Don’t Eat Pete is one of our most favorite family games…EVER. We play it quite often for family night, and I thought it would be fun to create a fun Halloween version!
If you’re looking for a fun and easy classroom party idea, this is one for your list! Kids of all ages love this, making it perfect for any grade. With very little prep, it also makes it an easy choice. Whether it’s for home or school, it’s very popular with anyone who plays!
Here’s how it works:
(Print the file below, the laminate for best results. You’ll also need a bag of Halloween candy, like Skittles, M&M’s, marshmallows, or other small candy.)
1. Have all the players sit around in a circle around the “board”. Place a piece of candy on each picture (not the words or arrows).
2. The first player will turn his back to the group, while everyone else decides and quietly points to which picture will be “Pete”. When it’s been decided, the player turns around. They point from picture to picture, trying to avoid “Pete”. Each one they guess that’s not “Pete”, they get to keep that candy. Once you they point to the image everyone has chosen, their turn ends, and everyone says, “DON’T EAT PETE”!!!
Play as many rounds as you like!
