Peeps and Pizza Fair
Saturday, March 25 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. in the Social Hall
Do you remember when you were a kid in elementary school and your teacher had you create a shoe box diorama to illustrate some event in history? The Peeps Fair is based on the same idea. Join us on Saturday, March 25 from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. in the Social Hall - team up with family and friends and create your own Bible story shoe box diorama using those crazy marshmallow Peeps. A pizza lunch will be provided to sustain your creative mind! The dioramas will be on display on Sunday, March 26 for all to see.
How the Peeps Fair Will Work
- Make a reservation for the pizza lunch by emailing Debbie MacVey at email@example.com or 662-4466. Lunch is $5 per person.
- Gather friends and family and pick out your favorite Bible story.
- Plan out how you might recreate it as a diorama using Peeps and other materials.
- Come to First Pres on March 25. We supply the Peeps, shoe boxes, tables, construction paper, scissors, and glue.
- Do you want to use gummy worms, fabric, plant material, your own shoe box? Bring them with you on March 25.
