14 Adult-Approved Friendsgiving Activities You Can Buy or DIY

Yeah, yeah, yeah — traditionally Thanksgiving is pretty much all about the feast. But the holiday, whether you spend it with the fam or have turned it into Friendsgiving, is also about spending quality time with your squad. What better way to hang out with your loved ones than to get your game on? Check out some of our faves that you can buy or DIY for Thanksgiving.

1. DIY Clay Wishbone: Um, how adorable are these DIY clay wishbones? Add one to every other place setting so each person can break the wishbone with their seat partner. (via Oh Happy Day)

2. Tic Tac Toe: We know you have oodles of washi tape laying around your house, and you probably have extra mini pumpkins from Halloween. Tape out a tic tac toe board on a side table with washi to make a classic game kids *and* adults love. (via It’s Overflowing)

3. Turkey Bowling: Go head-to-head in a game of bowling with your fam — snag a few butternut squashes at the grocery store, DIY a set of pins and use a medium-sized pumpkin as the bowling ball. (via The Dating Divas)

4. Cards Against Humanity Holiday Pack ($12): Cards Against Humanity is the go-to game for parties these days. Pick up this pack to refresh your deck just in time for the holidays.

5. Coloring for Adults: DL this free printable so your friends and family can unleash their inner creativity. Who can resist a coloring page and neon Sharpies? We can’t. (via Red Ted Art)

6. Football: After you feast on turkey and watch the pros play on TV, re-energize the fam with a game of football in the backyard. It’s a Turkey Day classic!

7. Draw Together Thanksgiving Set ($10): Is the turkey still cooking in the oven? Keep your guests busy with these placemats. Kiddos and adults alike will be SO entertained.

8. DIY Gilded Leaves: Not into watching the football game? Get your DIY on and make these gilded leaves. All you need is a bag of artificial leaves, some glue or Mod Podge and glitter. (via House of Jade)

9. Heads Up!: DL Ellen DeGeneres’s app and play it as you burn off your minor (okay, major) food baby. Get ready for all of the fun.

DL It: $0.99 on iOS + free on Android

10. Thankful Jar: This activity rocks our socks. Spray paint a few rocks, have your guests write what they’re thankful for on T-Day and read them off before you eat. (via Or So She Says)

11. Parade-opoly ($28): The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a Turkey Day fave. Play this festive version of Monopoly while you watch.

12. Thanksgiving Bingo: Print off this version of bingo that will keep your guests entertained all day. This isn’t your average bingo, though. Our personal fave? Drunk aunt. (via Flavorwire)

13. DIY Pumpkin Piñata: Need a way to use up all that leftover Halloween candy? DIY this Thanksgiving piñata. Your friends and family will have a ball taking a whack at it. (via eHow)

14. Spinner Table Game: Pop this spinner game on the dinner table to get the conversation going. You can either use the printable or make your own with your favorite questions. (via The Dating Divas)
