Are you ready to party??
Easter Kids Peep Party
Welcome Peeps!!! We threw a fun little peep themed party to get into the Easter spirit. My daughters were so excited by the fun pastels and the clever play on words with the Peeps candy!
For this little party, we made vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting, which we topped with a combination of jelly beans, cupcakes toppers from the printables and of course, actual peeps marshmallows. The kids enjoyed decorating and eating the cupcakes!
How to make the Peeps Easter Cookies
Aren’t those Peeps yellow bunnies the perfect cookie? Making peeps shaped cookies was one of my favorite parts of prepping for this party. Finding a cookie cutter shaped like a peep was actually a bit of a challenge. I was so excited when I finally found the perfect fit!! I used this awesome peep shaped cookie cutter to make the fun peep shaped cookies.
The cookies were super simple to make. I used my basic sugar cookie recipe and some royal icing. You can buy that mix or here is a great royal icing recipe to use!! If you are new to cookie decorating, you also need a piping bag, icing tip 1/2, coupler, and clip. I recommend this piping tip set. It’s reasonably priced and includes everything you need.
Prepare the cookie dough per the recipe. Once the cookies are ready to cut, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thick. Use the cookie cutter to cut the cookies and bake. Once the cookies are completely cool (I recommend waiting a full day to top with icing), outline the cookies with the colored icing. Fill the center of the cookie with icing and using a toothpick, rub out any imperfections in the icing. Allow the icing to dry. Then add the black eyes and nose. You can also use these little black sprinkles for this detail!
If you are going to throw a party, you need to have some party favors, right? Why not put some of those delicious cookies into a little treat bag and make some “treats for your peeps”!?
Easter Kids Treats
Making Easter treats for your kids using Peeps is really simple. You can bake and decorate sugar cookies like above, or you can use the peeps themselves in fun treats. I decided to put peeps on top of the buttercream frosted cupcakes. The peeps were perfection on top of the cupcakes. I want to eat all my cupcakes with peeps on top forever now. Ok, maybe not FOREVER…but at least until my peeps supply runs out.
The part of this party that was the most fun, was mixing the pretty pastels with the black and white. I used black and white treat bags for the party favors, black and white mini grid plates for the food.
So one question you might be asking yourself at this point is “Where do I find peeps?” Target…you find the peeps at Target!!! This is definitely the best selection of peeps candy I’ve found anywhere (and yes it is an affiliate link so if you click my link below and order I will be compensated at no additional cost to you…but seriously…Target is where it is at!!) You can even order online and have them gather it all up for you. It’s winning all around!!
Easter Kid craft ideas
Looking for some fun kids Easter crafts? Why not take your ordinary Easter crafts up to the next level and craft for Easter Peep Style? Here are some fun and simple peep themed craft ideas…
Free Easter Printables
So the first amazing idea is to use the Easter Peep Printables to style an Easter party like the one above. The printables have the five classic peep colors and lots of fun black and white dots! If you use the printables, I would love to see pictures! Make sure to tag Mimi’s Dollhouse on instagram or facebook when you share your photos!!
Make your own peep. Use the below peep outline and have your child decorate their own peep. Be traditional and use glitter or glue and tissue paper squares, be creative and decorate your peep with personality! Whatever you do…have a blast making your own peep.
Easter activities for kids
Now let’s talk Easter party games! There are tons of ways to entertain your guests…both the large and the small…check out some of these amazing ideas!
Easter activities with peeps
What is an Easter party without some party activities and games? Of course like any good Easter celebration, you can have a Peep themed easter egg hunt. Get plastic eggs and fill them all with different peeps. Have one special peep (like these sugar cookie peeps). The person who finds the special peep wins!!!
Another idea is to build a peep house from graham crackers. Check out this awesome Peep house from My Mommy Style!
