Or draw a peep. Real peeps are about 3 inches high and 1 3/8 inches wide.

Cut them out.

4. Lay one craft foam peep on top of the other one, and glue them together. Let dry.

5. Lay the glued peep on a hard plastic surface, such as a large lid, plastic stamping block, or the plastic lid to a deck of cards (which I used).

Use double sided tape or Aleene’s Tack-it Over and Over to attach the peep to the plastic back.

The peep stamp is ready to be used.

Peep Tags

1. Cut 2 1/2 inch by 4 inch rectangles from white cardboard or card stock.

2. Using colored ink or paint, stamp a peep onto the tag.

Add tiny dots for the eyes and nose.

3. To shape the tag, cut off one of the top corners.

Punch a hole near the top of each ear.

Kids can color the peeps and cut them out.

4. Kids can stamp peeps onto butcher paper or newsprint to make wrapping paper. Or just have fun stamping with them.

Tips.

You could use the plastic blocks that hold stamps to back your peep.

Tags don’t have to be white, they can be any color.
