In our house, the Easter Bunny is “the” main Easter thing. My kids look forward (well since Valentines Day) to him coming. They try to think ahead as to where the clever bunny might leave eggs. If they were the bunny where would they hide things. They wonder about what is going to be in those eggs. They wonder where the basket will hide, and what hints the bunny will give to help them find the basket. See in the basket, the bunny leaves “bunny money”. This can be dollar bills, five dollar bills, ten dollar bills or the extremely rare and coveted twenty dollar bill. That rare bill has only been seen once, when Belle’s birthday happened to fall on Easter, but the girls hold out every year that they too might get one. So how do you make “bunny money”? They are so simple, yet so much more fun then just handing over cash.
Lay the dollar bill horizontal and fold the bottom up a third.
Fold the top down a third.
Take the left side and fold it over just shy of half way.
Take the right side and fold it over just shy of half way.
Turn over dollar bill, and fold each “ear” into a point.
Flip back over. Add a pink nose and eyes. I drew mine one, but I have been known to put on googley eyes.
And your done. See super easy, and way cuter then just plain old bills. So what does the bunny leave in your baskets? Are your kids excited?
