It’s time for Easter decorating at Camp Grandma with the grandkids. Peeps 7 Family
Peeps 1 familyPeeps 3 familyThey have been learning to skateboard at the park, now that the snow is melting.

This was their chance to create Skateboarding Peeps and other funny bunnies on candy wheels.

I showed them some cute and clever Peep pictures from the Sweet Simple Stuff blog for ideas.  Be sure to visit and enjoy her creative ideas too.

Now the grandkids were on their own, to show how creative they could get with the Peeps, Lifesavers, Starbursts, cookies and candy melts.

They put Peeps on snow shoes, Peeps on a couch, Peeps in cars, as well as skateboards.

They discussed wanting to do something nice for a neighborhood family.

So they chose which ones they wanted to put in their Easter baskets.

Then off they went to share the rest of the Peep creations with a local family.

They were thrilled and thought these were the best Easter treats ever.

It was heartwarming to know that Camp Grandma brought some smiles to another family as well.

For your Peep Easter treats, start with some Candy Melts for the frosting glue.  Then add some frosting to the Life Saver Wheels and Nutter Butter cookies.  Let them dry upside down. Carefully cut wedges from the Starburst candy for carrots and frost/glue a green sparkle candy for the leaves.  Add frosting glue to the Peeps to stick them on the cookies.
