Family-Friendly Games to Play at Thanksgiving

Family-Friendly Games to Play at Thanksgiving | Tropical Ford Blog | Orlando, FL

A game of two-hand touch football outback after everyone has digested their meals is the traditional way to have some fun at Thanksgiving, but not everyone is crazy about playing football, especially after eating a massive dinner. Here are some fun games to play this Thanksgiving that the whole family will love:

  • Pin the Feather on the Turkey: Get crafty with construction paper to make a beautiful Thanksgiving turkey — only missing its feathers. Following the rules of Pin the Tail on the Donkey, let the little ones attempt to return the feathers to the turkey in time for the holidays.
  • Thanksgiving Mad Libs: Remember how fun it is to play Mad Libs, filling in the blanks with silly words to create a story? Consider creating your own story with missing nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs, then letting everyone suggest words to complete the story. Then read it aloud.
  • Thanksgiving Relay Course: Set up space in the backyard for a fun relay course, breaking into separate teams. Sample legs for the relay could include a pumpkin roll, a sack race, a pumpkin pie eating contest, and a corn shucking race. Whichever team finishes all their legs of the relay course first, wins!

These are just a few ideas to help keep the kids entertained while dinner is in the oven. At Tropical Ford, we’re excited to ring in the holidays with our local community.

Valentine’s Day Date Ideas on a Budget

Valentine's Day Date Ideas - Tropical Ford BlogValentine’s Day is generally the time for a major romantic gesture, but not everyone has the budget for it. Fortunately, the most romantic day of the year doesn’t require a bundle of cash. Check out these thoughtful Valentine’s Day date ideas that won’t break the bank.

Leave Messages around the House

Find an inexpensive pack of Valentine’s Day cards and write a custom message on each one. Once you’re done, leave them around the house for your loved one to find over the next few days (or weeks, depending on how many you make). If you waited until the last minute, writing your messages on sticky notes will do in a pinch.

Picnic in the Park

Of all the classic Valentine’s Day date ideas to ever make their way to the mainstream, a picnic in the park has to be one of the most affordable. All you need is a blanket, basket, and some food. Simple snacks will do just fine if you plan on going in the midafternoon. Bonus: if you go in the evening, you can watch the sunset with your loved one.

Make a Treasure Hunt

Set your loved one on a treasure hunt. Leave notes and clues around the house, work, or in the car. Have the trail lead to a special, but affordable, present.
