How to Play Thanksgiving Charades:
1. Separate everyone into teams of about 4 or 5. Have one volunteer from each team come up to be the first round of actors. The actors are not allowed to talk during the game, and aren’t allowed to motion any letters.

2. Show the volunteers only the first line. Have the volunteers walk back to their teams. When you say “Go”, the volunteers need to start motioning the word/phrase or other hints to help the team guess the word. The first team that raises their hand and guesses the object correctly wins one point for their team.

3. Go through the rest of the list. The volunteers will evenly rotate in the same order, until all of the words/phrases are done. The first team to reach 10 points wins the game.
