Happy Spring, Everyone!
Yes! Sweet, happy sunshine. Are you feeling the same way? I have been waiting for Spring weather to crack through the snowflakes. Although, Springtime has been a bit of a tease where I live. One day is warm and sunny, the next day it is freezing cold. We are fluctuating from the 70s back down to the 30s. I had mentally packed away my sweaters and was visualizing myself taking walks in the park. I was even thinking that I really needed to go buy a new pair of Cross-Trainers.
Even if the seasons are playing Tug-of-War, one thing is holding steady. That is the appearance of the sweet, gooey, colorful, marshmallow candy Peeps. I don’t know why they bring a smile to my face, but seeing them hit the shelves in the grocery store simply makes me happy. They come in a variety of colors and flavors (including “Mystery Flavor”), and you can even find them in different Easter-inspired shapes.
If you are looking to have a little Peep-tatstic fun with your students this Spring, you may enjoy learning “The History of Peeps” and doing experiments with Peeps.
