Instead of the after Thanksgiving party being basically hours of football watching and napping, why not try out one of these fun Thanksgiving party games instead? These 30 great Thanksgiving games and activities are perfect for enjoying the rest of the day together. Or skip these games and just try one of these 12 hilarious Thanksgiving minute to win it games instead!
If your family is anything like mine, your Thanksgiving looks like this. Women cook dinner while the men go play in the turkey bowl in the morning. Men return and help finish cooking and carve the turkey. Everyone sits down and eats a delicious meal together. After dinner men go and watch football while women entertain the kids and chat. And lots of turkey induced naps. Sound about right? Not if you play these Thanksgiving games!
