  4. Watch the Thanksgiving Day parade.

  5. Donate canned goods to a local food shelter.

  6. Have your kids make place cards while the turkey is in the oven.

  7. Play a game of flag football.

  9. Take a walk after dinner.

  10. Set up a craft table for kids to make turkeys out of construction paper and pine cones. Have coloring sheets available for younger kids.

Thank you for coming up with such good ideas. I live in San Diego so we always sign up to have marines over for the day, it is always wonderful to meet them and share in the day.
