Let’s face it. Kids can get pretty frustrated waiting for the turkey to be carved and grace to be said. Add to that frustration the fact that young children are often a bit uncomfortable at large family gatherings where every stranger they see knows everything about them and seems to want a hug, and it’s easy to see why toddlers sometimes throw tantrums at Thanksgiving dinner.
Older kids do, too, I’m told.
Ok, I’ve witnessed it.
Actually, I’ve survived it, which is why I thought today’s free printable might help you out.
It’s a game for kids to play while they wait, whether at your family’s gathering or your homeschool group’s. It would also be a great addition to your kids’ class parties if you’re helping throw them this year!
It’s a simple game of I-Spy. Kids just count the objects and write the numbers. (Yes, we’ll probably count it as part of school tomorrow. Counting and penmanship. Done and done.)
If you print it out for a gathering, you could even have a race to see who can find the objects the fastest and offer a prize to the winner. Nothing like a little healthy competition to get their minds off of their rumbling tummies.
