   Easter is not just for little kids! There are lots of things you can do to get into the spirit of the holiday this year.

   Invited to an Easter brunch with friends or relatives? Instead of a boring fruit salad, make Easter Peep Fruit Kebabs. You will need wooden skewers, one to two packages of Peeps, and fresh fruit (grapes, strawberries, and pineapple). Layer fruit on a skewer with a peep in the center. Serve the skewers and enjoy!

   Rather than buying the usual Easter Lily for a table decoration, get crafty. A Lemon Drop and Peep Tulip Bouquet will brighten up any table. You will need lemon drop candies, yellow Peeps, and a dozen yellow tulips. Fill a round vase nearly half way with lemon drop candies. Next, make a ring of yellow Peeps. Finally, insert the tulips. Don’t forget to add water!

   When you are left with empty plastic eggs at the end of Easter, rather than throw them away, use them to create artistic sculptures! All you need are plastic Easter eggs and a glue gun. Let your creativity run wild and create all sorts of interesting arrangements. Happy Easter!
