Over the next couple of weeks leading up to Easter, I will be sharing fun arts and craft and recipes that incorporate everyone's favorite Easter treat, Peeps. Peeps are not just for eating - instead you can create cute Easter dinner centerpieces, create delicious tasting desserts and get kids excited about arts and crafts with Peeps inspired projects. So, sit back and enjoy my first of four Peeps and Co. Easter themed posts.
Today, I will be sharing a few of my favorite Easter/Spring themed centerpieces or favors, which when Peep's are added, just make for a more fun display:
