This week, we are featuring our beautiful Sobella Girl, Tatiana. Her tips for An Active Girl’s Guide to Holiday Eating made us feel so inspired to stay active and enjoy our holidays, whether eating our favorite holiday dish or spending time with family.
Speaking of family, Sobella Wear is a family-owned and operated clothing line from Miami, FL and the holidays are just another reason for us to celebrate. We are so thankful for the opportunity to launch a clothing line that perfectly balances our love for style and our need for comfortable girls’ activewear, but most importantly, we are thankful for the time we get to spend with our family.
“For thanksgiving my family has a potluck, so each family brings a plate of their choice (usually their favorite). During this time we all sit and catch up. I always suggest playing family games and they usually listen to me and we have a blast.” – Tatiana
Thankfully, Tatiana has given us a list of her favorite family games to play during this holiday season.
Coming up with goofy words, objects, and fun movies for the family to re-enact is one of our faves. We make sure everyone gets a chance to show us their moves while acting out a word. Hey, it’s kind of like dancing, and I bet getting off the couch and moving around doesn’t hurt staying healthy for the holidays either.
At our family gatherings, our cousins are anywhere from in their 20’s to 5 years old (Awww) and UNO is a great card game that anyone from all ages can play. (Plus, it’s also fun to gang up on your cousins or your grandma….oops!).
Our grandma’s favorite game is Rummy. It’s quick and easy…and kind of gets a little competitive. But in a good way! If you’re just starting out, a quick google search of “Rummy” will give you the rules (don’t worry, there aren’t many).
4. Parame La Mano (Stop My Hand)
This is a timed game that involves thinking quickly on your feet. You have to pick 5 categories. Then you write out all the letters in the alphabet. Someone has to pick a random letter, and for 1 minute you write down all the things you can think of that start with that letter in the selected category. Need help with how to play? This article can help. It is a lot like Scattegories and it is a blast.
We hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving and get the chance to spend time with your family. Let us know how you feel about the games, or if there are other games your family plays that we would enjoy as well. Happy Thanksgiving from Sobella Wear. We love you!
