I am busy planning a Lego party for one of the munchkins. He happens to be a big fan of the Don’t Eat Pete games so I decided to create a Don’t Eat the Lego Man! version.
If you aren’t familiar with these games here is a quick rundown.
You place a small candy on each image. Then while one person is out of the room the group decided which image is “it”. Once this is decided you call the player out of the room to return. Then they begin eating the pieces of candy one at a time from the board. However, when they go to take the candy from the “it” picture everyone yells “DON’T EAT LEGO MAN!” Time to replace the candy and let someone else have a turn.
At the bottom of the post I gave links to where most of the clip art for the game came from. I gathered the images and dropped them into Photoshop to create the game board. If you ware wanting to know how to make the Lego type font I recommend this video:
If anyone is interested in a copy of my Don’t Eat the Lego Man! for personal use only leave me a comment and I will send it your way shortly.
