More about Thanksgiving bingo

Ah, Thanksgiving—a day filled with turkey, family, and a parade of stretchy pants. But let’s be honest, after the fourth serving of pumpkin pie, even the most animated family conversation can wane. So, why not spice up your Thanksgiving gathering with a game that’s as much a classic as grandma’s stuffing? Enter Thanksgiving bingo.

Why Thanksgiving bingo?

Thanksgiving bingo gives the timeless game of bingo a festive twist. Instead of letters and numbers, your bingo card is filled with Thanksgiving icons and traditions—think “turkey,” “cranberry sauce,” and “Macy’s Parade.” It’s a fun and interactive way to keep the celebration going.

How to play Thanksgiving bingo

For family gatherings: Strengthening bonds

  1. Create themed bingo cards: Design bingo cards filled with Thanksgiving-related items, such as ‘Turkey’, ‘Pumpkin Pie’, ‘Gratitude List’, and ‘Family Football Game’.
  2. The game of thanks: Before the game starts, have each player write down something they’re thankful for on a blank card to be included in the bingo draw.
  3. Prizes with a twist: Consider offering Thanksgiving-themed prizes, like a homemade pie, a decorative candle, or an extra helping of dessert for the winners.

In schools: Educating and celebrating

  1. Thanksgiving history bingo: Use cards that feature historical figures, symbols, and facts related to the Thanksgiving holiday to educate students in a fun way.
  2. Crafts and creativity: Encourage students to create their own bingo cards with drawings or stickers representing different aspects of Thanksgiving.
  3. Gratitude circle: After the game, facilitate a discussion where students can share what they’re thankful for, promoting a sense of gratitude and community.

At community events: Bringing people together

  1. Large-scale bingo fun: Organize a Thanksgiving bingo tournament with larger groups, using a projector or a big screen to display the bingo calls.
  2. Inclusive celebrations: Make sure to include symbols and traditions from various cultures that celebrate Thanksgiving, reflecting the diversity of the community.
  3. Community potluck: Tie in a community potluck where winners can choose a dish to take home or get first dibs on the dessert table.
