Don't Eat Pete!

"Don't Eat Pete" is one of my kids favorite games.  Probably because it involves eating candy...just a guess though.
Here is what you need to make your own game:
  • A paper with 16 different pictures on it - each picture in a separate box (you could even give your kids a paper divided into 16 squares and have them make their own).  I laminated mine to protect it from my kid's sticky, slobbery fingers.
  • Some little candies like M&M's or Skittles.
  • Some kids who like candy...hard to find, I know.  
The object of the game is to eat as many M&M's (or little candies) as you can, but Don't Eat Pete!

Directions:  Place one M&M (or small candy) on each of the sixteen squares.  Select a person to be the M&M Monster and send him/her out of the room.  The remaining players then select one square to be “Pete”.  (Do not tell the Monster which square is “Pete”—it’s a secret!)  When the Monster returns, he eats the M&M’s one at a time but the minute he touches “Pete” the group yells “Don’t Eat Pete”!  His turn is then over and another person is selected to be the M&M Monster.  Play continues until all have had a turn.

Here is a printable copy of our "Don't Eat Pete" if you want to use this one...just print it double sided so that the directions are on the back.  This makes a fun gift and party favors as well...have fun!

My mom used to do this game with us with 13 squares, representing the articles of faith. Once they "eat Pete," we all had to say that article of faith. Totally doing this for activity days tonight!
