Peeps Diorama Contest

It’s time again for The Putney Public Library’s Annual Peeps Diorama Contest! Those brightly colored marshmallow treats are on the supermarket shelves and ready to star in a diorama about your favorite book! Scroll past these Peepspiration pictures from last year to see the rules and print your entry form.

The Peeps of Wrath, by Louise Luring, inspired by The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
The County Fair, by Alana, Kahlan and Marilyn. Inspired by Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White.
