This fun Thanksgiving decoding activity will keep your kids busy (and laughing) while dinner is prepared.
I learned a long time ago that one of the tricks to keeping my kids busy while Thanksgiving dinner is being prepared is to have activities to keep them entertained. I have a huge round up of coloring and activity pages I put together years ago and thought it would be fun to add to it with my own Thanksgiving activity page: decoding secret messages (aka jokes).
My kids love coloring pages, but they are getting a little older so having something different to entertain them will be great. They were so excited as they watched me put these pages together and I know your kids will love them too! You could also use these decoding activity pages as a fun Thanksgiving break activity for kids. If you homeschool, you could even incorporate it into your homeschool unit!
To print off your copy, you simply need to enter your email below and it will be sent to you as an easy to print PDF file.
You can find the answers to each of the Thanksgiving decoding activities below:
Joke 1: What is blue and covered with feathers? A turkey holding its breath!
Joke 2: What is a turkey’s favorite dessert? Peach gobbler!
Joke 3: What’s the best dance to do on Thanksgiving? The turkey trot!
You can also start a new Thanksgiving tradition this year with your own Book of Thanks! This will be our 5th year doing it and it’s so much fun to look back on. Read more about it here and get ideas on how to create your own.
Remember to check out the awesome round up of Thanksgiving coloring and activity pages I put together here to go along with this fun decoding activity!
