Thanksgiving Minute To Win It Games your family can play and enjoy while the turkey cooks and the Macy’s Day parade fills your TV screen.
I love the simplicity and all around fun of minute-to-win-it games. They’re easy to create and almost always guarantee a lot of laughs.
Candy Corn Shake Up
Fill five cups with candy corn, going from one to five. Cover and mix them up, then let kids shake the cups and put them in order of least to most in one minute. If the kids are older and this goes quickly, increase it to ten cups. Idea from Kid Friendly Things To Do
