The thing about Peeps is that they seem to turn up just about everywhere this season. They become sushi, they become dioramas, and even are found topping delicious chocolate pies. Over the weekend the Peeps in our house decided to take a swim in a jello pond! My daughter and I had a blast making this cute watery scene. I used regular gelatin and dyed it light green with a drop of food coloring. Then we added the Peeps swimming, the water lilies, and the goldfish once the jello had finished setting. We really tried to think of all the things that would really make the pond look real. We think next time we might dye the jello blue, add yellow Peeps and a few floats to make it Peeps in a Swimming Pool!
