The Bunny Hop – Relay race in which each contestant must hop around an object, like a fake carrot available at craft stores, wearing bunny ears and holding a ball or balloon between their legs as they hop.
Bunny Tag – Traditional tag, but with players must hop like a rabbit.
Carrot Toss – Ring-toss around a craft-store carrot.
Pin The Nose (or Tail) on the Bunny – Draw a bunny face or full bunny on a piece of poster paper. Cut out construction paper noses or use cotton balls with pieces of rolled tape on the back.
Bunny Balloons – Use a marker to draw a bunny face on a helium balloon and attach a pair of construction paper ears.
I learned about this cute treat via Twitter (@GvilleRabbits, @bunE). The recipe is from the National Watermelon Promotion Board and involves some carving and some attachment of features with toothpicks. I’m a little doubtful in my ability to recreate this, but if you could do it, I think it would be a real hit at a summer party.
Easter is just around the corner, and hopefully many of you are aware of the Make Mine Chocolate campaign which advocates giving chocolate bunnies instead of real bunnies as gifts. To extend upon that theme, here is a list of other Easter Bunny confections you may enjoy!
