Kick your Thanksgiving party up a notch with these fun party games! All these games are designed to even better with more people, so invite the whole group to play!
1. THE MAYFLOWER
Fill one of those big long under the bed storage containers with water. Give everyone a small cork with a fake flower stuck into it and have them put in on one end of the storage container. To win, a player must be the first one to get their cork from one end of the storage container to the other, by only blowing on it. They can either blow on it alone or through a plastic straw. First cork “boat” to touch the other end wins.
2. THE GOBLET GOBBLE
Purchase glass or plastic goblets (a large cups works well also) and place one per team/player on a table on a far side of the room. On the other side of the room, place orange ping pong balls. To play, players must transfer three ping pong balls from the table to their goblet on the opposite side of the room. The catch? They can only touch (and hold) the ping pong ball between their chin and their neck.
3. SHAKE YOUR TAILFEATHERS
Before the party, empty a tissue box for each player and replace the tissues with craft feathers. Tape a pair of pantyhose onto each box so the box is in the middle of the pantyhose. To play, give each player a box tied with pantyhose and have them tie the pantyhose around their waist so the tissue box is on their backside. Players must move around and shake until all of the feathers fall out of their tissue box.
4. FACE THE PIE
Before the party, put together five gummy letters that spell out a word (e.g., feast, carve, bread) for each player. Put one letter of each of those words into an empty aluminum pie tin. Then fill each of those pin tins with spray whipped cream and put in the refrigerator so they don’t melt. To play, players must race to eat through their pies to find the letters inside. Once they find the letters inside, they must unscramble them to create the Thanksgiving-themed word you came up with. And throughout everything, even unscrambling, they can only use their mouth.
5. TURKEY BOWL
Place a fish bowl with a plastic or stuffed turkey in the middle of a room. Place a large bowl of colored ping pong balls (different colors in each bowl) 10 feet away from the fishbowl in the four directions (to the right, to the left, in front of, behind), so you have the fishbowl in the middle and ping pong bowls forming a circle/square around it. Players have to race to be the first to land one (or more if your teams are good) ping pong ball in the turkey bowl just by bouncing it.
