Thanksgiving activities help family, friends and other loved ones
enjoy this autumn holiday all the more. With a few select Thanksgiving
activities in mind, you're able to transform a typical humdrum gathering
into one that is filled with excitement and joy.
For instance, how about creating an authentic holiday feast just
like the pilgrims had? Everyone will dress either as pilgrims or
Indians, though the Indians at the table will need to wear some
bright red pock marks.
These marks will symbolize the chicken pox and smallpox the Europeans
bestowed upon the Native Americans that wiped out 80-percent of
their tribes. Thank goodness there were no reports of turkey pox
at the time.
Another favorite among Thanksgiving activities is "Chase the
Indian with the Musket" that is not only played by children
but adults as well. This game symbolizes how after the First

and cleaning for the day, while the fat and happy pilgrims belch
and watch football on TV. After cooking and cleaning all day, the
Indians are finally allowed to eat the scraps.
Still another of the many Thanksgiving activities that are available
this autumn holiday season is "Turkey Tossing". For this
activity, you'll need to buy a live turkey or two. Similar to "dwarf
tossing" in Australia, turkey tossing involves swinging a turkey
around by the neck and seeing how far one can toss that turkey.
Distance is measured and the one who wins the toss, gets one of
Another of the voluminous Thanksgiving activities that one can
partake of during Turkey Day is "Turkey Football". Just
substitute the turkey for any official NFL football and play a game
in the backyard. The turkey football ads and element of surprise
and the turkey may flap, kick and even peck while being thrown and
carried. Turkeys can also glide for a short distance, so throwing
the "bomb" to an open receiver may carry farther than
These are just a few of the many Thanksgiving activities that are
available to all who day. Be created. Think outside the box. Coming

reward you can give your guests.
