Now, this is an awesome way to burn off those Thanksgiving calories.

Julianne and Derek Hough's family Thanksgiving dance war is back, with Kate Hudson, Maria Menounos, Cara Delevingne and more stars battling it out with dance-filled video clips on Instagram.

The family's dance challenge first hit Instagram last Thanksgiving, with Maria and Mark Ballas and his family among celebs joining the fun.

This year, the Houghs kicked off the dance battle, killing it with Julianne and Derek hitting a coordinated routine before the Safe Haven star spins away and dances with a family member dressed in a turkey costume. "TURKEY MAN SAYS DANCE!!!!," Julianne captioned the video.

Then came the Ballas family, who cut a rug in an open field, with Mark leading the way. "This is war part 1...Where you at," Mark captioned the video, calling out Derek, Alfonso Ribeiro, Julianne, Janel Parrish and more stars.

Next, it was Kate Hudson's turn, who danced in her home with pal Cara Delevingne, brother Oliver Hudson, her stepdad Kurt Russell and her mom Goldie Hawn. "We gladly accept @juleshough #thanksgivingdancewars challenge Let's make this happen @caradelevingne #oliverhudson #wyattrussell #bostonrussell #pa #dancebattle #UptownFunk And that's my Mom counting us in in the background PART ONE...," she captioned the first of four videos.

Maria also joined the fun, busting out a blonde bob and doing a sexy crawl on a dinner table before dancing with her family and friends. "Happy #ThanksGivingDanceWars everybody!!! Check out this hot freakin' video to #BANGBANG we are killing it. 💋 Can you top that? @markballas @juleshough @derekhough #DanceVideos #ThanksGiving #ArianaGrande #JessieJ #NickiMinaj #DanceItOUT #OneHotNumber," she captioned the video.

And before the wars were over, Nina Dobrev posted her own last-minute video, dancing on the Dallas Cowboys football field with her BFF Jessica Szohr. "Better late than never ... Dallas Cowboys stadium was our dance floor and living room for this years ThanksGiving Dance wars. Romo wanted to be a part of it with us, he was ready to twerk it like its hot, but he was otherwise engaged.
