I’ll be honest, I’ve never enjoyed eating Peeps, but they are so bright and colorful and cute, I couldn’t resist buying a few boxes! And since I don’t like eating them, I came up with an easy and fun way to give them out. And when I say easy, I mean really really easy…
Peeps pops. Peeps on a stick. Whatever you want to call them, I call them a cute way to wish friends and family a happy Easter! These little Peeps pops seriously take about 3 seconds to make a piece, or about a minute a piece if you count putting a bag over the top and attaching the free printable tags.
Couldn’t be easier!!
All you need are some Peeps, sucker sticks, sucker bags (optional), glue (I used hot glue), and the free printable tags I created here… (Just click on the tags that you want, download, and print!)
Just poke a sucker stick into the bottom of a Peep, and you have instant candy cuteness. If you’ll be giving these out at a party, then you might not need to wrap them up. For passing out to family, friends at school, church classes, etc., then I would definitely put them in a sucker bag.
To seal each bag, print my free printable tags, fold the whole page in half vertically, and then cut each folded strip out, so that there is a front and a back to each tag. To attach the tags to the bottom of each bag, open up the tag, place a strip of hot glue to the inside of the tag, and carefully close each tag (making sure not to get any glue on the bag, because it will melt a hole in it). Then I just made two snips in the end of the tag to finish it off.
Simple and easy!! Kids could do most of these steps by themselves to make to pass out to their friends, minus the hot glue part of course 🙂
Give these Peeps pops a try! And if you have a true Peeps fan in your life, you could always give them a little something like this, using a wooden skewer stick and stacking a few Peeps on it. My kids were all drooling over this big daddy!
Enjoy!! Stay tuned this week for more fun Easter ideas.
