10 Thanksgiving Games to Make the Holiday Fun for Everyone

Thanksgiving day can be a long one and you may need activities to fill up the time as you wait for the turkey to cook or as you recover between turkey and pie. Especially if you have a crowd, it’s a great time to get some party games going. Here are ideas for games to suit all ages and, especially, games that all ages can play and enjoy together.

Thanksgiving Bingo (Flavor Wire): This version of bingo is for adults and is probably the most fun if you’re the cynical type. Flavor Wire has created four humorous bingo cards and participants cover the squares as the day progresses and they observe things like running out of gravy, someone coming late, a drunk uncle, a pet stealing food, someone starting a story with “when I was your age.”

“The Best” (The Idea Room): describes this game which can be played any time of year but is particularly well suited for a large gathering. You divide into teams and compete in silly contests like who can stand on one foot the longest, who has the tallest thumb and any other contests you can invent.

Pass the Nut (Improvements Catalog): Don’t worry, this is not a version of passing an orange from neck to neck, but with a small nut — that sounds a bit too intimate. This is essentially a relay race where teams carry small objects like nuts and cranberries from bowl to bowl with chopsticks.

Turkey Tag (Let’s Get Together): This is an outdoor game for kids and adults and is a Thanksgiving-themed version of flag tag. The gist is that each person wears three clothespins on their clothing and then everyone runs around trying to remove clothespins from everyone else.

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Drinking Game: If watching the televised parade is a part of your family’s annual tradition, mix it up by making it into a drinking game (and not necessarily alcoholic!). A few years ago Chicago Now published their ideas for prompts like “Drink every time a musical performer messes up the lip syncing”. The bloggers at Cookies Sangria have a similar list (although they suggest doing exercises instead of drinking!) including doing a set of jumping jacks when “the hosts refer to bad parade weather in the distant past ( 25 years ago)”.

Top Turkey Artist (Creative Youth Ideas): This game is a contest to see who can draw the best turkey without looking. The version described here involves putting a book on your head and using that as a drawing surface, but it seems simpler to just blindfold people.

Card Games: A good card game for a mixed-ages group is Uno, if you have a deck. Other games that are easy to learn are Crazy Eights, Hearts, I Doubt It and Spoons. If you’re fuzzy on some of the rules for a card game, Bicycle Cards has a free app with rules to 75 card games that you can download. For young children not ready for true card games, I’m a fan of the Spot It cards that don’t require reading or counting (my kids beat me all the time so it’s still fun for grown-ups) . The original if fun and there are a ton of spin-offs so you’re sure to find one to suit your group.

Board Games: Board games are kind of a no-brainer. Choose based on the age groups you have or break into a kids group and an adult group. Favorites of mine for adults include Scattergories, Trivial Pursuit, Outburst and Taboo. Good ones for kids are Candy Land, Chutes Ladders and Richard Scarry’s Busytown Eye Found It!.

Parlor Games (One Kings Lane): Parlor games are games for groups to play that don’t require a board or anything purchased. The most classic and well known is charades. If you don’t know any, here’s a list of modern twists on classic parlor games.

Conversation starters: This is less of a “game” and more of a fun way to spark conversations, especially as you’re sitting around the table. Either have guests write a few of their own questions or write them yourself ahead of time and then draw them from a bowl and go around the table taking turns answering them. Questions can be anything you like, such as “Where have you always wanted to travel, but haven’t yet?”, “What is your least favorite food?”, “What’s something most people here don’t know about you?”

4 Ridiculously fun road trip games for adults

Combined comments & shares on social media

Road trips are an awesome way to create memories with friends and family. Once you have the right people, all you need are some snacks, music and a few games to make it fun.

Whether you want to start your road trip off on a high note, or are winding down to the destination and need a pick-me-up, road trip games can be a great way to keep people entertained.

1. Guess Who? (10 Questions)

This game can be played by 2 passengers at a time. One passenger thinks of a person, famous or personal connection. The other person can ask 10 yes or no questions that can lead them to figure out who the person is. The best one to start with is typically “Is this person a female (or male)?” Another good one is “Do I know this person?” Based on the yes or no answers, the player can then narrow down who it might be.

2. Hot Seat

Everyone can participate in this one. The hot seat is essentially an interview game where one passenger is asked five questions by anyone else in the car and they have to answer. You can choose to allow a veto for one, so they can avoid any super-awkward questions.

3. A to Z

The objective of the game is to be the first one to spot things along the road trip that start with each letter of the alphabet in order. A for apple tree, and B for BMW will get you in the lead as the other people in the car try to catch up with their ABC call-outs along the way. Each passenger is responsible for keeping their own count, and no one can repeat the same thing twice.

4. Waze

This isn’t a standard road-trip game, but it is a way to help other drivers along your trip. Waze ( is a community-based traffic app which allows other drivers in your area to share real-time traffic tips. There are gaming aspects, like the ability to see other friends in the area, so rest stops and arrivals can be better coordinated.

I’ll be taking a long road trip from New York to Virginia Beach in September, and definitely will be doing all of these. What are some of your favorite road-trip games?

In fact, there is now a plethora of young individuals with immense interest in becoming successful entrepreneurs. If you happen to be one of them, what kind of business would suit your interest, passion, and liking?

Young entrepreneurs are now becoming just as competitive and imaginative as those who have been in the industry much longer. They are far more flexible and thrive to get ahead of the pack. Many of them also find time to attend seminars on establishing businesses and managing finances.

Business #01: Resell Pre-Loved Items

Who does not love going through bulks and bulks of clothes? The ukay-ukay business took the country by storm by the turn of the new millennium. Pre-loved items from countries like HongKong, Japan, South Korea, and Japan are shipped to the Philippines to be sold for rather an affordable price.

Many of these items are designer clothes and bags that may cost an arm and leg when brought directly from the department stores. Many young and middle-aged Filipinos patronize this kind of business because of the quality and durability. For a merely Php 5,000.00, you may purchase a 25-kilo worth of clothes that you can resell. Many business owners have attested to gaining at least 300 times their capital in just 1-2 months.

Business #02: Unleash the fashionista in you and sell accessories

Young women today are getting hooked at designing their own accessories. If you have the knack for designing and creating things, then this is the right business for you. The raw materials can be bought cheaply, but the end products can be sold for a good price. Thus, ensuring profitability.

You may also start selling your work in certain websites. A little bit of creativity is all it takes to start your photography business.

Business #04: Try Cellphone reloading business

Who does not have a mobile phone these days? Selling electronic loads is one of the most lucrative business to date due to the high level of demand. Moreover, there is still a higher number of people who prefer to buy prepaid loads instead of availing themselves of a post-paid plan. In this kind of business, a Php 2,000 worth of initial load can already give you a good start.

Business #05: Offer tutorial services

Becoming a tutor is one of the most rewarding ways to earn money. Therefore, it is also one of the businesses that can easily be established if you happen to be passionate about helping students in their studies. Tutorial services can be offered at home or on-line.

Skills and passion are both required to become successful tutors.You can also start a tutorial group with friends when clients start to pout in. You just have to need to be more resourceful in finding books, review materials, etc.

Business #06: Get into Affiliate Marketing

This business perfectly fits someone who cannot resist being away from the Internet. You can offer your services to people who sell products on-line or to those who blog for a living. An adequate knowledge on the different affiliate marketing strategies, your laptop, and a stable Internet connection are your basic investment to this kind of business.

Business #07: Entice people with sweet tooth

Many young individuals are now are getting hooked to culinary arts and baking. If you happen to have the skills, then you can combine them with your entrepreneurial mind. Bake your speciality cookies and cakes and sell them on-line. Yoy may also get engaged in the weekend gourmet market to earn yourself some extra bucks.

Business #08: Try a rolling store

Do you happen to live close to a school or office building? If so, you can take advantage of your location and sell interesting items in a rolling store. The advantage is that you do not have to rent a place. You can simply pack things up and park your store at night.

Business #9: Invest in Stock Market

As may successful traders say, it is never too early to start investing in the stock exchange. There are now seminars intended to educate people on the Science, methods, advantages, and risks of engaging in the stock market. A mere Php 5,000 can be used as a primary investment.

Business #10: Sell brand new clothes and shoes online.

If you are keen on fashion and know what most people want to buy these days, then you can enter in the world of on-line selling. You can search for your supplier on-line, too, and start with just a few pieces. Set up a Facebook page and you are good to go!

In the realm of business, strategies are just as important as your capital. You may start small, but you can strive to make it bigger, in the long run until you reach the time you already have established the best business in the Philippines.

San Diego Regional Center #san #bernardino #adults #school #lvn, #san #diego


Read about the creation of the Regional Centers system in California, where each client is provided with opportunities to participate in everyday experiences and develop to their highest potential.

It is the philosophy of the Regional Center that each client shall be provided with opportunities to participate in everyday living experiences that permit development to the highest potential.

The San Diego Regional Center provides a variety of services to persons with developmental disabilities and their families that are based on individual needs and supports their independence.

The San Diego Regional Center advocates for opportunities for persons with developmental disabilities to maximize potential and to experience full inclusion in all areas of community life.

The San Diego Regional Center is one of 21 Regional Centers for persons with developmental disabilities in the State of California. These centers were originally established to assist persons with intellectual disabilities and their families in locating and developing services and programs within their communities.

These original centers were established in 1965 under legislation sponsored by Assemblyman Frank Lanterman. The Lanterman Act became effective in 1969 and established the statewide Regional Center network. The Legislation later expanded the populations served to include persons with intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism, and other disabling conditions similar to intellectual disabilities.

The San Diego Regional Center was the third Regional Center established in California. It serves people living within the geographic boundaries of San Diego and Imperial counties.


The San Diego Regional Center is out of compliance with the number of clients assigned to each service coordinator (caseload ratios) as required in the Lanterman Act. Please read the letter from Carlos Flores. SDRC Executive Director, which details the areas of non-compliance and requests your input on a draft plan of correction.


1) Assemblymember Chris Holden is leading the charge to let service provider rates reflect local minimum wages. Can you join us in Sacramento on August 30th. Cities and counties across the state are raising local minimum wages to help ensure workers can make ends meet. But there s no simple way to raise rates for service providers.

Fortunately, a bill by Assemblymember Chris Holden will help fix that. If you can t come in person, you can still call your Senator s office. introduce yourself as a constituent, and say I support AB 279, and I hope my Senator will, too. Read more .

2) The Foundation for Developmental Disabilities assists individuals living with a developmental disability (cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism or intellectual disabilities) to face challenges in the course of learning, working and living in the community. Learn More

Learn Arabic #islam, #islam #online, #learn #arabic, #arabic #courses, #online #arabic



Don t you wish you could understand the Qur an directly? In Arabic? Without translation? Free live training reveals how to read Arabic in 21 short days!

How many times have you asked, “Why is learning Arabic so hard even though it’s supposed to be easy?”

A few? A dozen? At least once?

And how many times have you found an answer that actually gives you hope in your own ability to master it?

Exactly. Because HERE is your answer.

If you’re looking to understand the Qur’an when you stand in prayers this upcoming Ramadan, you NEED to attend this free web-class.

It’s free AND packed with more than an entire YEAR’S worth of university Arabic.

Yes, because Arabic has a CORE and CENTRAL theme that can be taught in an incredibly short period of time.

Knowing this CORE puts you head and shoulders above other students who spend YEARS studying the language as a series of disconnected rules and long lists of words.

Did you know that the majority of meanings in Arabic don’t even come from words.

1. Vowels
2. Patterns
3. grammatical structures

In this free web-class, you will learn how to master the core of how Arabic ACTUALLY works by focusing on the MECHANISM that governs the conveyance of “Non-word meanings”.

What in other languages requires separate words to communicate, Arabic does it through single vowels, entire configurations of vowels (what we call patterns) and grammatical structures.

That is, the WAY in which words are combined together results in meaning ABOVE AND BEYOND the meanings you get from the individual words.

I’ll share with you:

> How to END low motivation and eliminate confusion surrounding the language.

> The NEW way to master vocabulary without tedious memorization

> How to reduce the entire language into just two issues: “sequence not determining grammar” and the “lack of ‘is issue.

> How the Arabic language RESOLVES these two issues through two VERY SIMPLE solutions that can be summarized in a sentence each.

> Plus a whole lot more

It’s hard to keep your enthusiasm for learning high when you’re continuously taught the basics again and again.

Told to memorize endless lists of vocabulary

And taught rules that you really don’t understand and have no earthly idea of why they’re even important

Or how they can ever lead to a better understanding of the Qur’an and Hadith

While one, two or more Ramadans come and go and you’re still stuck at the same level. Year after Year.

That’s what this system is designed to help you avoid.

Learn how to dive straight into the core of the language and focus on the aspects that matter the most.

> Be exposed to what TRULY makes Arabic superior and unique and become emotionally connected so you never give up

> Learn in a way that FEEDS your natural desire to learn and keeps you ENTHUSIASTIC

> Get a complete BIG PICTURE understanding of the entire language so new rules instead of overwhelming you actually excite you because you can see HOW they tie into the big picture

All you gotta do is register here and then show up on the live training.

Then click the link below and register for this free training today.

Join me and let me show you a one-of-a-kind approach that s working really, really well.
