Past the sell-by date, but…

I visited a library in Frederick, Md., this week, and the librarians asked me to bring along a craft. Fortunately, I had some Peeps left over from the last time I did book-related crafts with kids.

Unfortunately, the Peeps had expired.

Fortunately, that just doesn’t matter when you’re making dioramas.

A few of the kids left before I got the chance to snap their artwork, so I’m supplementing my August Peeps with some pics I took in April. (If you haven’t spotted the book tie-in, it’s this: My friend Rachael decided that Peeps could be canaries just as easily as they could be chickens. And once they’re out of the coal mine, they can go anywhere they choose…)

    Can’t say it was an original idea (thanks Washington Post and Chicago Trib) but glad to use and reuse!

    Look at the underwater peeps! They’re all awesome, though.

    Finally, a creative use for expired Peeps! 😉
