Easter Art Project for Preschoolers - how to make a Peep House


  1. Graham crackers (for constructing the walls and roof)
  2. Hot glue gun (for assembling the Peep House beforehand)
  3. Icing or frosting (to act as the glue for the decor)
  4. Assorted Easter candies, sprinkles, or gummies (for decorations)
  5. Peeps marshmallow bunnies (the stars of the show!)
  6. A sturdy tray, paper plate, or cardboard base (to build your Peep House on)


1. Prepare Your Base: To begin lay out your tray, paper plate, or cardboard base to build your Peep House upon. This provides stability for the crafting process.

2. Assemble the Peep House: Adults, using a hot glue gun, assemble the graham crackers to form the walls and roof of the Peep House. This step ensures sturdiness, preventing breakage while the kids are decorating. Leave an opening for the door.

3. Decorate, Decorate, Decorate!: Let the creativity flow! Invite kids to use their icing to add vibrant designs to the walls and roof. Then, invite your little ones to adorn their creation with Easter candies, sprinkles, and of course, those adorable Peeps! As they engage in this hands-on activity, they’re not just having fun; they’re also honing their fine motor skills and exploring their artistic talents.

Additionally, kids can enhance their Peep House with extra decorations like edible glitter or additional candy accents. This step encourages attention to detail and fosters creativity as your preschoolers personalize their masterpiece.

4. Let It Set: Last, allow your Peep House to set, giving the icing time to harden and secure everything in place.
