Is the Easter Bunny Real? Yes! We have Easter Bunny Proof!One of my favorite days of the year is Easter morning. I love it when my wife and I are awakened by the excited voices of our four children asking if they can go down to see if the Easter Bunny came (they are looking for proof that the Easter Bunny came, which is the same thing that they do on Christmas morning to see if Santa Claus came.)
I remember many years ago when our oldest was still in preschool, the Easter Bunny made a special delivery one Easter morning. He gave Jack his first bike (and I’ve been told that the Easter Bunny got a great deal on that little bike…)
A week or so later, Becky and I took Jack into a local pet store, but not just any pet store. As we were walking in, Jack’s eyes lit up. He went running over to a large cage sitting on the ground near the cash register. Inside the cage was a fluffy white rabbit.
Jack turned to us with a huge smile and gave us the look, waiting for our approval to tell him that it was “OK” to pet him.
As Jack crouched down to pet him, he got really close to the bunny and said a soft voice, “Thank you for my new bike Easter Rabbit.”
Easter Bunny Proof!
As a child, I remember the Easter Bunny visiting our house. Each year with a helping “hand” from my parents, he would leave little hints to let us know that he was there.
He would leave a little trail of Easter Bunny footprints all over the house. The bunny-tracks could be found on the floor in the living room, in the kitchen, and on the stairs. He would even leave a trail on the counter and kitchen table!
He would even leave little cotton balls near our hidden Easter Baskets. We always assumed that it was from his furry coat.
How do you make bunny tracks stick to the ground?
Ok- so DO NOT tell the Easter Bunny that I told you this, but he told me once, that to make his tracks “stick” better, he likes to step into a little mixture of flour and water.
Just so you know- his tracks of flour/water are a little hard to clean up but worth every smile. Sometimes, we find out that the Easter Bunny was eating the Easter Eggs that we made!
The kids wondered if he would eat them – they even asked this while we were decorating eggs one year. I told them that he probably would… and we were right! It was hard not to act surprised when we saw that he left only the shells behind.
Luckily, the Easter Bunny uses plastic eggs for the Egg Hunt!
How do you make bunny paw prints?
The tracks are made by the Bunny the night before Easter. These bunny paw prints are so cute & they make a cute Easter morning surprise!
The Easter Bunny told us that sometimes parents will try to mimic his tracks with their thumb and three fingers. How funny! (It actually looks exactly the same- parents will do anything to find out his tricks!)
The Easter Bunny likes to change things up on us. Ever since our kids saw the movie “HOP”, we’ve noticed that the Easter Bunny has been leaving us Jelly Bean Treats around the house (If you haven’t seen this fun Easter Movie, you’ve got to watch it!
Do you leave carrots for the Easter Bunny?
Yes! We leave carrots for the Easter Bunny, but watch out! The Easter Bunny always makes such a mess after he eats them! He just leaves the leftover ones on the table with bite marks! Plus, he leaves the little carrot pieces all over our kitchen table.
When our youngest son was only a few years old, he said, “I know the Easter Bunny is real! See look at how he eats the carrots?”
It has to be the Easter Bunny because there is no way “Mom and Dad” are than messy, right?
Does the Easter Bunny leave a note?
We know the Easter Bunny is real because he always leaves proof.
The thing that we like the most about when he visits, is that he leaves a note (that smells like candy or vanilla spray since he is around candy all day long), reminding us about the real story of Easter and then we head off and find our hidden baskets & hidden eggs. Plus, he always finds the best Easter basket stuffers!
