Printable Halloween Game "Don't Eat Frank!"

In elementary school, there are 2 days each year that leave the kids {and teachers!} completely wiped out: Halloween and Valentine's Day. Not even the day before Christmas Break can compare! Halloween usually means class parties and games and treats and costumes and...phew! I hope this will ease some stress for you amazing "Room Moms", teachers, or parents! 


It's played just like Don't Eat Pete. **Edited to Add** Directions are found below! You can use candy corn, cereal pieces or anything you want to mark the spaces on the grid. Don't be fooled - this is not just for Preschoolers! One of my incredible Room Moms (Hi, Christi!) brought this for my 2nd graders and it was a hit!

"Don't Eat Frank!": How to Play the Game

1. Place one piece of candy or whatever marker you choose in each square.
2. Have one child out of the group leave the room.
3. The other children decide which square will be "Frank" for that game. It can be any one, but only one.
4. The child comes back in the room and takes one candy at a time, until he reaches for the one designated as "Frank"....
5. The rest of the children say, "DON'T EAT FRANK!"
6. Play starts over with another person leaving the room, the grid is all filled, and another "Frank" is chosen,
7. I've heard some play with the rule that if you pick "Frank" very first, you get all the candies! Fun!

Here are some other fun Halloween Printables for Kids!
