Peeps are my favorite.
I know your response already. “Ewwwwwwwww!” Am I right?
Let’s be real – I feel like a very small population of people actually enjoy peeps, but thankfully it’s enough for them to stay in our stores. Like when we thought we were losing Ho-Hos forever, that was a rough day.
Anyways, my son and I LOVE Peeps so I buy them mostly for eating, but, since we have been so into stamping stuff lately, why not try Peeps?
Full discloser – it’s a sticky activity. We even used “stale” Peeps (I leave the package open so they get firm.. I know.. we are weird) and they were still sticky. I would definitely recommend gloves if you don’t think your child could handle it. My son on the other hand, could careless, so we didn’t have a problem!

What You Need:
- 1 package of Peeps Bunnies
- Non-Toxic Washable Paint
- Paper Plate(s)
- Card stock or Construction Paper
- Plastic Fork

- Gloves (optional)
What To Do:
- Make your color pallet on a paper plate.
- Put one Peep in each color and move it around so the peep is fully covered.
- Stamp Peeps Bunnies anywhere on the paper. (My son needs a tad of assistance with getting the whole peep stamped down so it actually looked like a bunny.)
- Dip the fork in green paint for grass.
- You can use your finger or paintbrush to paint a sun.
- Use your finger or paintbrush to make clouds.
- Use a black sharpie or paint to make the signature peep eyes and nose!
Things To Think About
- This is your child’s painting. Let them be creative! I only gave you these directions as a guideline but you can do whatever you’d like!

- This doesn’t have to be an outdoor picture! Check out our book inspirations for some fun ideas!
- You can turn this into a counting activity by adding a certain number of bunnies or counting after the painting is completed.

How fun would this scene be to recreate?!
