Easter is right around the corner! I feel like we just barely past a holiday and now its time to get ready for another one. Have you ever played “Don’t Eat Pete?” I remember playing it all the time when I was little. It was one of my favorite party games. It is so easy to play and to teach to the kids. They love it, and it teaches them good sportsmanship at the same time. I needed to take pics of the game board to post on my blog, so I decided to use some of my kids playing the game. They LOVED it! They couldn’t wait to have their turn and to get to eat the treats on the board. I asked my little guy to be a model for me and he could not help but make a thousand funny faces before actually looking into the camera and smiling. I don’t know if any of you have kids like this, but that boy thinks he is hilarious and whatever he can do to make people laugh, he will do it.
For those of you who have not played “Don’t eat Pete” (or in this case, “Don’t eat Peter Rabbit”) before, here are the basics of the game:
1. Put a piece of candy on each space of the “Don’t eat Peter Rabbit” board.
2. Have one of the kids leave the room.
3. While he or she is gone, have everyone else help choose one of the spaces to be the Peter Rabbit space.
4. Have the child come back in the room.
5. He or she then starts eating candy off the board one piece at a time.
6. When he/she gets to candy in the Peter Rabbit space, everyone yells: “Don’t eat Peter Rabbit!”
7. The child is then done eating candy and it is someone else’s turn.
It’s very simple, but the kids love it! I recommend printing the game board on cardstock and laminating it to make it more durable.
Also, a special thanks to Pretty Grafik Design for allowing me to use their amazing graphics on the game board! Download the “Don’t Eat Peter Rabbit” Easter game printable PDF below.
