Don't Eat Pete!

Thanks, Hannah, for passing on the link to the game "Don't Eat Pete!" It's a free download, and an incredibly simple game. When I first read the instructions, I thought, where's the 'game'? What is the point? And then it dawned on me: eating m&m's and yelling DON'T EAT PETE! is the point. And I thought to myself, "Oooh, yeaaaah, my boys are gonna love this." Chocolate and yelling.

Not only did they love it, they were incredulous at the fact that it was almost an m&m free for all. And it was so funny waiting to pounce on the person who was it as they reached for 'Pete' and then yelling at the top of our lungs. There's nothing 'educational' or even "edutainmental" about the game; it was just plain, three-year-old-on-the-edge-of-his-seat-and-yelling fun.


  1. Sounds like great fun and memories. That's just as important as the learning at times! We some times use m&m's for math time and my girls end up silly as all get out and then way overeat them.....

    Have fun while they are still young!

  2. Mmmm ... SO GLAD you had fun! Sounds like yours was just as rowdy as ours!
