I first did this a years ago (just before I started this blog) when my children were really young. My husband and I created a magical Easter Bunny Footprint Trail around the sidewalks of our house and sprinkled Easter eggs around it. It was SO FUN! I can’t wait to show you how simple it was to pull off:) Kids of all ages will appreciate this special touch on Easter.
Easter Bunny Trail
If we asked our kids to hop like a bunny, they would hop with both feet together (as most kids would). So, we wanted to make sure that the trail made it look like the Easter Bunny hopped around the way they imagined he would- with both paws together!
Our kids were really young (one was still crawling), so we made the Easter egg hunt pretty easy for them. If your kids are older, make the bunny trail but make the Easter egg hunt a bit more challenging! When you are done, simply use a broom to sweep away the paws or wash away the bunny paws with and hose and water.
I used an aluminum baking pan and scissors to create the bunny prints. That way, the extra flour stays in the pan. If you don’t have one of those aluminum pans right now, consider using anything you do have! A paper plate will work well, construction paper could work too. Or, consider using sidewalk chalk and simply drawing the paws on. However you do this, your kids will be SO surprised and happy:)
