Sugary, gooey marshmallow Peeps® have been an Easter basket staple for decades.
But these little pastel chicks and bunnies have become more than a treat, as general creative types find their cuteness and bright colors fit perfectly in witty art installations. Peeps have been given roles on the White House front lawn, in re-creations of children’s books, historical settings and other, um, unusual situations.
Many have been inspired by a contest run by the Washington Post, and now the Milwaukee-area Patches bring you their first official Peeps Challenge! Here is how the contest works:
- Upload to this article a photo or video of Peeps being entertaining. Not allowed are copyrighted material, or inappropriate or vulgar material.
- Deadline for entry is 11 p.m. on Easter Sunday, April 8.
- Patch editors will select the winners on the basis of creativity, local flair and presentation. Complete official rules are attached to this article.
Peeps will present three gift baskets worth $25 each to three winners. So get started creating, and try not to eat the exhibit!
