1. Paint two beads (one larger and one smaller) with acrylic paint.
2. Bend a pipe cleaner into an M shape.
3. When the beads have dried, bend the ends of the pipe cleaner under the larger bead to form two big feet, and adjust the loops above the smaller bead for ears.
4. Glue on a mini pom-pom tail.
5. Use a fine-point pen to draw on eyes, nose, and whiskers.

Use a plastic container that you get from the grocery store that holds strawberries and weave yarn through the openings. The opening aren’t even but that’s what makes it interesting. My grandson started to weave this basket but got tired so I finished it for him. Maybe using thicker yarn would have made it go faster. I just used a pipe cleaner for the handle.
The basket is holding a cute sock bunny that my daughter made.

This is a great idea. I used them last Christmas but you could use them for any special occasion. They’re so easy and really add a special touch to a family gathering.

Did you know there’s a website devoted to Peeps? CHECK IT OUT.
You’ll find holiday ideas, recipes and you can even join the Peeps Fan Club.
April is National Poetry Month so why not write a poem about Peeps with your grandchildren. Here’s one that me and my grandchildren wrote:
Purple, pink and yellow bunnies,
Little green chicks are so funny.
They’re squishy and chewy, so good to eat,
What a great Easter treat.

For each bunny cut the white paper into 2 pieces, one approximately
5 1/2″ x 7″ and the other 4″ x 5″. Cut 2 pink ears and 2 white smaller inside ears. Roll into a tube as shown in the photo and secure with tape or glue. Add the ears, a cotton ball tail and the face.
