Not much for eating Peeps. Peeps make me laugh. For me, they are a humorous part of my college graduation memories….
But for Easter decorating, well these Peeps take the cake! This is an Easter cake I made a few years back.
On Pinterest, I have seen Peeps in wreaths
and Peeps on skewers!
It all has me imagining Peeps on swags like garlands and Peeps on sticks in flower bouquets and a college door…old, hardened Peeps on it and a night of revelry with my sistas!
Yeah, Peeps make me laugh….
This is a fun and easy craft project for all ages! It makes a nice addition to any altar, room, shelf, or wall.
In this simple activity you’ll crate a home/school decoration of St. Joseph on a block of wood. I felt that wood seemed like a perfect spot to put a picture of St. Joseph, since he was/is a carpenter!
It easy enough for kids in 1st grade but still nice enough for teens and adults.

St. Joseph the Craftsman, pray for us!
From this website , found on Pinterest, we found inspiration to make a Lorax craft.
Make sure to open the link above to see instructions I did not include here.
First, my daughter and my mother collected craft supplies. A piece of cardboard for the base…green construction paper…paper for a path….foam shapes….clay….popsicle sticks…pipe cleaner….yarn….glitter glue.
After wrapping the cardboard in green paper and cutting a winding trail out of black construction paper, my mother helped my daughter glue foam pieces onto the trail to look like a cobblestone path.
This wasn’t in the movie, but any chance to use more glue was fun for my daughter!
To make the tree trunks, we used popsicle sticks . Pipe cleaners created the look of the stripes and helped to grab the “Truffula Tufts.”
Here, we have sunk the sticks into mounds of clay that she then painted with green glitter glue.
We realized she even had tiny bears that she could include to replicate the movie, now all we need is a little Lorax.
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
nothing is going to get better. It’s not.
