How to make a Peep house for Easter.

Only some simple, inexpensive supplies are required for this fun kids craft!

You’ll need some graham crackers, Easter candy like Peeps, sprinkles, and (most importantly) a thick icing to act as your “glue” when constructing your Peep house. I used a tube of Wilton decorating icing, and that worked nicely. It needs to dry hard and thick to hold the houses together.

Give your Easter Peep house some grass with shredded coconut!

This edible grass is completely optional, but it’s so easy and fun to make.

First, I added about a cup of shredded coconut to a plastic baggie. Then, I mixed up a teaspoon of water with two drops of green food coloring. Add the water/food coloring mixture to the baggie, shake up the contents, and the shredded coconut will take on a nice green color. You can then use this “grass” for your Peeps houses!

Make the base of your Peep house first by using frosting to stick the three walls and base together, as shown above, and then let that dry/set for a few minutes. Then, attach the pitched roof to the top. Finally, you can embellish your houses with coconut grass, Peeps, Easter candy, etc. So fun and easy to create!

Hip Tip: Make sure to use lightweight/small candy or sprinkles to decorate the roof, or it could cave in. I had that happen with heavier candy. 😆
