20 Adorable Easter Peeps DIYs for Kids

Planning an epic Easter weekend for your kids isn’t as hard as you might think if you’ve got Peeps. This sweet snack is obviously great for nomming but also comes in pretty handy for kids crafts and taking your festive decor to the next level. Whether you are looking for edible cuteness or epic candy art, the 20 Peeps DIYs below will be fun for everyone. So set aside some time from the Easter egg hunt (tips on organizing an Easter egg hunt here) and join in with your kids for some last-minute family time.

1. Easter Peeps Pops: This kids craft doubles as a lollipop. To make these little white bunnies on sticks, you’ll need white chocolate, Shimmer Sixlets and a few party straws. If you’re not quite ready to snack, these cuties are only one step away from turning into an instant sippy straw: Just poke your straws all the way through! (via Love From The Oven)

2. Easter Peep Houses: Give those little Peeps a home of their own using candy, graham crackers and edible grass. Build a two-story house with your kids for a real challenge. Winner gets the first Peep! (via The Crafting Chicks)

3. Bunny Peep-Tarts: This recipe doesn’t actually call for Peeps (which leaves more for snacking!) but if your kids are fans of pop-tarts, they’ll love this delicious baking project. Fill pie crusts with chocolate, chopped strawberry, strawberry cream cheese or whatever you want. (via A Kailo Chic Life)

4. Easter Bunny Race Car Treats With Peeps: Rev up those creative engines for this kids DIY. Just lay out the ingredients, sit back and watch your kids get creative. You don’t even need to bake anything. (via Living Locurto)

5. Cadbury Mini Egg Cupcakes: Cadbury eggs are no doubt one of the things everyone looks forward to when Easter rolls around. Now you can incorporate this irresistible Easter candy into your cupcakes. You might want to handle the baking portion, but your kids can do everything else including all the cute little decorations. (via Oh Sweet Basil)

6. Peeps Pizza: This is one slice of pizza no one can turn down. Rice Krispies, Fruity Pebbles, marshmallow frosting and Peeps come together to make up this sweet treat. Throw in a few Easter candies like jelly beans, and that pizza is ready to be served! (via Baking Beauty)

7. Peeps Skewers: You’ve probably seen packaged versions of this rainbow set of Peeps. If you haven’t managed to snatch them up before they sold out, opt instead for a DIY option. They’re easy enough for your kids to make and double as great Easter party favors. (via Evermine Occasions)

8. Bunny Ballerinas: Add a feminine flair to your Peeps with a tutu made of candy corns and pearl accessories using pearl sugar balls. The only thing missing now is a “Nutcracker” Peep. (via She Knows)

9. Hula Bunny Peeps: Say aloha to these adorable Hawaiian-inspired Peeps. They’ll turn out so cute, you might not want to eat them! (via Sugar Swings)

10. Edible Playdough Recipe With Peeps: Sure, you’ve played around with the squishy snack when you were little. But, now you can actually turn them into edible play dough. Combine Peeps with powdered sugar, coconut oil and food coloring for a malleable and edible toy your kids will love. (via The Sits Girls)

11. Layered Peeps Crispy Rice Cereal Treats: Don’t be fooled. These pretty pastel Rice Krispies treats are surprisingly easy to make. Just make them how you would normally make Rice Krispies treats, but subbing Peeps for marshmallows. Once you’ve made each layer separately, pop them into a loaf pan and cool before you cut. (via Yellow Bliss Road)

12. Chocolate Covered Peeps Pops: Set up a sprinkles station so your kids and their friends can decorate chocolate-covered Peeps. All they’ll have to do is dip their Peeps into warm chocolate then sprinkle on some sweet decorations (Think: edible confetti, edible glitter, non pareils, etc.). (via Revamperate)

13. Skateboarding Peeps: These cool bunnies really know how to kick it. Watch your kids pull off gnarly tricks with their skateboarding bunnies with this fun project. To make these, you’ll need Vienna finger cookies, Peeps, Lifesavers, Starburst, candy melts and some daisy sprinkles to tie the whole look together. (via Sweet Simple Stuff)

14. A Peeps Garland: This Peeps garland doubles as Easter decorations AND jewelry. Cut it short to create Peeps necklaces for all you guests at brunch, or string them on a super long string for an epic Easter garland. Do both, if you’re feeling ambitious. (via Dukes and Duchesses)

15. Peeps Catapult: You might want to consider the potential consequences of having to deal with one too many flying objects with this fun idea, but your kids will have a blast. Measure how far you can get jelly beans to fly, and send the winner home with a chocolate bunny. (via Lemon Lime Adventures)

16. Peeps Houses: Throw a few graham crackers together and use frosting as “glue” for a super simple Peeps hideaway. See how long you can make the display last before some-bunny nibbles at it. (via Yesterfood)

17. Easter Peeps in a Nest: Your kids might not want to wait to take this little birdie’s nest home before they eat it. Peeps, jelly beans, chow mein noodles and chocolate are all you’ll need to pull off this clever food craft. (via Queen of My Kitchen)

18. Which Came First?: When hollowing out eggs, remember to rinse out the shell of all its contents using soap and water. Once you’ve got that done, carefully squeeze a Peep into the eggshell for a peeping Peep. If you don’t have egg cups, snag some edible grass for a nest. (via Camille Styles)

19. Peeps Pops With Free Printable Easter Gift Tags: Your little one can create their own classroom treats with this inexpensive and easy DIY. It’s the same idea as the Easter Peeps Pops, but wrapped in mini cellophane bags. Tie them off with baker’s twine and add a free printable gift tag. (via Simple As That)

20. Peeps Boats: Sail away to Peeps paradise with this super simple DIY. Glue a triangle-shaped “sail” made of card stock unto a toothpick and stick it into a Peep. You’ll be floating that Peeps boat in under 5 minutes. (via Kids Play Box)
