Thanksgiving is a new holiday for us, that we have only been celebrating for the last 4 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 Thanksgiving dinner was cooking, I decided this year to make a fun game we can play while we wait. So I have made these FREE holiday scattergories that we can play.

You can find the digital download link at the bottom of the page, and you will be emailed the pdf file.

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!

Scattergories to Play on Thanksgiving

We don’t tend to follow the rules when we play any games, 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 game 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 will print out on one sheet of paper for each word, so there is enough room for the kids to write on. They print best on white cardstock.

The category list for this free printable game are:

  • Something thankful for
  • Fall Activity
  • Thanksgiving food
  • Something orange
  • Thanksgiving tradition
  • Favorite movies set in fall.

The letters of the alphabet you will use are:

  • LEAF
  • GIVE
  • FALL
  • CORN

The aim of the game is to find unique Thanksgiving words to add to the scattergories game card. The reason they have to be unique is that if someone else has the word neither of you gets any points.

So for the letter F, I 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 Day. Are your powers of persuasion any good? If so you will win a point!

This is the older design, but you will receive this one and the new updated design.

This is a great way to play Scattergories if you don’t have the classic scattergories game. But I highly recommend getting the original as it’s awesome!
