I’m so excited to share Bunny Money as Our Humble Hive's inaugural post! My mom started doing Bunny Money when I was young and it has become one of our favorite traditions. I can vividly remember hunting for Bunny Money and spending it at the Bunny Store. When I realized that the Bunny Store stocked bright pink hair paint that you could use to dye a piece of your hair, I was in heaven. I’m sure it was something that my mom picked up for a few dollars, but I’d thought I had won the Easter lottery! I hope this inspires you to start your own Bunny Money tradition.
Instead of the usual Easter egg hunt with plastic candy filled eggs, fill your eggs with Bunny Money. Kids of all ages will be filled with delight as they gather enough "money" to shop at "the bunny store" where they can spend their Bunny Money on trinkets and treats. Young kids are eager to learn how to keep track of and count their money while choosing to spend it on items they want most. Older kids will be excited to buy those special things that you have stocked in the store just for them. If I'm being completely honest, the above hair dye story may have occurred when I was about 14 years old. This can also be a great way to have a fun a candy-free Easter egg hunt. Don't kids get enough candy around Easter anyway?
Keep dropping by this week and I will share fun ideas that I’ve used for making this unique tradition something to look forward to for kids of all ages. Whether you’re a mom with a small young family or a grandma with lots of grandchildren, these ideas can be easily adapted to be perfect for any family.
