Fun Indoor Thanksgiving Games for Kids

These are great games to play when guests arrive or to occupy the kids while I’m putting the finishing touches on the meal. This holiday season, try out one of these four indoor Thanksgiving games for kids.

I like to get outdoors with the kids on Thanksgiving. However, it's also fun to have some indoor games to play. These are great games to play when guests arrive or to occupy the kids while I'm putting the finishing touches on the meal. This holiday season, try out one of these four indoor Thanksgiving games for kids.

Turkey Bowling

This is almost like a craft and game in one. First, take a toilet paper roll. Cut a rectangle of brown construction paper to wrap around the roll and secure with clear tape. Then, cut out red, orange and yellow feathers. Take one of each feather color and tape it onto the back of the toilet paper roll. Have kids draw a turkey face on the front. Line up the turkeys like bowling pins and give kids two chances to knock down the "pins." The smaller and lighter the ball, the harder the game becomes.

Pie in the Face

For this, I took the lid of a boot box and drew some circles (I used a canister to trace each one). Then, I cut out the circles but left an inch attached to the top (like a flap). Then, I drew faces on the cardboard and painted the rest of the box orange. Next, I drew different types of pie and taped each onto a tennis ball. You could also use a hacky sack, bean bag or small ball. Kids can practice throwing the pie at the faces….kind of like a pie in the face.

The 'Great Pumpkin' Races

This is a great game if you have a bigger group of kids. Divide the kids up into even groups. If there is an extra, you can have kids take turns saying "on your mark, get set go." Give each group a mini-pumpkin. So no one gets poked or scratched, pick one with a small stem. You might even want to cover the stem with a piece of masking tape. First you can do an "over-under race" where kids pass the pumpkin over their heads and then under their legs. Next, you can do a "side-to-side" race. Passing the pumpkin near their waist, children twist side-to-side and pass the pumpkin down the line. In both races, the mini-pumpkin should be passed from the front to the back of the line.

Pass the Turkey

This game is similar to hot potato. First, find some Thanksgiving-themed music, such as the Thanksgiving Theme song from Charlie Brown by Vince Guaraldi. Next, you will need a turkey stuffed animal or beanie baby. Then, sit all the kids in a circle. The object of the game is to pass the turkey around until the music stops. The person who has the turkey is out!
