There’s a lot of anticipation and preparation for Thanksgiving Day, but when the actual day and its guests arrive, it’s easy to push the children aside. Don’t leave the kids out of the fun! This year you can purpose to include them with these free Thanksgiving printables. The Conversation Cards, Thanksgiving Jokes, and Thanksgiving Mad Libs will all help to tell your children that they are special too!
Thanksgiving Day Conversation Cards
We often have the best intentions to take a moment and share from our hearts on Thanksgiving Day, but how often do we actually follow through? We may feel awkward when the opportunity arrives! Go easy on yourself by breaking the ice with these free, printable Thanksgiving Conversation Cards! These are especially helpful if you have a group of people around your table that love each other, but honestly may not be very fond of each other. (And they’ll be even more of a success if your guests/family all get along swimmingly!)
Commit yourself ahead of time by putting the children in charge of these convo cards before your guests arrive. Then, as soon as the pumpkin pie is served, they can whip out the cards and start the fun turkey talk!
Kids love jokes and riddles, and these free, printable Thanksgiving Jokes will be a real hit with your children! If you’re getting together for Thanksgiving with family and friends that your children don’t remember or rarely see, these jokes could also make it easier for your children to interact with your guests. They can use these cute jokes to break the ice with some of the grown-ups and have an easier time getting reacquainted with the cousins!
Thanksgiving Mad Libs for Kids
Mad Libs are so much fun, and this particular one has a Thanksgiving theme! These little worksheets (shh! Yes, I just called it a “worksheet.” Don’t tell the kids!) are wonderful because they combine fun with grammar, and they’re great for older elementary kids. It’s a great alternative to a coloring sheet. Your kids will be enjoying themselves so much, they won’t even realize they’re brushing up on their language skills!
