Fun Things To Do After Thanksgiving Dinner

ThanksgivingEver find yourself looking for fun things to do after Thanksgiving dinner? We’ve thrown together some cool ideas to help you get out and about on one of those most wonderful days of the year.

# 1 – Go to the movies!

Many film studios wait until late in the year to release productions, knowing that this is primarily when people are in the mood for a movie. Not only do we recommend going to see a movie after Thanksgiving dinner, but see a comedy and bring the whole family.

# 2 – Play games!

Board games for the kids, Texas Hold ‘Em for the parents.

# 3 – Take a hike!

If weather is permitting and you can make it outside before sundown, there is nothing like taking a hike with your relatives. Plus, this will give you a chance to walk off the huge meal you just ate.

# 4 – Decorate for Christmas!

If you are the practical type, why not enlist your guests to help you decorate for Christmas? It can be fun to put up Christmas lights and plus, it gets you outside. Or you could just use something like this to get rid of your guests, which is probably more likely.
