If your little ones are suss on you saying, “If you don’t believe, you don’t receive”, or you just really want to create some bunny magic, then check out these fun ways to prove the Easter Bunny really did pay your house a visit!
1. Make sparkly bunny footprints
Don’t just leave chocolate eggs, leave PROOF that Mr E.B. came, by leaving some bunny tracks.
There are lots of ways you can make bunny footprints – using flour or chalk and a stencil is a popular one, but we love these glittery prints. They are simply glitter mixed with baking soda and then applied using damp sponges (a big one for the foot and a little one for the toes).
Head over to Little Hiccups to get the full how-to instructions.
2. Leave some bunny ‘fur’
Bunnies are as soft as cotton wool, which is exactly why you should pull apart some cotton balls and leave a trail of bunny fur leading to their stash of eggs!
If you prefer an egg hunt on Easter morning, however, leave the cotton wool ‘fur’ sprawled all over the house or about the garden.
3. Leave some ‘bunny bait’ out
The Easter Bunny loves carrots. Despite delivering chocolate yumminess, sometime he likes to snack on something healthy to keep him going on his long night of Easter travels! So get the kids to leave him a carrot and some water to recharge his bunny batteries on Saturday night. Just nibble the carrot and have a sip of the water before you go to bed.
If your kids aren’t convinced that the Easter Bunny likes to be healthy, you could also make him some ‘bunny bait’ – using a small bowl or paper cup, mix up a collection of small foods like popcorn, pretzels, M&Ms and white chocolate. He won’t be able to resist stopping by!
4. Surprise them with magic eggs
After your little ones go to bed, dye the raw eggs you have in the fridge using food colouring. Pop the colourful shells back in the fridge and then act surprised that they’re now coloured when you pull them out to make breakfast!
Or if you can’t be bothered colouring them, draw some cute bunny faces on them using a black marker.
The Easter Bunny must have sprinkled his magic on them!
5. Paint their sleeping faces
This one is a bit Ross and Rachel from Friends, but if your kids are heavy sleepers, draw bunny noses and whiskers on their faces while they’re sleeping.
If you use a washable marker instead of face paint (that will smudge), it will wash off the next day. When they wake up, tell them to look in the mirror at what the Easter Bunny has done!
Tip: use a light-coloured washable marker, it will wipe clean with soap and water before you head out for the day if your child wants to de-bunny.
6. Bunny ‘poo’ trail
If your little ones are into poo humour, they’ll love this! And luckily the Easter Bunny’s scatterings are nicer than a regular bunny’s. Leave some magical bunny poo (or are they jelly beans?) either nearby the toilet or trailing towards their Easter egg stash. Yum!
However you choose to ‘prove’ that the Easter Bunny has come to your place, we wish all of our lovely Babyologists a very happy Easter!
