Orange County District Consultant Stephanie shares three great arts and crafts projects using Peeps
A note from Stephanie: Peeps are the delicious and absolutely adorable marshmallow candies! You’ll be thrilled to create these easy crafts with your kids. I have surrounded my home with these tasty delights and I actually enjoy Peeps even more once they’ve sat out for a while, rather than fresh out of the box!
Peep Wine Charms
Tie a colorful string or thin ribbon onto the middle of a toothpick and insert through the center of a Peep chick or bunny.
Pull string through to the other side and tie a bow around the base of a wine or champagne glass.
Choose different shapes and colors for the most variety, depending on how many guests you will be entertaining.
Keep your eye on your Peep charm during your special celebration and never lose your glass!
Easter Tree decorated with Yellow Peeps
Find some dried branches on the ground around your neighborhood, or your own backyard.
Spray paint and let dry overnight, or keep au natural.
Arrange branches in a tall vase.
Prop colorful Peeps on the branches and decorate the table for added festive flair.
Grab a box of Peep chicks or bunnies and insert a festive plastic straw through the center of the Peep – then wipe the straw clean with a damp paper towel.
Decorate your favorite plastic cups with these playful straws and set the kids table for sweet fun!
