Picture of Easter Peeps Jousting

This is a fun, exciting sport great for easter parties of penny gambling with friends. This is a simple and fun project to do with young kids. It only takes about five minutes.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

The Materials you will need are:
1. 2 Peeps
2. 2 Toothpicks
3. 2 Napkins
4. A Microwave
5. A Friend

Step 2: Assemble Jousters

For this step all you need to do is insert one of the toothpicks into each peep fairly low on the peep. Make sure it is parallel to the table, etc.

Step 3: Place in Microwave

Place the two peeps on the napkins in the microwave. Face them at each other fairly close to each other but not touching.

Step 4: Set Time and Enjoy

Set the time on the microwave to around 40 seconds. watch and be amazed at what happens to each. Bet on which one you think will win (by win we mean stabs the other one before being stabbed). Take them out of the microwave and eat them quickly or else they will harden up and it is like eating a rock.

My friend in London never heard of graham crackers or s'mores. Every country is different & has its own special foods. Deal with it people! The USA isn't the center of the world!

So you put the stick kind of low?

I can see it's a sweet of some sort, but what is a Peep?

ecodude74 (author)Kiteman2012-02-28

I have to wonder exactly how you have never bitten into the sweet fattening sugar rush inspiring deliciousness of a peeps marshmallow chicken.

Kiteman (author)ecodude742012-02-29

They don't seem to be on sale in the UK.

It's a virtually indestructable marshmallow substance that comes in array of animals/objects. Leave an open package on the counter for a few days and they will get hard enough to break windows/give concussions.

dombeef (author)DesignerUserName2009-03-12

It almost gave me another concussion once i tried to see it they where very hard... lol

Kiteman (author)Kiteman2008-03-23

I've looked in the supermarkets, and the nearest I can see is a chocolate tea cake

Don't feel bad, my Australian friends don't know what peeps are either.

You have a marshmallow covered in colored suger in the shape of a chick aka baby chicken. They are sold in lines of 5 normaly 1 line per box. Best eaten frozen, fresh, chocolate covered, multiple boxes at once, etc..

Kiteman (author)Scammah2008-03-21

No, never heard of them.

tealpsyclone (author)Kiteman2008-04-15

a peep is a small marshmallow coated with sugar of different colons that are fun to eat on holidays like easter. not to mention that they expand in the microwave but don't hurt anything when they do.

jaysbob (author)tealpsyclone2008-06-06

peeps are made from organs?! D: good god I have to stop eating them.

tealpsyclone (author)jaysbob2008-06-07
