Well, if the Easter Bunny didn’t leave something adorable behind! These baby bunnies will keep your hard- or soft-boiled eggs warm and also serve as a great hiding spot for those yummy Easter Creme eggs! The kids will love playing finger puppets with them too! A small amount of yarn and a small amount of time will keep you from scrambling for Easter decorations. Get cracking!
