Easter Fun: Where Are My Peeps?

If Peeps chicks and bunnies lived or visited Mountain View, what would they do? Where would they go?

The first newspaper I ever wrote for, Manhattan Times, in my neighborhood in New York ran an Easter feature that I loved.

They asked neighborhood residents to purchase—not necessarily eat—the gooey and colorful Marshmallow Peeps and shoot photos of them around the neighborhood, as if the Peeps resided in or were visiting Washington Heights/Inwood.

Watch the video above to get an idea (and to admire my old neighborhood!).

This is a really fun activity to do with the kids, while on a walk with a loved one, or if you are on a coffee break. Hint: software and photography apps could make the image more realistic!

So let's try it Mountain View, "Where are my Peeps?"

P.S. Peeps apparantly can be put through harsh conditions, so get creative!

I LOVED this article and learning about your lighter side! I also read recently about Peeps dioramas, which tickles me, too. I look forward to spotting Peeps around town.

this is sort of like finding a pez dispenser in order to get the pez candy. why not assume a lighter view of easter and try to enjoy the holiday?

I heard today that this was like the "Flat Stanley" thing that kids used to do? I don't know about that, but I know about the traveling Gnomes. I love Pez!
