Thanksgiving is a new holiday for us, that we have only been celebrating for the last 2 years. It always falls near my husband’s birthday, so we get to have DOUBLE celebrations. Any excuse for a party!! After playing the waiting game last year while the turkey was cooking, I decided this year to make some games we can play while we wait. So I have made these FREE thanksgiving scattergories that we can play.
You can find the download link at the bottom of the page.
As a side note – as it is nearly Thanksgiving make sure you keep checking our Black Friday Deals for Kids post, this will be updated as soon as we spot any new deals!

How to Play Thanksgiving Scattergories
We don’t tend to follow the rules, so we don’t set a timer for this. We just print them out and play! But if you were doing it properly you would set a 2-minute timer.
Print out the same sheet for as many people as you have got at the table. Make sure everyone has a pen and you are ready to play. These print out on one sheet of paper so there is enough room for the kids to write on.
The aim of the game is to find unique Thanksgiving words to add to the scattergories board. The reason they have to be unique is that if someone else has the word neither of you gets any points. So for F I probably wouldn’t use the word Fall or Football, as they are the most common words. If you are playing with younger children though, let them find the easy words!
If you add a word that isn’t a Thanksgiving word such as V for varnish, you need to be able to convince people it is linked to Thanksgiving. Are your powers of persuasion any good? If so you will win a point!
This is a great way to play Scattergories if you don’t have the original game (but I highly recommend getting the original as it’s awesome!).

Make sure you choose the correct paper size and then click on the shrink to fit button. With all of our printables, they work better when printed on cardstock (this is the one we use and love.) As ink can be expensive you can choose to print these out in grayscale and they will still look amazing.
