Hangin’ With My Peeps
Every year for Easter we have a dinner along with a big Easter egg hunt which everyone (adults included) participates in. There is a golden egg, filled with candy and $10, along with a silver egg that is filled with all chocolate candies (no jelly beans here). This year we added to the festivities with a Peeps Diorama Competition, and let me tell you, the competition was fierce! Isn’t that always the case when the prizes were procured at a the dollar store? Participants were told to think of pop culture or something happening in their lives as ideas. Here are the entries:
Complete with Brian Wilson’s Beard and an infield made of brown sugar and icing.
Ax Peeps, to mimic the show Ax Men on History Channel
A Peep Birthday Party
A Peep Classroom – No Peep Left Behind!
Peep Driver’s Ed Gone Wrong – Ketchup and Peeps, an unholy mix to be sure!
A Visit to the Doctor – With an Ultrasound Picture that was Photoshopped to add bunny ears
Angry Peeps! They want their Easter Eggs Back!
And Chick-it or Ticket! Fasten that seatbelt (or peep-belt!)
In the kid’s category we had a scene from Star Wars (those Peeps are holding lightsabers, not impaled by pipe cleaners), Peeps at a movie theater watching Star Wars, Peeps hanging out under cocktail umbrellas, and a beach scene with Peeps hanging out under cocktail umbrellas (that’s the sun, not the eye of sauron).
It was a very fun competition, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it makes an appearance next year!
