Don’t Eat the Hero – Superhero Version of Don’t Eat Pete, Free Printable!

Have you ever played the game “Don’t Eat Pete”? Are you throwing a superhero party? Well, now you can have both of those at the same time with this awesome free printable we put together for you!  All you need to do, is print it off, glue to card stock if you want to add some support to the thin paper, or print it on cardstock, and small candy to use on the squares (think skittles, mike and ikes, smarties).

If you haven’t played Don’t Eat Pete, here is how you play. Players gather around the board in a circle. Place a piece of candy on each square on the board. The first player turns around so they can’t see the board while another player picks a square.  Do this quietly, by just pointing to avoid the turned player from hearing. Once a square has been selected, the player will turn around and begin taking a piece of candy off each square. They can put it right in their mouths, or hold them to eat later. When they select the square that was chosen, the other players yell “Don’t eat Pete!” or in this case, “Don’t eat (whichever hero you choose).”

So here is your printable. I wouldn’t recommend going any bigger then a sheet of paper with this one as it will begin to be grainy.

To print, click on the image below and save it to your computer. You can then print it from there. Enjoy!

Cut the flour game, Family Reunion Ideas, Party games,  Games for a family reunion #Games, #FamilyReunionIdeasAre you looking for a fun but simple game to play at your family reunion or party?  Cut the flour game is quick and easy, and budget friendly too.  We played this game at our reunion this summer.  Both the kids and the adults had fun playing it.  But after we were done the kids played with the flour for HOURS…. who knew flour could be so entertaining.

Cut the flour game, Family Reunion Ideas, Party games,  Games for a family reunion #Games, #FamilyReunionIdeas

To play this game you need:

  • 2-10 players
  • 2 butter knives (plastic or metal)
  • 1 cup measuring cup
  • 1 cookie sheet
  • 1 -2 cups of flour (extra for spills)
  • 1 dime

Cut the flour game, Family Reunion Ideas, Party games,  Games for a family reunion #Games, #FamilyReunionIdeasPack the flour into the measuring cup. Set it on the cookie sheet and slowly take the cup off  to allow the flour to come out. Set a dime  on top of the flour carefully. Take turns cutting away sections of flour. Have everyone take a turn cutting away the flour, the first person to make the dime fall loses the game and has to pick it out with their teeth.  Pack the flour back in the cup, and set the game back up to play again.

Water Pinaqua – Thrifty Summer Fun

If you are having a summer party and want to have some thrifty games for the kids (and adults) to play, this is a great idea!  Beat the heat with the  Water Pinaqua!

It’s like a pinata, only full of water.  We did this for a recent cub scout activity and it was a hit!  We had a few different games, and this was by far the most popular!

Save yourself some headache if you are going to do this though, and have someone holding the pinaqua on a long stick.  Trying to tie it to the tree while full of water was time consuming and really just a pain.  This way we were able to tie the super heavy balloon full of water before it was up in the air.

You will need:

Balloons (regular not water)

A hose

A stick to tie the balloon on

Someone to hold the pinaqua up

A stick to smack the balloon with

A scarf or something to cover the person’s eyes

Begin by preparing a few balloons.  We just got a couple of packages of the 9 inch balloons.  Anything larger would be really heavy.  Fill them with water and tie them off.  When you are ready, tie one to the end of your stick.  Now, you play it just like you would a pinata and let them go nuts trying to pop this thing!

So simple, so inexpensive, and a total blast to play! Be ready to get wet!

*Side note: check out how cool that balloon looks as it gets hit.  Awesome shot!
