Easter Peep Houses

sm peep house header

I saw these Easter Peep Houses on Yesterfood.  So stinkin’ cute!  Every year at Christmas time my kids look forward to decorating gingerbread houses…it is one of their favorite traditions…so I knew they would love make these Peep houses.  They were so easy to prepare for…only a few items were needed, and the kids had so much fun adding their own creativity to their Peep House.

I love how our Easter Peep Houses turned out.  They are so cute to display through the month.  Or to use as a centerpiece.  I love seeing their little creations around my house.  Add the Easter Peep Houses to a cake stand…and place on your counter.

What you will need to make Easter Peep Houses:

-Graham Crackers (5 halves per house-look at picture below)

-Paper plates (I like colored ones…green or yellow…or pink)

-Peeps  (We used bunnies and chicks)

-Edible Easter grass (Found near the Easter candy in the grocery store…just learned of edible grass this year!- The possibilities are endless with it!)

-Jelly Beans

-Larger Easter Egg Candy

-Any other candy you would like

-Hot GLUE!!!  The SECRET WEAPON!

Secret weapon…Hot Glue!  Before the kids decorate…I glue the houses together.  You can see in the photo above how I constructed each house using hot glue.  This does the trick!

Then the kids can add the frosting, jellybeans, edible grass, and Peeps!  Such a fun, adorable Easter and Spring Craft!
