• All you need is a blindfold!

I’m not quite sure what you call the red part of a turkey’s neck, but we’ve always called it a “gobbler” in my family. So, in tribute to the turkey, the name of the game is “The Great Gobbler.” Have someone in your family sit in the middle of everyone else and then blindfold them. Every else is standing in front of them. One at a time, each family member steps forward and gives their best turkey gobble, trying not to laugh so they don’t give themselves away. After each gobble, the blindfolded person tries to guess who the “gobbler” was. If they get it right they get a point! After all of your family gobbles, have another person be blindfolded and have the rest of the family gobble all over again so they can guess. You might have to change your gobbles in order to disguise your identity! Whoever has the most points at the end of the game is crowned “The Great Gobbler!”

So What? Playing this game gets everyone laughing. I love that even when you are making funny noises, their are little traits about each of my family members that lets me know who they are. Whether it’s the snort in their laugh or their high pitched voice or just the fact that they always make up the craziest sound (which would be my husband), each person is unique. This is a great opportunity to talk about what the unique traits are to each person in your family. What makes each person special? And in the spirit of Thanksgiving, what makes you thankful for them?
