Some things just make sense together: peanut butter and jelly, hot chocolate and marshmallows, cookies and ice cream. For many families, this list also includes Thanksgiving and football. There are some great family traditions rooted in watching parades and sporting events together, it definitely can be quality time!

Just in case your family is looking for something to do during halftime or so your family’s eyes don’t glaze over, here are some family fun alternatives:


  • Stuff The Turkey. Make a paper bag turkey out of brown lunch sacks and team up to see who can “stuff” the turkey!
