I don’t know about you, but whenever I think of Easter, I think of PEEPS®–and vise versa. Ever since I was a kid, it wasn’t Easter if I didn’t have a package of PEEPS® awaiting me on Easter morning.
These days, there are a whole lot more PEEPS® options, and even though I’m not a kid, I still REALLY dig them–and there are a whole lot more options to love! Here are a few of the super fun ways we incorporated PEEPS® into our Easter!
PEEPS® themed Easter baskets are a super fun ( and delicious! ) way of celebrating one of my favorite holidays. My kids are major PEEPS® fanatics like me and I just know that they are going to be super thrilled to wake up Easter morning to the super yummy baskets that are not only filled with PEEPS® deliciousness, but PEEPS® themed non-edible gifts as well!
It’s sort of become a little bit of a tradition in our household to collect PEEPS® themed collectibles during the different holidays, and with all of the great options available, there are tons of fun goodies to gift and collect! Above, besides the edible goodies, we have a pair of PEEPS® earbuds, socks and a little mini-orange peep! These adorable collectibles are perfect for preserving the delicious memories of the super yum PEEPS® holiday goodness!
Another way we use PEEPS® in our holiday celebrations are using them on our super tasty baked treats. Below we sat the super tasty Party Cake Flavored PEEPS® a top a beautiful tie-dye cake, iced with green icing and green food colored coconut shreds to mimic grass. I think they turned out absolutely adorable and they tasted even better!! MMM! These were a huge hit with the entire family, not just the kids!
Last, but certainly not least, we created Easter goody baskets MADE with PEEPS® products! This is a super fun, easy idea that kids can get involved with! We simply super glued the boxes together ( I did this part ) and then had the kids stuff the basket full of goodies! We used our Mike and Ike and Hot Tamales bags of Jelly Beans in the bottom to boost the packages up to the top for better viewing–these Jelly Beans are also quite fabulous and definitely a step up from your run of the mill Jelly Bean. These baskets were also a BIG hit, and everyone really thought the idea was genius! This would be a great gift for a child, but also for a favorite adult or teacher!
