Don't Eat the Leprechaun!

You know the game 'Don't Eat Pete' ? Well, this is my St. Patty's Day version of it.

Click here or on the picture to download.

Never heard of 'Don't Eat Pete' ? No worries, here's the directions for a good ol' time!

Send the first player away from the game board or into another room, then have the remaining players choose which one of the nine people on the game board will be "Pete" for the round. Place one M&M in each square of the game board. Have the first player come back and begin picking and eating M&M's from the game board. As soon as the player tries to pick "Pete" everyone yells "Don't Eat Pete!" The player keeps all the M&M's picked up before trying to get Pete. Refill the game board and play again with the next player.

You can use cereal or other small snack foods as well as any type of small candy for this game.

Also, to involve the whole class I copy this game board onto a transparency sheet and use my overhead.

What are some of your fun St. Patty's Day games?

Very cute game board! I will have to use this on St. Pattys day thank you! I have my kids make leprechaun traps at home with their family. I send the instructions home the first week in March and have them bring them in the day before the 17th. Before they leave they set there traps in preparation of catching the leprechaun. :) Then I "mess" the room up and leave a gold chocolate coin on there desk from the leprechaun with a note attached to the whiteboard. They LOVED it last year! I will post the ws I send home next week.
