  1. We’ve used Peeps for many things – like for sticking the phone to the dashboard! – but painting? So clever!

  2. Had no clue you could do this but what an awesome idea!!! We’re not “huge” peep fans but my girls always seem to have some in their baskets every year so this would be awesome to use them for some family crafting time!!
