The Games People Play

Hi Everyone! The next holiday is fast approaching – THANKSGIVING!!

A time for anyone and everyone to be thankful, grateful and feel blessed as there are others in the world who are less fortunate.

It’s also time for friends and family to gather together and eat, laugh, then eat some more. And if you have a large and crazy family like mine – COMPETE! They have been known to brag about THEIR KIDS,THEMSELVES, THEIR DOGS, THEIR JOBS, THEIR SHOES and anything else that comes to mind!

I love them all dearly, but everything’s a competition it seems! And being the Sportsmom you all know and love (well, most of you!) I am determined to arrive at Thanksgiving Dinner prepared and ready to have everyone engage in some REAL COMPETITION! I have researched some simple, fun games for all to play no matter what age! After all, tugging on the wishbone of the turkey until it breaks to see who’s half is bigger doesn’t really seem that fun to me.


The bottom line is to truly take the time to enjoy each other’s company…

Life is short, so make it sweet!

From Our Strive2Move Family to Yours,

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!We are grateful for each and every one of you!


Game ideas for all ages, for before – during – and after your foodfest!!

1 – Pin the Tail on the Turkey (for the younger competitors)

Cut out a turkey body, stick on wall, and then blindfold the player who tries to stick the feather on the correct place!

2 – Thanksgiving Pictionary

Place related words in a carved out pumpkin and then have each player or team draw them on a large paper, board or easel for the opposing team to guess wins

3 – Have a Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt

Make of list of items to be found inside and outside and whomever finds them all first
