Scrabble Anyone?

Don't laugh...this is based on a real game played by the pilgrims all those hundreds of years ago. Their game did not include little wooden tiles though. To play each player needs a piece of paper and a pencil. A timer is also needed. The game starts when one person (it doesn't matter who, but it should be a different person each round) states a long word like: transportation. Players write the word at the top of their paper. Then begin play by taking the first letter of the word (T) and writing as many words they can think of that begin with that letter in 90 seconds. When the time is up, players compare lists. Points are awarded only to words that were not repeated on anyone else's list. Play then begins again with the next letter, and continues until all letters have been played. If a letter is repeated, skip it and move onto the next. When all letters have been played tally points, declare the winner, select a new word and begin again.

If traditional Scrabble is more your thing, have fun! Maybe you can shake up your usual routine by playing speed scrabble.

Touch Wood Tag

This game is your basic tag, and even the youngest children can play. Rules are simple, avoid the player who is "it" while running from one safe spot to the next. Safe spots are anything made of wood. If  "it" catches you off of a safe spot it is your turn to be  "it". To insure a fast paced game it may be necessary to include a time limit for staying still at one safe spot. Perhaps you have to change spots after counting to 10.

Bell Jingler

In this Thanksgiving game the usual role of it is reversed in that everyone is trying to catch "it", not avoid "it". All players except "it" are blind folded.  "It"  holds a jingle bell and jingles it as the other players try to catch "it" by following the sound. Once a child finds "it" the bell is passed to them and play resumes.


Thanksgiving games add even more fun to an already special holiday. Gather the family and play this Thanksgiving!
