I am addicted to Pinterest. I wish I had this available to me when my kids were young. I would have been Betty Crocker/Martha Stewart/Susie Homemaker all rolled into one. I would have been the ultimate Stepford mom. Oh, sure, I would never have worn a dress, but I was an awesome stay-at-home mom for many years.
So, while working on the previous blog post on colored peeps, I came across creativity with a capital “C” when it came to what people do with Easter peeps. The fake ones this time.
I can honestly say that I have never tried a peep. I guess it is made of marshmallow, right? I just have no desire. But, look how I can decorate with them since I don’t eat them.
I can put them in a vase. I will do this next year. Except, won’t their little bodies leave marshamallow imprints on the glass? I mean, they are smooshed up against the glass? Sigh. I guess I could actually wash it out when I am done with it.
I can make a little strip club for them
They can be made into a wreath. Just don’t put it on your front door. Especially if the sun shines right on it. Well, then again, go ahead.
You can make a political or religious statement
You could make a topiary and stick in the middle of your table as the centerpiece.
Ok, now we are talking. You can make peeps jello shots. I may want to try one now.
You can perform a science experiment with peeps. I am soooo doing this with my fourth graders next Easter.
You can enter a fun contest.
omg the sugar rush
Or you can melt the little shits and put them in your rice krispie treats
Or make a sunflower cake
Wedge them on your favorite beverage
Or they could occupy space
Or you could just admire them from the store shelves.
All in all, peeps seem to have found their place with bunnies and baskets and eggs each Easter. One of these days I will try a peep. Maybe.
