Thanksgiving Fun Resources

It has become a Thanksgiving tradition for me to share a resource or activity you can do with your family over the Thanksgiving break. This year, I created a fun Thanksgiving version of a This or That activity. In this activity, you read one of the prompts such as "Turkey or Ham" You can ask your family to stand on opposite sides of the room depending on which answer they give, give a hand signal to show their answer, guess what a certain family member will say, or just have a debate on which answer is better around your Thanksgiving table! Enjoy these Thirty Thanksgiving This or That prompts! Click the link to download or print a copy!

Other fun resources I've shared in the past include:
