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.
Supplies for 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!
