4 Fun Ideas for Thanksgiving Campers
As we all head to Thanksgiving and our last fun weekend of the season, the Thanksgiving and Christmas Celebration Weekend (November 23rd to 26th) is fast approaching! Meanwhile, across the entire state of Louisiana, parking lots and grocery stores are packed with shoppers getting ready to celebrate the holidays. Amidst the busyness of preparation, YOGI BEAR™ has been reflecting on how grateful he is for campers like you! Yogi simply cannot wait to celebrate Thanksgiving with families here at YOGI BEAR’S JELLYSTONE PARK™. While packing suitcases, camping gear, and planning meals, be sure to prepare some fun, holiday-themed crafts and snacks to enjoy together as a family.
Kids will love these four fun ideas involving Thanksgiving snacks and crafts, especially if they are celebrating the holiday at the campgrounds:
- Fun and games: Looking for a festive game to play with the kids this Thanksgiving? This “Stuff the Turkey” game from Kid Friendly Things to Do is sure to be a hit with your family! Create a turkey using a paper bag and balls using wads of paper. Then, kids can take turns trying to “stuff the turkey.”
- Express your gratitude: Print these gratitude-themed cootie catchers before leaving for the campgrounds. On Thanksgiving, fold them to create cootie catchers. While enjoying Thanksgiving dinner around the campfire, take turns answering questions and discussing the things for which you are grateful and the feelings thankfulness brings. For example, “Think of a memory. Why are you grateful for that memory?” Bonus—there are also printable with Thanksgiving jokes.
- Thanksgiving flavors to enjoy around the campfire: Stay warm beside the campfire while enjoying these tasty turkey cheddar sliders from Shugary Sweets. Cranberry, turkey, Hawaiian rolls…all on one delicious sandwich! Make them ahead of time to keep clean-up simple.
- Snacks to satisfy the sweet tooth: From turkeys to pilgrim hats, there are many adorable snack ideas from the blog, Belly Full. These are bite-sized, so the family can enjoy them throughout the day, and none of the recipes require baking. Ideas include “acorns” made out of Hershey’s Kisses, Oreo turkeys, and more!
YOGI BEAR™ is looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving with families here at the campgrounds and he wishes families across Louisiana a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving. Enjoy time with loved ones, and remember to be thankful!
While YOGI BEAR™ and his friends will go into hibernation after this weekend, there are some great deals for those who want to camp this December. Make a reservation and reap the benefits of spending time in the great outdoors to counter the stresses of the holiday hustle and bustle.
