We love the game Don’t Eat Pete. This Easter edition has been a huge hit with my kids and all the neighbor kids.
I love it because it’s simple, quick, and the kids can play it by themselves. The kids love it because it’s super fun and they get to eat snacks or treats as they play.
How to play:
- Cover all the Easter eggs with a little treat (m&ms, chocolate chips, raisins, marshmallows, goldfish, etc.).
- Have one player leave the room or turn around or close their eyes, just something so they can’t see. While that person isn’t looking, the rest of the players choose a space to be “Pete,” or in this case, an Easter egg to be “it.”
- When the player comes back or turns around, they start picking spaces by eating the treat in that space. When the player picks up the treat on the space designated as “Pete,” or in this case, the Easter egg, the rest of the group yells, “Don’t eat the Easter Egg!”
- Now it’s the next player’s turn. Fill up the spaces with treats again and start over with someone else.
Of course my kids loved playing this game with jelly beans. If my kids haven’t had a good day (i.e. they’ve been whining or fighting), then they have to play with “healthier” snacks like goldfish, raisins, nuts, etc.
This game is also fun for playdates, parties, school, and church.
It’s a great time-filler for when you want to keep kids happy and busy but don’t want to invest hours.
I hope you can use and enjoy this Don’t Eat Pete Easter game!
