Bunny Costumes and Easter Dress Up

Everyone loves the Easter Bunny. Much like Santa Claus in December, you can find find photo opportunities in malls across America for kids to meet and greet the Easter rabbit himself. If you're a parent who brings your kids for an annual visit with the Easter bunny, wouldn't it be more exciting if you were in that bunny rabbit costume instead of some stranger? If you’re planning on some fun for the family this Easter, nothing adds more fun than dressing up! We’re not talking about putting on your Sunday best as you head out to Easter worship, but putting on an bunny costume and getting your hop on.

One of the most well-known Easter traditions is receiving a visit from the Easter Bunny, who hides eggs for children to find. The tradition of Easter eggs comes from the old custom of fasting during Lent and has been coupled with a 300+-year-old German tradition of eggs being brought to children by the Easter Hare. If you want to be the real deal this year and bring some Easter joy without the hassle of an Easter bunny costume rental, here are some fun Easter dress up ideas.
