Happy Thanksgiving!

Thursday is Thanksgiving! It's the start to my favorite time of the year. I always look forward to the traditional Thanksgiving feast with family and friends. Since there are going to be all kinds of people over for the celebration how about getting the whole family active with a game of "Duck-Duck-Turkey"? Yes I changed it from Duck-Duck-Goose but I thought it was appropriate given the impending holiday.

Have everyone gather in a circle facing inward. Have someone think of a number from one to how ever many people are playing. Each player than chooses a number in that range to determine who is "it" first. The person who is "it" walks around the circle lightly tapping people on the head saying duck. PLEASE NOTE: No smacking your cousin or brother really hard on the head! Once you decide who is the next person to be "it" say "Turkey" when you tap their head. Run around the circle and if you get to their seat before they touch you, they are now it.

It's fun for the whole family to play and will help everyone work off a little of the Thanksgiving Feast. Have fun, stay active and don't get too crazy with all the holiday shopping this weekend!
