Easter is on its way and a little early this year! For me Easter is a reminder of Spring, flowers blooming, playing outside and of course PEEPS® . I remember as a child always getting PEEPS® in my Easter basket and I have made sure that I have carried on the tradition of giving my children PEEPS® in their baskets as well.
We received a lovely gift box of all sorts of PEEPS® goodness and I wanted to make something special from all the great treats for my children to enjoy. I made a super easy DIY PEEPS® Easter basket using the candy and just a single piece of cardboard for the bottom.
DIY PEEPS® EASTER BASKET
First, hot glue the edges of 4 sleeves of PEEPS® together at the edges.
Next hot glue a piece of thin cardboard to the bottom of the PEEPS that you have previously attached.
Add grass, and fill with all of your goodies.
Super easy and looks delicious too! We like to keep our Easter baskets pretty simple, usually filling with bubbles, sand toys, books and of course candy. Two of our children have birthdays that are so close to Easter as well so it can get a little overwhelming, especially for our littlest.
Here is a closer look of what is in my PEEPS® basket:
