Dos & Don’ts

  • PEEPS® in the Village is a family-friendly show. Peddler’s Village reserves the right not to display an entry that is deemed offensive, controversial, inappropriate, religious, political, or poorly constructed and may remove entries based on guest complaints or damage.
  • When constructing your project, please refrain from using hazardous materials, food, or spillable items such as liquids or dirt.
  • TIPS
    – A strong idea is key. Sometimes the best entries are the simplest, yet most recognizable.
    – Keep your PEEPS® in a row! Craftsmanship can make or break the overall look of a project.
    – Fresh PEEPS® are more malleable if you need to mold. Leave your PEEPS® out a few days if you need them stiffer.
    – For different colors, edible cake paint can color your PEEPS® without damaging them.
    – Dip scissors in water to cut down on stickiness.
