While big screens and smart phones are taking games to the next level, it’s still nice to kick it old school and challenge your guests to some old fashion competitions.
Sometimes hosting a holiday event year after year can feel like more of a production than a celebration, am I right? If you’re like me then that includes hours of scrolling through the internet looking for new games to keep your guests entertained.
Word searches are always a great way to keep guests quiet yet entertained while you prepare dinner or begin cleaning up.
You may have already noticed that there are hundreds, if not thousands, of printable puzzles on the internet. There’s just one problem. None of them look like they were created in this century. What you need is a printable puzzle that will match the look and feel of your Thanksgiving decor perfectly. You put a lot of work into setting up for this event, so why ruin it with cheesy black and white puzzles with Clip Art graphics on them?
Word Searches for the Adult Table
Another question you could be asking yourself is: why are all of these puzzles centered around kids? Including word searches at the adult table is a great way to encourage friendly competition. It’s also another opportunity to hand out fun prizes… or even better, fun punishments. Maybe last one done is on dish duty? Or first three competitors to finish their puzzle don’t have to clean up at all! Get creative with it!

At only $1.99 for a 2 puzzle digital download, there’s no easier way to add a festive game to your table.
