We're so grateful to celebrate this season of Thanksgiving with you! We hope the activities on this page will help your family and friends take a moment out of the busy holiday season to reflect, share, and pray about all the blessings God has given us.


It has been quite the last two years, so we hope that the time you spend counting your blessings and discovering everything we have to be thankful to God for will lead you to peace this holiday season!


We have three great PDF files for you to download and connect with your friends and family for your Thanksgiving Celebrations: Thanksgiving Parade Bingo, the Thankful Alphabet Game, and a Thanksgiving Activity Workbook.

THANKSGIVING PARADE BINGO

Make this year's Thanksgiving Parade experience fun and engaging! We've found a great resource for gamifying the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade by playing Thanksgiving Parade Bingo. Thanks to thekitchenchalkboard.com for putting together these fun bingo cards (9 in total) for everyone to play while watching this year's Thanksgiving Parade. Below are some fun details about how to play along with a link to download the PDF of the Bingo Cards.


Don't forget to snap some photos and share them with us. We'd love to see who and how you were able to participate in this year's Thanksgiving Parade. You can tag us in your social media posts on Facebook and Instagram @sacmetrocc or by text and email at (916) 599-6349 or [email protected]


ENJOY! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!!


WHY PLAY THANKSGIVING PARADE BINGO?

This family activity is easy as it just requires a few pieces of paper. Also, anyone can play from little ones to grandparents. If you can’t celebrate with loved ones in person, share the cards, and you can play over Zoom. If you need time to cook, this is a great way to entertain kids. 


HOW TO PLAY THANKSGIVING PARADE BINGO

If you aren’t familiar with BINGO, here’s how to play.

  • Print out the cards.
  • Everyone picks one. All cards have some floats and balloons you will see in this year’s parade organized randomly.
  • When the parade is on, mark off the floats and balloons as you see them.
  • The first person to have five marks across, down, or diagonal wins the game.


2021 THANKSGIVING PARADE DETAILS

Thanksgiving is November 25, 2021. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade airs on NBC at 9:00 am in all time zones.


TIPS FOR PLAYING THANKSGIVING PARADE BINGO IN 2021 

  • DVR the parade. This way you can watch it whenever and skip commercials. 
  • Bingo markers are a great way to check off which floats and balloons have come by. If you are worried about staining furniture, stickers or pens work well, too.
  • Clipboards are great to use so that you have something to lean on.
  • Come up with a prize for the winner. Buy a chocolate turkey or have the kids make a trophy!

THANKFUL ALPHABET GAME

This is a fun passive game to play while guests wait for dinner to be served. All you do is write down something/person/place you're thankful for beginning with each letter of the alphabet. Once everyone has completed their list, you can either go around and read each person's list or swap lists to see what everyone wrote down.


You can make a fun social media moment by taping each list to the wall to create a collage of everyone's list to take photos in front of. Don't forget to tag us in your photos, we would love to see how you and yours used this game during your Thanksgiving celebrations!


THANKSGIVING ACTIVITY WORKBOOK 2021

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! If you're looking for something fun for kids of all ages, we've put together an 8-page Activity Workbook for the whole family to enjoy. We hope you're able to enjoy this holiday safely with family and friends!
