The Washington Post does a great contest every spring called the Washington Post Peeps Diorama Contest. This link provides background info, pictures of the semi-finalists and even videos of the five finalists. I chose to add a picture of one of the finalists, Goodnight Peep, because this is a, uh, semi-literary blog and you’ve all read Goodnight Moon, right?
The point of the contest is to build a diorama using marshmallow peeps as a major component of the construction. The diorama could be based on current or historical events, art, music, literature, movies — whatever.
When you need a writing break, cruise through Peep Show 2010 and look at some of the creations, look at the videos, look at past Peep Shows. Bring the kids/grandkids; it’s a lot of fun!
It was a beautiful week-end here on our little island. The sun shone, the air was warm, the buds are in full-tilt boogie. Earth put on a glorious celebration of spring with its message of rebirth and hope for the future.
Happy Easter! Happy Passover!
