1. Gratitude alphabet game
This gratitude game is simple and does not require any materials to play. All you and your family need is a little imagination. To play the Gratitude Alphabet game, players simply walk around the table and name something they are grateful for, but there is a catch. Players must go through the alphabet in order, taking turns naming something they are grateful to start with the letter A and work your way up to the letter Z.

2. Gratitude candy game
For kids with a sweet tooth, this gratitude game might just be the ticket. To play, fill a bowl with Skittles, M & M’s, or any multi-colored candy. Next, create a key card with different gratitude prompts corresponding to the different colors of candy. For example, red could be “someone you are grateful for”, while yellow could be “a memory you are grateful for”. To play, each player closes their eyes, takes a candy from the bowl, and then responds to the corresponding prompt.
3. Gratitude turkey game
This game takes a little preparation, but the results are adorable. Cut out a turkey shape from brown construction paper, then cut out feather, beak, and foot shapes using multi-colored construction paper. Glue everything together to create your construction paper turkey, then add googly eyes for good measure. On Thanksgiving Day, give each of your friends and family a turkey and have them write something they are thankful for on each turkey feather.
4. Gratitude art game
This gratitude game is like an art project that meets a treasure hunt. To play, give each participant a sheet of paper and colored pencils or markers. Then tell them to explore your house or garden and draw all the things they are thankful for. If you prefer to play the game at the table, you can also play by having people choose things that they can see from their seats and that they are thankful for and draw them.
5. Gratitude pot game
To play this gratitude game, all you need is a jar, pen, and paper. Before Thanksgiving dinner begins, write the gratitude-related questions on small pieces of paper and place them in the jar. The questions can be as serious or as wacky as you want them to be. Then, after everyone has gathered around the Thanksgiving table, pass the pot around and let people take turns answering the different questions.
