A Peek a Boo Peep would be a fun little non-candy gift to add to an Easter basket.Peek a Boo Peep - Crafty Journal

It is especially entertaining for little ones who still love to play peek a boo.

Older kids can make them for their younger siblings, or for fun Easter party give aways.

How to Make a Peek a Boo Peep.

2. Cut the patterns out.

3. Trace the peep pattern on yellow craft foam.

Trace the egg pattern on another color of craft foam for the egg.

5. Cut the egg in half lengthwise through the center.

6. Make an orange bill and black round eyes for the chick. Use a paper punch to punch the eyes.

Cut them out. Lay them different ways on the peep’s face to find an expression you like.

7. Use craft foam glue to attach the eyes and beak to the peep.

Let dry.

8. Overlap the bottom edge of the egg enough to punch holes near the center of the bottom on each egg piece.

9. Put the peep behind the egg and mark where the hole needs to go on it.

Punch the hole.

10. The top of the brad can be colored by a Sharpie, if desired.

11. Insert the brad first in one side of the egg, then the other side, and finally through the hole punched in the bottom of the peep.

Open out the prongs on the brad, but not so tightly the egg doesn’t open and close easily.

Open and close the sides of the egg to play peek a boo with the peep!
