Give the little guy a hand (or um, paw?) this year with these ideas that will delight your kiddos.

You'll be astonished when you pull out your ingredients for Easter breakfast: That trickster bunny got into the food coloring and left pastel-dyed raw eggs alongside purple-tinted milk! (Psst: It only takes a couple drops if you want to replicate the gag.)
Looks like the Easter Bunny took a bite out of these carrots the kids left for him. Arrange for him to also leave chocolate-covered raisins or peanuts in his path -- the kids will laugh because they look like bunny poop!
The rabbit baked these cute cookies with his paw imprint. To make your own, slice and bake store-bought cookie dough. When done, press measuring spoons into the warm dough for prints. Whisk light corn syrup with a bit of water, brush into indents, and sprinkle on colored sugar.
A path of jelly beans that leads to your child's Easter basket -- complete with false turns and dead ends -- makes a game of finding her treat. The hunt finishes with a basket with a surprise secret compartment. On top is a Plush Easter Finger Puppet ($12 per dozen), "bunny money" (gold foil-wrapped egg candies), and other treats (Solid Chocolate Russian Eggs, $4 each; Large Foiled Carrot, $5 each).
Try this alternative to the classic basket: Kids will be delighted to discover the Easter Bunny has left them an enormous gold-colored egg. To make your own, transform oversize plastic eggs (3-Piece Jumbo Nested Eggs, $20; Michaels stores) with a coat of gold spray paint and fill with holiday treats.
