I saw a cute gratitude game on another blog recently and the idea popped into my head to adapt it for Thanksgiving dinner. Instead of using sticks, I thought it would be fun to use fun-sized M&Ms candy.
1. Frame the printable guide and place it in the center of the table. I plan on using a cheap 5x7 frame from the dollar store, but you can just as easily print it out and place the paper in the center of the table.
2. Give each person at the table a fun-sized package of M&Ms.
3. Each person opens their M&Ms and dumps them onto the table.
4. Each person takes a turn naming their gratitudes based on the color of each M&M in front of them. If you get a brown M&M, you have to name all 5 gratitudes!
That's it! It's a nice game to play before dinner while waiting for everything to finish up, or between dinner and dessert. Regardless of when you decide to play it, it's a fun twist on the traditional Thanksgiving activity of going around the table and saying what you are thankful for.
