For five years The Post has challenged readers to create dioramas using the oohy, gooey, oh-so-sweet candy known as Peeps. There were more than 900 entries this year, but KidsPost understands that no group does dioramas better than kids, so here are five created by young readers.
"The Intergalactic Peeps Station" by Jessica Cuestas, sixth grade; Claire Joseph, fifth grade; Katelynne Loftis and Kati Aleman, third grade; Nelson Velaquez, Luis Sorto, Quinn Loftis, Macie Williams, second grade; and Maggie DiScipio, first grade, at Pine Spring Elementary’s school-aged child-care program in Fairfax County. <br /><br /> Inspired by the shuttle Discovery's last flight, the kids created a spaceship of the future, complete with jet packs and vegetable gardens.
