Play Gratitude Pictionary With The Family For Thanksgiving

Playing Gratitude Pictionary On Thanksgiving

Looking for a novel, fun way to express gratitude during Thanksgiving that engages the whole family?

Try a round of “Gratitude Pictionary” at the table this year.

Here’s how it works:

  • Prop up an easel if you have one, or just use a large sketch pad braced against a wall.
  • Let everyone know they’ll be drawing something for which they are grateful. The more unobvious, the more fun.
  • Remind family members not to blurt out their ideas beforehand and to think of some backups just in case picks overlap.
  • As each family member draws, the others will try to be the first to guess what it is.
  • Kick it off with your own gratitude drawing to get the ball rolling. Keep sketching until someone guesses right.
  • Rotate turns with the pen until everyone around the table has had a shot.
  • Encourage family members to explain their gratitude choices as they’re identified. You might gain some interesting insight!
  • Having fun? Go around again! :-)

Try it as a closing activity over dessert.

Be sure to take pictures of everyone with their gratitude drawings. Your photo album will serve as a nice little keepsake catalog of the things your family truly cherishes.
