How To Find The Speed Of Light Using Peeps

peeps-speed-of-light

Peeps owe their color, gelatinousness, and very existence to science. So, it only makes sense that they pay it back, by lending themselves to a scientific experiment.

Finding The Speed of Light with Peeps, by NPR’s Skunk Bear, is a very fun way to come up with how fast light travels. It’s actually quite simple, and a fun little project that you can do with the kids… if they don’t eat all the Peeps first. Science!!

Toasted Marshmallow Shot Glasses Will Get The Campfire Party Started

When rationing out marshmallows to the kids for s’mores, make sure to set a few aside for the adults. Toasted Marshmallow Shot Glasses are here to help make the campfire party interesting when all the chocolate and graham crackers are gone.

Simply toast your marshmallow, allowing them to hollow themselves out. Fill it with your favorite booze, or find some s’mores vodka… we’re sure that exists somewhere.

It’s St. Patrick’s Day… And you know what that means? Break out the kelly green and GUINNESS EVERYTHING!!!

Wondermade is on board with Guinness Marshmallows. The fluffy squares are made with the Irish elixir, pure Penzey’s vanilla extract, and rolled in crushed pretzels.

Use them to make some Irish S’mores, or, oh… Who are we kidding? Eat them while chugging Guinness, and then go pick a fight with the guy at the bar who isn’t wearing enough green. Just like last year, but with marshmallows.
