This year’s Thanksgiving will be extra special for my family and I’m sure many other families as well. I am hoping that by the time Thanksgiving comes around, the craziness that has been this year so far will be mostly behind us.

With starting off the year being away from all of our friends, family and activities we love and enjoy, it would be extra wonderful if by Thanksgiving we were able to all come together once again.

The real meaning of Thanksgiving is to celebrate what we are grateful for. I know that this year so far has shown me all of the little things that I was taking for granted that I would so love to have back right now.

And what better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than to play fun games with your friends and family. Whether that be in person or over video chat!

Today, I’m happy to share with you this fun free printable Thanksgiving crossword puzzle. This crossword puzzle features 10 clues to help you fill in the spaces below. It’s a great activity to play while you are waiting for dinner to be ready.. or while waiting for dessert (in my opinion the very best part of any meal!).

All you need to do is run the crossword puzzle through the lamination machine and then use dry erase markers to fill in the puzzle. Afterwards, you can easily wipe off the answers and reuse the game again next year.
