10 quick and easy ideas for a bunny party

Every year we ask our daughter what kind of a birthday she would like to have. This year a bunny birthday party was what my daughter wanted - and that is what she got!

It was fun planning this 5th birthday bash, looking for a wide variety of bunny-related merchandise and thinking of different ways of having bunny-tastic fun, so I wanted to show what we did and share my ideas here too. So here it is - a bunny birthday party done easy... I have gathered here some ideas for very easy crafts, and easy foods to serve to kids, as well as some links to great products for little bunnies. Check the end of the post for the full list of recommended items.

1. Easy bunny-themed food!

Labelling normal food with bunny-themed names works a treat! Carrot and cucumber sticks with some dips are perfect bunny food - label them as bunny snacks.  Marshmallows on the other hand are perfect bunny tails. You could also offer bunny noses (pink candies) or carrot juice (any orange-coloured juice really). Cupcakes can be easily decorated with small carrot cake decorations to make them more bunny themed. 

2. Get a bunny cookie cutter

Biscuits and sandwiches are always a big winner, so I used a bunny cookie cutter to make bunny shapes. Kids absolutely loved these  - they were labelled as ham bunnies, and cheese bunnies and biscuit bunnies. This is my favourite biscuit recipe - kids love the flavour and the biscuits stay true to shape. 

3. Bunny droppings...

As an extra special treat, I also offered chocolate raisins - and labelled them as bunny droppings. I figured kids would find it absolutely hilarious, you know, kids and poop... Word of warning though - bunny droppings is a bit too advanced language for young kids, so just label the chocolate raisins as bunny poop. Something I wish I had done after I had to explain the tenth time bunny droppings means bunny poop...

4.  Easy-peasy bunny cake

I usually make the cake for birthday parties, but since we had just had a baby, I wanted to minimise the hassle but still have a stunner bunny cake. So, I bought a shop-made, white, decorate your own cake, cake pens, and modelling icing. I made bunny ears from the modelling icing, stuck them on the cake and used the cake pens to draw the bunny face and the ears. Job done! 

As a tip though, you need to make the ears minimum 12 hours before to ensure they are hard enough. Also, I had to support the ears using a straw behind them - due to their size and weight they kept falling and breaking. Smaller ears would likely stand without extra support.

5. Bunny themed cups and plates

I bought simple white cups, and used felt tip pens to draw a bunny face on. Bonus - you can draw the same face the cake has! For plates you could buy plain white plates, and glue simple white carton ears on the back to make them bunny plates. Obviously, you can just buy bunny-themed cups and plates too if you don't have time. 

6. Bunny ears for the kids

You could buy them - you can find fairly cheap ones online - or be even thriftier and make your own! There are a few different ways of making bunny ears, including paper or felt.

7. Easy rabbitty decorations

Carrots. Seriously, just go buy carrots with their green stems on them, dot them around the place. Such an easy way to decorate, and you can eat them afterwards. Bonus! I bought also rabbit foot prints online for decorations, but forgot to put them up... I think there might be another bunny party coming up in a year as our new baby grows up ha ha. Gotta use those decorations somewhere! 

8. Fun bunny entertainment

We had a wide variety of entertainment for the kids, including a sand-water table, chalks and a bubble machine. For extra bunny-themed entertainment, you could hide toy carrots in the garden and get your bunnies to look for them, or ask the kids to play pin the tail. You can get pin the tail bunny games online, so don't even have to craft it yourself! You could also get the kids dance for a bit - the song "Sleeping bunny" is a great one little kid always love to play along. 

9. "Carrot" bubble wands

Buy orange bubble wands, tie green string on the end -  and there you have a carrot wand. You can either have this as part of the fun at the party or include it in the party bags. 

10. Party bags for little bunnies

I bought carrot shaped party-bags - these were brilliant! I filled them with a variety of general party-bag stuff, but you could also include more bunny related items such as the "carrot" bubble wands, or marshmallows (bunny tails) and chocolate raisins  (bunny poop). I also saw very cute bunny-shaped party bags online, or if you want to get crafty, an easy way is just to get white party bags and draw a bunny face on them.
