Rockin’ Peeps




By Noreen Doll.

Kids can enjoy making these rockin’ peeps and then have fun playing with them.

In fact, a whole flock of peeps is quick and easy.

This would be a great Easter party activity, which even preschoolers can do.

The fun thing about these peeps is that they rock!

[Idea from Alicia: I think these are great. I see spring party place cards.]

I got the idea for them here, but I didn’t want mine quite so fancy.

Materials.

Yellow Card Stock

Round Lids or Dishes in Various Sizes

Scissors

Black Foam Scrap

Double Sided Tape or Glue

Yellow Silk Fall Leaves

How to Make Rockin’ Peeps.

1. Trace a circle on the yellow card stock.

Draw a triangle there, too.

Cut them out. The easiest way to cut a circle is to turn the paper into the scissors as you cut, rather than turning the scissors.

2. Punch 2 black circles from the black foam scrap.

3. Fold the circle in half and crease. The sharper the crease, the closer together the bottoms of the circles will be.

4. Fold the triangle in half and crease.

Attach the beak as shown.

5. Attach the eyes as shown. I like the eyes to be big, and placed fairly close together, and close to the beak.

6. Cut the wings from the fall leaves or flower petals. Shape them if necessary.

7. Attach the wings to each side of the peep.

Your rockin’ peep is ready to rock and roll!

Now make a flock of rockin’ peeps in different sizes.

Tips.

I used card stock for the largest and smallest peeps, but the middle size peep is just yellow paper.

You would want to use card stock for younger kids, as they are a little rougher with crafts.

If you don’t have silk leaves, you could use the petals from yellow silk flowers for the peep’s wings.

I liked using a darker shade of yellow for the peep’s beak. Orange would also work.

No matter what size the peep, I used the same size eyes for all of them.
