Every year when the Peeps appear on the store shelves, the internet debates heat up between those who love Peeps and those who hate them. Well, for this adorable Easter craft, you won’t need to worry about who likes to eat Peeps and who doesn’t… instead you can use the Peeps as a prop for a graham cracker Peeps house!

I just know that your kids are going to love this fun project! Making a “house” for a Peeps chick or bunny is a great way to spend some crafty time around the Easter holiday (or any time in Spring!). You won’t need a lot of supplies to make a Peeps house. It’s a simple activity for school or home and can definitely be enjoyed by all ages.

Oh! And of course: the PEEPS HOUSE is entirely edible! Similar to a gingerbread house at Christmas time, this house is made up of all food material.

Step-by-Step Guide

Let’s build a sweet house for our Peeps!

  1. Preparing the Grass
    Place a handful of coconut flakes in a small bowl. Add several drops of green food coloring to the flakes and stir them up until the coconut flakes are coated with green color.

  2. Setting the Scene
    Spread the green coconut flakes on a flat surface where your Peeps house will be placed. You can use a plate, a piece of cardboard, or even a shallow Tupperware container for your Peeps scene.
  3. Building the House Walls
    Using the frosting as your “glue,” connect 3 graham cracker squares in a “U” shape to form the walls of your house.
  4. Decorating the Roof
    Coat the tops of 2 additional graham cracker squares with frosting. Add sprinkles to the frosting-topped crackers. Finally, use more frosting to “glue” the roof in place. Use our pictures for a guide.

  5. Placing the House
    Place your Peeps house on the coconut flakes and add a Peeps marshmallow to her new home! Use jelly beans or other colorful candies to decorate the space around the house.
