely around turkey! This means that people can start talking about their personal lives.
They can bring up memories of past trips to Europe, how many times they go to the gym during the week, how they used to be the captain of the football team – you name it!
People love to talk about themselves and this is always a great way to veer the conversation about from HOT TOPICS that usually end up boiling over into heated arguments. Keep it light! Who doesn’t eat chocolate? Let’s talk about that!!
