Hide and Gobble Thanksgiving Party Game
There’s nothing quite so much fun as this turkey-themed version of hide and seek. In this case two people will be elected to be “it”. Both kids cover their eyes and stand against the wall while the rest of the children hide paper turkeys around the house or building. The winner is the child who finds the most turkeys.
