Try this fun Easter Craft and build a graham cracker Peeps house.
Why do gingerbread men get to have all of the fun with their fancy gingerbread houses? We decided Marshmallow Peeps should get their own candy houses too! And since my favorite way to make a gingerbread house with the kids is by using graham crackers, that’s exactly what we did for our Peeps.
Every Christmas Eve we have a tradition, after dinner we build graham cracker gingerbread houses while we watch Christmas movies and wait for Santa. This is such a fun tradition that we decided to move it on over to another holiday too. So after brunch and our our Easter Egg hunt we will be make Peeps houses out of graham crackers and decorating them with delicious easter candies and of course, marshmallow peeps!
