Your Free Printable Thanksgiving Treasure Hunt
If you’re looking for a fun activity to do with the kids on Thanksgiving Day this is the perfect game.
While most of these Thanksgiving items are easy to find around your house or neighborhood during this time of year, you can also get creative.
If you live in a city or somewhere that is usually covered in snow but the end of November, you can always purchase these items from a craft store. You could also print out pictures of each item to hide in different locations around the house for an indoor scavenger hunt.
The list of items includes:
- A pumpkin
- A red able
- Twigs or sticks
- A squirrel
- A yellow leaf
- A Football
- A pilgrim hat
- Black Bird
- A Scarecrow
- A wishbone
- Pumpkin Pie
- An owl
- A feather
- A pinecone
- A turkey
- Fall Decorations.
Another fun way to complete this Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt game is to check off the items as you watch a local or televised Thanksgiving Parade. Your kids will have so much fun using this as a Thanksgiving Bingo Checklist to see who can find the most items.
Another great option to get the entire family involved is to split everyone up into small groups and set a time limit to see if anyone can find all of the objects within the allotted time.
You could even offer small prizes at the end of the hunt to make sure everyone is motivated to participate.
