First of all print the playing board.
Print Here: Thanksgiving Don’t Eat Pete
Here’s how to play: Cover each character with the candy or marshmallows or snack crackers. Choose one person to be “It”, and send them out of the room. The rest of the group chooses which character on the game board to be “Pete.” The “It” person comes back and starts to eat the candy off the board in whatever order they want. When they reach to grab the “Pete” all the other players yell “DON’T EAT PETE” and that “It” person isn’t it anymore. Choose a new “It” and repeat until all the children have had a turn to be “It.”
