Take a Break: Peeps 2014/Egg Geodes

It’s that glorious time of the year-Peep Season! Definitely check out 2013  and 2012 options.

I’ve been doing this for several years now. After dark on the night before Easter, my husband and I “peep” our friends. One year we made Peepshi- Think Rice Krispie Treats, fruit leather and beheaded peeps and another year Peep wreaths.This year’s Peeping involves....Hm....never know whose reading the blog, so it will have to wait until Easter 2015 for a reveal. 

So the Peep activity for 2014 is Peep trees and topiary.
Styrofoam form: Using a cone or ball shape, start sticking peeps on with a toothpick. It’s not a bad idea to purchase your peeps a week in advance of your project. Take them out of their package and stick the tooth pick in. Let them “harden” for a few days. I’ve tried sticking pins in year old Peeps and they crumpled. If they’re too fresh, they can slide off the tooth pick. Gluing is also an option. Check out KQ’s Garden Peep Topiary for a good example of how to use different styles of Peeps plus other types of Easter candy. 

Tree Branch: Use a branch from your yard, park or wherever you can find one, and just stick the Peeps on one end.

Peep Bouquet Tree: Take a small pail and stick a Styrofoam form in it. Use wooden skewers and stick one end in the Peep and the other in the stryo. Peep bunnies work well for this project.

If you don’t find Peeps inspiring, make crystal egg geodes.
