Fun Activities for Your Petaluma Thanksgiving

October 10, 2017

The holidays are soon approaching and we honestly cannot wait for Thanksgiving dinner. Feasting on tons of food is probably one of our favorite holiday activities during the holidays here in Petaluma. Who doesn’t love stuffing themselves with tons of yummy comfort food? But before you fill yourself with stuffing and pumpkin pie, why not partake in some fun Thanksgiving day activities with the entire family first?

Photo Booth

No need to rent a professional photo booth because the truth is creating your own is simple and much more affordable. Print out your own Thanksgiving themed props or create your own using some help from the little kiddos in the family. After all your props have been created, setting up your booth is simple. Simply pin a bed sheet to a well lit wall for your photo booth backdrop. The picture taking itself can be done on any type of camera; Polaroid, digital, or camera phone, whichever is more convenient.

Decorative Mini Pumpkins

Carving pumpkins can be a messy fiasco, but that’s why decorating pumpkins is a great alternative. Before your Thanksgiving festivities begin, gather everyone to decorate their own mini pumpkin. Use anything from paint markers, glitter pens, and stickers. Use these cute decorative pumpkins as a “name card” for your guests’ seats at the dinner table.


Print out a variety of Bingo playing cards with different Thanksgiving themed images in place of the traditional numbers. Hand these out to your guests before playing a round of Bingo and have everyone color and decorate their own playing card.
