A Peeps-show in time for Easter

The delightful Easter Peeps diorama contest is back

Every year the Washington Post is inundated with entries to its annual Peep diorama contest. While the marshmallow confections—usually in the form of pastel-coloured chicks and bunnies—are much more popular south of the border, everyone can enjoy the cleverness that went into changing Peeps into everything from a scene from the children’s book Madeleine, in which the “two straight lines” of girls is replaced with yellow chicks, to Chinese terracotta statues. The entries come complete with punny titles such as “Super Peeplo Brothers” for a riff on the video game Super Mario Brothers. The newspaper has not only a story and a photo gallery of the best entries, but fabulous videos showing every detail of the five best dioramas. Enjoy.
