Add some laughter to your Thanksgiving gathering {free activity}

How are you celebrating Thanksgiving this week? Whether you are traveling to visit family or hosting dinner at your house this year, I hope you are able to enjoy the holiday with your family and friends. And while you’re at it, why not add some laughter to the party?

Like me, you are probably most concerned about the food on the menu. (Mom, if you’re reading this I’m hoping for a big helping of mashed potatoes and butter.) While food is certainly important, have you given any thought to activities to keep everyone entertained while they’re waiting for things to finish cooking?

I like to bring games along to family gatherings so we have something fun to do together. This year, I decided to create a holiday themed mad lib that we could all do while we’re sitting around the table. And I am so happy with how it turned out that I wanted to share it with you.

As I was writing this mad lib the other day, I discovered that I really enjoy creating little rhymes for things like this. I hope you have some good laughs as you go around the table and read aloud your rhyming mad libs. Here’s how mine turned out (it’s more fun when you read it out loud):Need a quick & easy activity to do at your Thanksgiving gathering?

Not sure what a mad lib is? Basically, one side of the worksheet has a list of things you need to think of and write in. So for a noun, you might write down “PIE” and for an exclamation you might write down “HOORAY”. Once you fill in all the blanks, you or another person flips it over and fills your answers into the blanks in the story. To get the laughter going, go around the room and have everyone read their completed rhyme out loud.

I know you have a lot on your mind whether you are preparing food, packing for the weekend, or selecting a holiday outfit for your toddler, but take a couple minutes to download this worksheet and hit print.

It’s double sided, so you’ll want to print the first page and then put it back in your printer to print page two on the backside. I made two to a page, so once they’re printed you can simply cut them in half.

I hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving with your family and friends this weekend. I am looking forward to a day with family on my parents’ farm and we’ll most definitely be having some fun with our mad libs. Happy Thanksgiving!
