Materials Needed

  • a big pile of leaves
  • Adults can make games so complicated, kids understand that it is just all about having fun. Watch the leaves fly as the children at your Thanksgiving party dig around for hidden treasures.


    Rake up a lot of leaves into a big pile, the bigger the better. Hide wrapped candies, small Thanksgiving themed toys, a few dollars bills, or anything else that kids will want in the pile of leaves. Invite the kids outside and have them stand in a circle around the leaves. Tell them about the goodies hidden in the pile and then give a Ready, Set, Go and make sure you are out of the way.

    There is no single winner for this game but all of the kids get to keep what they find.
