Are you leaving the Easter bunny with only a carrot again this year?
Snaz it up with this magical Easter Bunny Food.
You’re kids will adore this tradition and they’ll remember it for ears, ahem, I mean years to come.
It also keeps your little ones busy while their excitement builds knowing the little bunny is going to leaves chocolate eggs all around the house in the morning.
What better way to curb their enthusiasm than to take them outside!
Why start this Easter Bunny food Tradition?
Whether you sprinkle this on the lawn, or place it in a bowl and leave it out for a special Easter Bunny snack here’s why it will make you feel awesome to start this tradition:
- The activity builds strong and meaningful life-long memories, especially if you do it yearly.
- It get your children off screens and connects your kids with nature
- It will help strengthen your child’s fine motor skills
- This bunny food won’t harm our wildlife and the environment either.
Another benefit, if you ditch the carrot and go with this activity instead, is that you don’t have to chow down on a carrot at 10.30 at night. Winning!
What you’ll need
- Hole punches: we used a small star punch and Bunny hole punch
- Grass (I used mondo grass, but any grass will do)
- Leaves (lots and lots of bright, pretty leaves: yellow, reds and oranges look best against the green grass)
- A few little flowers
How to make Easter Bunny Food
Watch the video
- Collect all the nature you need. There’s no need to rush this part. Enjoy the moment with your child and spend as much time outdoors as you can.
- Place all the natural materials out on a table.
- Let your child cut the grass into little bits and place it in a bowl.
- Encourage your child to use the hole punch to cut the bright leaves into shapes. Place them in a different bowl.
- Now your child can sprinkle the leaf shapes onto the grass and gently mix them with their fingers.
- Don’t forget to add a few little flowers!
How long will your Easter Bunny food last?
This is a hard question to answer.
The warmer your environment, the quicker the leaves and grass will fade and curl.
I suggest you make your food the day before Easter bunny comes. If you live in a warm environment, store your food in the fridge.
What should you do with the left over leaves?
Be sure to scatter your hole punched leaves outside! They’ll bring you so much joy every time you see them in your garden!
We’re only just starting this Easter bunny food tradition too. It’s so important to enjoy memorable moments like this as a family. These are the moments they remember and then it lives on when they have their own children.
I’m the certain the Easter Bunny will love them too *wink*.
