Let’s talk Peeps! You either love them or you hate them, right? They are not my favorite Easter candy but, my girls LOVE them.I decided to do an open-ended activity with the girls today that allowed them to construct a house for their peeps any way that they like.
I gave the girls Graham Crackers, FLUFF (marshmallow glue pretty much) , PEEPS , edible Easter grass (made out of coconut flakes and neon green dye) and the girls added M&M Easter eggs. They each were given these materials to make their own PEEP house anyway they like.
My youngest loves making the “Edible Grass”.
We did it Shake and Bake style. All you need to do is put coconut flakes in a gallon ziploc bag and add about 4 to 5 drops of neon green food coloring and seal the bag closed. Then, the fun part… shake it up! You will have a beautiful green grass to use to decorate cupcakes, cakes or make Peep houses like we did!
See how to make it in the video below:
They came out super cute and the girls loved them and so do I. A really fun activity for you and your kids to do together.
*My fellow parents, I will warn you that this activity is super sticky, super messy but definitely fun and a memorable activity for your kids.*
Look at how happy my daughter is with those sticky Fluff hands. : )
These houses will look so cute as pictures on your social media:
Happy Easter and Happy Spring from our family to yours!
