Don't Eat Pete: Spring Shapes

Don't Eat Pete is a favorite game in our house!  My kids love it and I've also used it during preschool and activity days...again they love it!  This time I decided to add an extra element of learning.  My little guy is working on shape recognition and how cute are these little 2d shape chicks!?!  If you've never played here's a quick how to:  Print off the board game...cardstock works best.  Place one piece of candy (skittles, jelly beans, Cheerios, or whatever you have) on each chick.  Send one person to out of the room and quietly decided which one is going to be Pete for that round.  Lets say you pick the one in the center.  Have the person come back into the room and eat one of the pieces of candy off each character UNTIL they pick up the one chosen as Pete (in this case the one in the center).  When they pick up this candy everyone yells "Don't eat Pete!" and their turn ends.  Add candy to the ones taken on the last turn and play as many times as you want picking a new Pete each time. With this board once Pete is discovered have them tell you the shape.  Super simple and so much fun!
