What do you get when you mix Marshmallow Peeps with Pop Culture? Not some freaky science experiment…step away from the microwave. No, what you get is the third annual Washington Post Peeps Diorama Contest.
Read all about it here and get moving, the entry deadline is March 15th. Need some inspiration? Look no further than the 2008 contest and photo gallery. My personal favorite is the Peep Art.
For those who are less artistically inclined, but still want to get their Peeps on, check out the following:
Marshmallow Peeps Official Website where you can join their fan club, get fun facts and recipes.
The Big List of Peeps Links is pretty self explanatory. Although, the page is in serious need of an update.
And my personal favorite for the DIYer – a review of the WHAM-O Marshmallow Peep Maker. For real, how come I never found this in MY Easter basket?
