Don’t Eat Pete!

Don’t Eat Pete is a fun game for home or school! I’ve been playing it since I was a little girl and it is definitely a family favorite. It’s been fun to share it with my own kids and students over the years.

This free download includes an Editable Sight Word Edition, the original version (which is perfect for Halloween or any occasion really), Valentine’s Day version, and St. Patrick’s Day version. These are all perfect for your classroom holiday parties! All you have to do is print and go! This download can be accessed in my FREE RESOURCE LIBRARY!

How to Play: Place a small treat (candy, cereal, goldfish, etc.) on each monster. Send “Player One” away from the room and have the remaining players choose which monster will be “Pete”. Then have “Player One” return and begin eating the treats, one at a time. As soon as “Player One” tries to eat the treat that is on the “Pete” monster, everyone will shout, “Don’t eat Pete!!” Their turn is over and they will stop eating the small treats. (Obviously the object of the game is to eat as many treats as you can!) Repeat until all players have had a turn.⁠ And believe me, there will be a lot of repeats!

Here’s an example of how you can edit Don’t Eat Pete Sight Word Edition. You can change the words to whatever you need your kids to work on. Before they eat a treat, they have to read the sight word!
