I’m really pushing it here! The 4th of July is tomorrow for all of my stateside friends, and one of the hardest things about this holiday for many is waiting for the firework show to start! This year I will be bringing this Don’t Eat Pete game and some candy for them, so they can play while they wait. My kids still love playing this game and love when I make a new themed printable for the holidays. You can see all of the current ones by searching Don’t Eat Pete in the search bar above.
Which is why I love this game, it involves eating candy, and seasonal candy at that. Red, White and Blue M&M’s just taste better than other ones this time of year, don’t they? Just in case you haven’t played before, or need a refresh on the rules, I’ve got you covered.
Rules of the game Don’t Eat Pete:
Choose one person to be “it” and they leave the room, or turn away.
While they are gone, the remaining players quietly choose a square to be Pete and cover all squares with candy of choice.
Call the other player back into the room.
That player chooses one square at a time and eats the candy off the square, as long as it’s not Pete, the player keeps going.
If the player takes the candy off of Pete, everyone yells “DON’T EAT PETE!” and that players turn is over.
Choose a new person to be “it” and play continues until everyone has had a turn, or until you run out of candy! 🙂
I always make a 4×6 version in color that you can print off at your favorite photo processing place (mine is Costco), you can print a bunch for pennies and hand them out to your kid’s class or put in little goodie bags with a bag of candy as a party favor. I also have made a full sheet coloring book version for even more fun times. 🙂
