Easter bunny craft: Great ideas on how to make your holidays more festive with a pair of ears

Easter wouldn’t be Easter if you didn’t make an Easter bunny with your kids. With these adorable craft ideas, you can keep people of all ages entertained for an entire weekend in the comfort of their own homes. But first, let’s take a look at where the legend of the Easter Bunny, who has become a symbol of the holiday in the Catholic world, came from.

Where does the Easter bunny come from?

Easter bunny craft for even more holiday spirit

An old German fairy tale mentions a bunny hiding painted eggs from children in the garden. Nowadays, parents hide Easter eggs of different sizes, colors and materials in hard-to-reach places, and children have the task of finding them. Prizes are also awarded – for the most eggs found, for the biggest or smallest egg. The basket in which the painted eggs are wrapped in straw is a symbolic reminder of the nest in which they were laid.

According to another tradition associated with the Easter Bunny, Simeon of Cyrene and his two children were in the crowd when Christ was led to Golgotha for crucifixion. One of his sons, Rufus, had a rabbit with him.

What would Easter be without the Easter bunny

Suddenly the cross fell to the ground, crushing the little animal. The boy’s frantic cry caused Jesus to turn around, and despite his fear, he touched the dead rabbit and made the sign of the cross. In an instant it came to life and ran away. Suddenly, however, it appeared under the cross of the crucified Christ.

When the disciples came to collect the Savior’s body that evening, the hare was still standing in the same place, its eyes red with tears and sorrow. People called this hare the Easter Bunny.
