Did you know that the Easter Bunny leaves white, snowy, magical footprints behind on Easter morning?  Well, at least he does at our house!  The kids have just as much fun tracking the Easter Bunny’s footprints through the yard as they do finding their Easter eggs.  And guess what?  The {magical} footprints are quite easy to make!

Supplies

TIDBITS&TWINE Bunny Footprint Supplies

  • Footprint template {can be downloaded here}
  • Flour {or powdered sugar}
  • Sifter
  • Small Plate
  • Garbage Can

 

Step 1: Print Footprint Template

Below is my Easter Bunny footprint template for you to use.  You can click and save the photo or you can use {this link}.

I recommend printing this on a heavier paper, like cardstock, for this project because it holds up better underneath the weight of the sifted flour and you will be less likely to leave a trail of magical bunny dust behind as you hop along.

Step 2: Cut

Cut our the pink ovals to create your template.  I like to use curved nail scissors for this job because they are small and the curved tips making cutting the ovals a bit easier.

Step 3: Dust With Magical Bunny Fur {aka Flour}

I prefer to use flour for this activity to as to attract fewer bugs, but you could just as easily use powdered sugar.  The benefit to powdered sugar, of course, is that it tastes much better should your kids sample it!  Simply use a sifter to sprinkle a layer of flour into the openings of the template.  When done sifting, place the sifter back on the plate so that you do not accidentally spill any flour outside of the template.

Step 4: Discard Excess

This step I learned as a result of lots of practice!  It is very important to dump the excess flour off of your template into a garbage can, bucket, bowl, etc. after each use.  The flour quickly builds up on the template and will easily spill as you move from footprint to footprint, not only leaving a trail behind you, but also creating fuzzy edges on your footprints.

I usually make a series of footprints that lead from the garden into the house and another series that looks as if the Easter Bunny is leaving the house.  We always do our egg hunts outside, but you can just as easily do this project indoors so long as you don’t mind a bit of a mess.  :)

 

Have a wonderful weekend and Hoppy Easter!

    • Very true if it was a real bunny, but the Easter Bunny my kids see at the mall is always walking on 2 feet, so I thought it best to mimic what they know. :)

  1. Kim,
    Besides, how would Mr. Bunny carry the eggs he’s hiding if he was on all 4’s. I love this idea. I will definitely tell my daughter-in-laws about it for our granddaughters. Another fun one is to have toddlers plant jelly beans and the easter bunny leaves leaves a treat.
    Have a wonderful Easter with your family.
    Karen

    • Karen – Great point!!! I’ve never heard of the jelly bean idea but I love it. Thanks for sharing! Happy Easter!
