Could you spray the peep with clear paint or varnish to keep the ants, etc. from having a holiday treat? Don't know if this might work. Any suggestions???

How precious. We adore Peeps and what a great way to show it. So easy, all the kids can make and decorate their own. Our tree will be loaded down. You could also do these with the egg shaped ones for an Easter display with the bunnies and chicks. Making these a $$ card is a fantastic idea, too.

Add some $ to the back of the ornament, and you have a great gift for your mail carrier, garbage man, UPS guy, etc.
