An Australian Easter Bunny Story
The first bunny took the pink egg. He hopped over the bridge, ran through the bush and came straight to the children's garden. There was a tall strong wall all around the garden. The bunny made a big jump, but he jumped too high and when he landed on the other side the pink egg had broken.
The next bunny took the blue egg. He hopped over the bridge and into the bush. High up in a tree a bird sat in her nest. When he saw the bunny with the egg she called out, 'Give me the egg, give me the egg!". Before the bunny knew what was happening to him the bird had flown down and taken the egg in her beak and had carried it up to the nest. When the Mother heard about this she said, "You will have to wait a little longer too".
The Mother bunny was not pleased about this and she gave the next egg to the fourth bunny. This was a chocolate egg. The bunny carried the egg over the bridge and into the bush. Who was waddling in the farmyard next door (or bushland)? It was a big fat pig (or wombat). "Please let me fast just a little bit of the chocolate egg," he asked. Well, the pig licked a bit and the bunny licked a bit, and the pig licked a bit more and the bunny licked a bit more... until they realised, they had eaten all of the egg! When the bunny came home with a ring of chocolate around his little whiskers the Mother said, "You will have to wait a little longer too until you can be the real Easter bunny."
If I were organised enough I would have made seven of these finger puppets so the bunnies were all matching- maybe next year. I got the pattern at our Waldorf playgroup so it's not quite mine to share, but if you have a look at the photo you can see how simple they are to make and can probably cut a pattern out for yourself.
