"Don't Eat TOM Turkey" - Thanksgiving Game - Free Printable

One of our favorite Thanksgiving traditions is playing a fun game called "Don't Eat Tom Turkey!" Your kids or grand-kids will love eating the treats while trying to guess which turkey is the lucky "TOM"

How to Play "Don't eat TOM TURKEY!":

  • Place small candies or snacks on top of each of the colorful turkeys on the board game. I've used; cereal, candy corn, M&M’s, skittles, mini marshmallows, etc. 
  • Choose one person in the group to go out of the room.
  • As a group, pick one of the colorful Turkeys to be the special "TOM TURKEY".
  • The person is called back in the room and starts eating the treats that are placed on the Turkeys and keeps eating until they get to the special "Tom Turkey” that was chosen by the group.  When they reach for that treat, everyone else yells, “Don’t eat Tom Turkey!!”
  • That person’s turn is over and a new person goes out of the room to repeat the game OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!

"You've Been Boo'd" Free Printables.

Life isn't all Family History for me. In fact, most of my life revolves around my 5 kidlets who love to stay busy doing crafts, projects and family activities. So, I thought I'd share one of our favorite Halloween Family traditions
; "You've Been Boo'd!" It's one of those traditions I do with my kids and husband every year in the month of October. We put together a candy filled Jack 'o lantern, per family ($1 at Walmart) with these 2 printables:
  1. The note that says "You've Been Boo'd", with instructions to "Boo" someone new. 
  2. The adorable We've Been Boo'd sign to put in their window. 

Now for the FUN part. Let your 5 giggly kids (in my case) take the candy filled Jack o' Lantern to someones doorstep and "DOORBELL DITCH". (ring the doorbell or knock, then run away).  This year, we were a little adventurous and did this in the day. We did this for 3 different families on 3 different streets in our neighborhood so that each street got populated with Boo signs.
