I saw this project on a bunch of websites & made up some for Easter gifts for teachers & other special “peeps” :)
If you Google “Peeps in a jar” you’ll find lots of examples & methods for making these. I combined a few & here’s what I did:
Crush 1 sleeve of graham crackers into crumbs & dump into the bottom of a canning jar – if you use ones with the wide mouths I would imagine it would be much easier, but I had these on hand.
Place your Peeps in the jar – against the side. I used the end of a wooden spoon to smush the last one in.
In the center of the Peeps place 1/3 cup of brown sugar. This was easiest to do when I packed together several little clumps & dropped them into the jar. Then I tamped it down using the bottom of a gravy ladle. Place 1 1/4 cup of M&Ms on top & you’re almost done!
I also made a circle label for the top.
It features this little guy made with SBC+. You should be able to click on it, then right click on the picture & use “save as” to save it to your computer & import it for use in your digital projects.
This was a fun & easy project & would be great for other holidays, too – I know I’ve seen lot of other types of Peeps – pumpkins, ghosts, snowmen –pair them up with seasonal M&Ms & you have tons of possibilities!!
