DIY Thankgiving/Fall Pictionary

  For the last couple of years I have been making our own pictionary game cards.  Halloween, Summer, Back to School, ect. and they have been a HUGE hit.  This year my husband and I are hosting Thanksgiving and we are getting our game faces on for this years pictionary!  I have found the easiest way to make your own cards and it's pretty inexpensive.  The hardest part is coming up with words or phrases but once you have those it's cake (or should I say it's pumpkin pie?  humm food for thought).  Anyways, this is how I did it and I hope that you try it too.

What you need:
1.  White labels
2.  Card stock of your choice of color
3.  Stickers of whatever theme or event your doing

How To:
1.  Make a list of words, phrases, places ect. that relate to your event or theme.  I just google what my event is and put "words associated with...." it seems to help.
2.  Cut your cardstock into 3 1/4 inches by 4 3/4 inches.  You can make them whatever size you want this is just the size I use.
3.  Write or type* your event on one label and a word or phrase on another.  Center the label on each side of the card and stick it on.
4.  Place your stickers on the card any way you want.  This would be fun for little kids that may be too young to play but can still have fun with it.

  * If you use the labels that you can put in your printer it would make this faster.  I always hand write them because I bought a GIANT pack of the small single sheets (the ones that won't go in a printer) and I still have them.  Just follow the instructions that you can find on the back or insert to fit your printer program.

  The Finished Product:

  Let me know if you do this, or if your family and friends play other games comment below and let me know.  Like I said we have a total blast.

  1. YAY! How fun! My family does this too (as I am sure you know). We also did a special Disney themed pictionary game to announce a Disney trip to my husband's niece and nephew.
