Thanksgiving Activities for Kids
Activities, games and gifts for the whole family to make this Thanksgiving the best one yet!
Anomia Card Game
Anomia plays off the fact that our minds are positively brimming with all sorts of random information; things to eat, pop songs, websites, etc. Sure, under normal circumstances, it’s easy enough to give an example of a frozen food, or a dog breed; but you will find that your brain works a little differently under pressure! The directions are simple. Draw a card from the center pile and flip it over. Does the symbol on your card match one on another player’s card? If so, you must quickly face-off with the other player by giving an example of the person, place, or thing on their card before they can do the same for yours. If you blurt a correct answer out first, you win their card and drawing continues. Sounds simple, right? Wrong. Wild cards allow unlike symbols to match, increasing the number of things you must pay attention to. Cascading face-offs can occur when you hand over a lost card revealing a new top card on your play pile. All this adds up to a high-energy, hilarious play experience where everyone is involved at all times. Easy to learn, fun to play over and over again, Anomia will have any group of friends, family, even perfect strangers, shouting and laughing out loud as they try to beat each other to the punch!

You don’t have to be good at accents to play, have fun with it and be silly to make the phrases your own! It’s a fun, laugh-out-loud game for the whole family!

The idea is simple. Someone asks for a part of speech: a verb, a noun, an adjective, or an adverb. We’ve included definitions and examples of the parts of speech in case you’ve forgotten. Players call out their ideas to fill in the blanks and in the end, you have a story reeling from one silly sentence to another until nothing makes sense. That’s why players call Mad Lib the world’s greatest word game. Players have been howling with friends or laughing to themselves for over 35 years!
