Fun Thanksgiving ๐Ÿค— Games to Get You Moving after Your Thanksgiving Feast ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ› ...

I'm mentally preparing myself for the food ๐ŸŒฝ hangover that I'm going to have after Thanksgiving. It's the one excuse I have to take a break from my regular diet without feeling guilty, which means that I'll definitely take all of those second-third-fourth rounds for granted. But aside from the delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹ food, one of the things that I love the most about Thanksgiving is the time ๐Ÿ•  you get to spend with your family ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘งworking it all off ๐Ÿ’ช. My family and I recently started playing different Thanksgiving games ๐ŸŽฒ to keep our bodies moving. There's nothing like creating new memories while burning ๐Ÿ”ฅ all of those extra calories at the same time.

1. Fitness Scavenger Hunt ๐Ÿ’ช

A really cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž way to get everyone moving ๐Ÿƒ is by hiding small Thanksgiving-themed cutouts around the house ๐Ÿ  and backyard. Each cutout can have a small strip of paper with instructions for a specific mini workout like seven push ups or ten squats. You won't even notice that you're working out!

2. DIY Bowling

Rather than driving ๐Ÿš— out to the nearest bowling ๐ŸŽณ alley, why not use your backyard? You can use empty or full water ๐Ÿ’ง bottles as the pins. Just be sure to tape fall ๐Ÿ‚ colored feathers ๐Ÿ“ on top of the water bottles like a turkey's tail!

3. Turkey Clothespin Tag

This doubles as a fun sport ๐Ÿˆ and arts and crafts activity. First, grab a set of clothespins and paint ๐ŸŽจ them in different colors. Next, cut out triangles from an orange ๐ŸŠ piece of felt. and ovals from a red โญ• piece of felt and glue them onto the pins. Lastly. you can either glue a set of googly eyes ๐Ÿ‘€ or draw โœ๏ธ them in. You'll all have to run ๐Ÿƒ around and steal each other's clothespins; the person who ends up with the most at the end wins!

4. Bike Ride ๐Ÿšฒ

Here's a secret. Going for a bike ride ๐Ÿšฒis one of the most relaxing activities to do after a day spent avoiding ๐Ÿ™‰ awkward questions ๐Ÿ˜… about your love ๐ŸŒน life. Bonus points if the weather ๐ŸŒž is super nice - otherwise, make sure you're bundled up!

5. Pumpkin ๐ŸŽƒ Slide Bowling

This is a fun twist on the traditional bowling game ๐ŸŽณ. This is the perfect ๐Ÿ‘Œ excuse to take your family ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ to the playground. Instead of using a ball ๐Ÿ”ด to knock over "pins" or water ๐Ÿ’ง bottles, have the kids roll a small pumpkin down the slide and see how many they can knock over! Sliding down right after is optional.

6. Charades

It doesn't matter how old you are. Everyone loves โค๏ธ a good game ๐ŸŽฎ of charades. The trick is to only use Thanksgiving related words!

7. Marshmallow Toss

This is a sweet ๐Ÿฌ idea! All you will need is a few bags of marshmallows, and two jump ropes or masking tape. Use the ropes or tape to make two parallel lines on the ground that each team will stand behind. The goal is to throw marshmallows into the designated catcher's mouth. Whichever team catches the most marshmallows wins. Think of this game as your alternate dessert ๐Ÿฉ option!
