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.
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!
