10 Fun Things To Do With Peeps (Besides Eating Them!)


Peeps, those iconic marshmallow treats shaped like adorable chicks and bunnies, are synonymous with Easter and springtime.

And whether you love them or hate them...you can't deny their cultural significance! Did you know there are Peeps Diorama contests all over the U.S...(sometimes called PEEP Shows?) 

As it turns out, a pack of peeps opens a whole world of creative possibilities! Whether you're looking for ways to entertain the kids, decorate for a party, or just explore your culinary creativity, here are 10 fun things you can do with Peeps besides eating them!

Peeps Dioramas

Channel your inner artist and create miniature Peeps scenes! Set them up in shoebox dioramas or any other small container and bring your imagination to life. Some ideas include: a Peeps beach scene, a camping trip...or even recreating your favorite scene from a TV show or movie! 

Peeps S'mores 

Put a twist on the classic campfire treat by swapping out traditional marshmallows for Peeps. Sandwich a Peep between two graham crackers and a piece of chocolate, then heat it over an open flame or in the microwave for gooey goodness.

Peeps Kabobs

Thread Peeps onto skewers with fresh fruit like strawberries, pineapple chunks, and grapes for a colorful and playful dessert or snack. These Peeps kabobs are perfect for parties or a fun afternoon activity with the family.

Peeps Centerpieces

Brighten up your table with a festive Peeps centerpiece. Arrange Peeps of various colors and shapes in a vase or bowl, interspersed with flowers, Easter eggs, or decorative grass for a cheerful springtime display.

Peeps Science Experiments

Turn snack time into a learning opportunity with Peeps science experiments. Watch what happens when you drop Peeps into different liquids like water, soda, or vinegar, and observe the reactions. You can also conduct experiments to see how Peeps react to heat, cold, or pressure.

Peeps Artwork

 Get crafty with Peeps by using them as stamps or stencils to create artwork. Dip Peeps in paint and stamp them onto paper to make colorful patterns, or use Peeps shapes as templates for drawing and painting.

Peeps Milkshakes

Blend up a delicious Peeps milkshake by combining vanilla ice cream, milk, and a few Peeps in a blender until smooth. Top with whipped cream and sprinkles for an extra festive touch.

Peeps Marshmallow Playdough

Whip up a batch of homemade playdough using Peeps marshmallow candies. Simply melt down Peeps in the microwave, then mix in flour until you reach your desired consistency. Let it cool, and you'll have a soft and squishy playdough that smells as sweet as it looks.

Peeps Party Favors

Send guests home with a sweet treat by packaging individual Peeps in colorful bags or boxes as party favors. Add personalized tags or stickers for an extra special touch.

Peeps Science Fiction Films

Get creative with stop-motion animation using Peeps as your characters! Create your own mini sci-fi or fantasy adventure using Peeps as actors. With a smartphone or camera and some basic editing software, you can bring your Peeps to life on the big screen.
