Decorations DIY Ideas for Kids to Make

Peeps have been around for generations: more than 60 years to be exact. Ever since the company's humble beginnings back in 1953, the brand has been synonymous with the coming of Spring and Easter for young and old. Back in the day there were just a few varieties like the yellow marshmallow chicks and pink rabbits to enjoy. While those two types are still great sellers at this time of year, the Peeps Easter Collection has grown from the original original yellow chicks to Easter Bunnies in Pastel Colors and now includes a wide variety of delicious Peeps products available in both the U.S. and Canada in stores and on Amazon.

Kids and big kids at heart still squeal with delight when they discover these fluffy sugar coated marshmallow chick and bunny treats in their Easter baskets. They're wonderful to eat straight out of the package, too. But, until I did some research for this post and created the Peeps Girls Easter Hairband craft pictured below, I had no idea how hugely popular they have become as ingredients in creative recipes, wonderful arts and crafts and lots more that fans have been dreaming up.

It seems that Peeps are just about everywhere on the Internet -- from Pinterest boards, to mom and lifestyle blogs, to recipe sites and many more. There's even a Wikipedia page devoted to the brand.

All I've curated here may surprise you, too. Each and every Peeps DIY project referenced in this post is easy enough for you and your children to make together. What ever you choose to do, you can look forward to fun and quality time with the whole family.

Here are some of my favorite Peeps discoveries that go way beyond just eating them to sweeten your holiday!
