Over the course of this past Easter we may have used the old easter bunny as a threat a couple of times….
I mean there’s nothing quite like keeping children on edge thinking they could be busted for their nonsense behavior any second of the day…..
So one day there, close to my wit’s end from the building excitement of the bunny’s impending visit, I may have made the suggestion that “Dad saw something white and fluffy hopping in the backyard”……
Before we knew it the 6 kids were on the hunt for what could only be the super fluffy easter bunny!
Now I am certain most children would have looked at me funny and told me the rabbit was not in our yard, but with the wild imaginations of this bunch we had lures and bunny traps set up in no time.
I kid you not, these children were on a mission to trap the bunny and negotiate the early transaction of chocolate.
Out of the fridge went my fresh lettuce, out of the cupboard went a good bowl, as did a few washing baskets from the laundry…
I am kicking myself for not taking photos of the children building their bunny traps, the pics would have been priceless in years to come. I did however get woken up the following morning by one rather excited Veruca.
I missed recording her first explanation of what had happened in the yard overnight, but was quick enough to grab my phone and record her on her second attempt.
This footage gives me a great giggle every time I watch it.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
