The other day I was drooling over Pintrest posts (and I only say drooling because in all honesty I am obsessed with that site! I love the fabulous ideas people have, I love to see what people have done and figure out ways to improve upon them, and frankly I love to organize them). I saw the cutest Peep basket on there and immediately thought of my grandpa!
The 83 year old man has a mean sweet tooth and he can put away several Peeps in one sitting. Thing is though, he doesn’t like them fresh and soft….he likes them stale and chewy or almost hard. Goofy man! He came over to our house last week after my lil’ princess had her surgery to meet my lil’ king at the bus stop and I thought I’d surprise him with a Peep basket as a thank you for his help! Oh man he was so excited!!!
It was really easy to do. I simply spent $2 at the dollar store (1 for the basket and 1 for the Easter grass). We had some sticks and Peeps already purchased and waiting for us at home. We filled the basket with the Easter Grass for a sturdy base.
After the basket was ready we inserted a candy stick into each Peep and added them to the basket one by one. When we were all done we were pretty excited with how it turned out and Grandpa was thrilled with the sugar overload!
