Description: These 20 Thanksgiving themed open ended games reinforce accuracy/effort while targeting ANY skill. I personally love using these with speech & language mixed groups and articulation therapy. Have students perform a target skill/task to your liking X times to earn a turn at the game. These games are made for groups of 2-4. if you see a child individually, you can be the play partner! TO PLAY: Explain that each player will get a turn to drag & drop an item after performing X skill. The object of the game is to collect the most hidden items. On their turn, players should choose 1 item and drag it to the themed image in the middle of the screen. If that reveals a hidden item, they can drag it to their square. They may also uncover secret messages that shake up the game! Once all hidden items are revealed, the player(s) with the most items WINS! HERE’S A TIP: If you are using these for language therapy and want to build expressive language, share the screen but DO NOT share the mouse. This will force your students to articulate and describe which item they want you to drag for them! ** I will occasionally rearrange the hidden items and secret messages. Need help? Email me at
