Give me some amazing ideas for our family Thanksgiving/reunion/jamboree!

My parents and several siblings and spouses are renting two large houses Thanksgiving week for 10 adults and 11 children (ranging in age from 3 to 19). We love and adore each other, and we're all excited about this week. Help me think of things to do ahead of time or during that would be amazing.

Additional bits of info:
We're all musical and we'll be playing and singing just about every day/night.
This is happening in the woods of coastal Maine.
Not all of our immediate family siblings + kids can attend, so we want to do something to try to include them from afar.
Some of the kid cousins can get into the usual spats, and there is occasionally some ye olde family drama, that occurs in every family. We hope that having multiple houses will provide everyone a chance to run away.
At least one mom will be a week away from her due date, so physical activities like hikes are out for her.
Two newly married friends of one sibling are staying at b&b close by so they can attend the festivities.
