Peanut Peeps...

More boredom busting...peanut peeps! We made these together and because you can eat as you make it makes all the more fun.


You will need some peanuts in their shells (cooked), toothpick, tweezers, sharp knife, felt pens/markers and something to make a mess on....


I carefully cut the end off each peanut then Ebi-kun used a combination of tweezers and toothpick to remove the peanuts from inside the shell, this is the messy bit and I really wish I had not done the vacuuming before we started so I didn't have to do it twice!


Clean up the mess and you should be left with a selection of funny shaped peanuts...


We picked up each shell and examined it, discussed what it looked like before attacking it with the markers, of course there were several pirates a couple of ninjas and some 'goodies' as Ebi-kun would put it. You can play with them as little people or....


Pop them on your finger as little puppets, and yes, Ebi-kun has been at it again....
