It’s time to get excited for St. Patrick’s Day with this fun and simple game that you can print off at home.Try this fun printable St. Patrick’s Don’t Eat Pete game.
I’ve shared all sort of Don’t Eat Pete games over the years, and I’m not sure why I haven’t done more.I’m trying to remedy that this year. The next holiday that I love that needs a Don’t Eat Pete printable is St. Patrick’s Day! Without further ado, I give you the St. Patrick’s Don’t Eat Pete printable game board!
This game can always be played with any small candies, but to go with the St. Patty’s holiday theme, I thought it would be fun to do gold coins (affiliate link), or green jelly beans (affiliate link), or even any green small candy you can find. Later this week look for my St. Patrick’s Day Dessert board that will feature a bunch of green themed candy ideas that could be used with this game board too.
How do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? I love to go all in because I love green! So I dress my kids in green (and me), then we usually have some green food and this year, we will be playing this St. Patrick’s Don’t Eat Pete game too!
