  • Remind everyone to bring their own pillow and sleeping bag/blanket.
  • Try to give everyone their own space to retreat to or relax in.
  • Plan Thanksgiving games and activities for all ages — from toddlers to adults — to make your your Thanksgiving get-together more memorable and fun.
  • Give out little favor packs to the guests with fuzzy holiday socks, toothbrush and toothpaste, glow sticks or mini flashlights, etc.
  • Have a relax room with quiet music and dim lights or area with a movie or football game for people who just want to chill or are feeling overstimulated.
  • Invite everyone to change into their pajamas or relaxed clothes after Thanksgiving dinner.
  • Head outside for some outdoor Thanksgiving activities (and help kids run off all that dessert sugar!).
  • Have everyone write in a holiday journal their favorite part of the day (and add to it every holiday each year!).
  • Make it the ultimate sleepover for the kids with a teepee tent sleepover or one room where they can build a fort or spread out their sleeping bags.
  • Plan some late night sleepover snacks or pull out the Thanksgiving leftovers later for those night owls who like to stay up.
  • Make an easy breakfast for the morning after, like a crockpot breakfast casserole and hot chocolate bar.
