Thanksgiving Make a Word

For Ages 5+ with some knowledge how to spell.

On a sheet of paper write or print out "THANKSGIVING" in large letters. Give each child a sheet of paper and see how many words they can make using just the letters in Thanksgiving. You can make a word with two "g's" because there are two g's in Thanksgiving but you can only the other letters once. Work in teams with younger children so they can be a part of it.
