Peeps® are adorable little marshmallow candies that have turned from simple desserts to an inspiration for a vast number of things, from dioramas to art projects to Peeps® science experiments. As STEM lovers, we have experimented with our fair share of Peeps® STEM activities. We had such fun trying these out! We’ve even rounded up a few extra activities invented by other excellent kids activity bloggers. If you have leftover Peeps® after your Easter fun, try one or more of these educational Peeps® STEM activities.

Fun and Educational Peeps® STEM Activities
Over at The STEM Laboratory, I shared our Peeps® slime experiment where we found out that you can transform Peeps® into some pretty epic slime!
We’ve also tried three other Peeps® science experiments with chick Peeps®. We mixed colors, tested whether Peeps® float (and if it is possible to sink them), and whether temperature can make a difference in the density of Peeps®.
Another fun Peeps® STEM experiment is the Peeps® density experiment we tried. This experiment tested whether there is any liquid denser than the fluffy Peep.
On the engineering side, we experimented by building Peeps® marshmallow bridges and other engineering activities.
We also tried a Peeps® engineering challenge to see who could build the best boat out of Peeps®.

What happens when you place a Peep inside a bottle? Find out in this experiment from Housing a Forest.
For our next project, we tried to see if Peeps® could transform into a soap-powered boat.
