Move Over, Elf On The Shelf! Here Comes The Bunny in the Basket with the Golden Egg by Jennifer Diehl et al
SANTA HAS HIS ELVES,
AND THE EASTER BUNNY HAS HELPERS, TOO!
WE ARE HIS BUNNIES WITH THE BASKETS
AND HAVE A GOLDEN EGG FOR YOU!
The famous Elf on the Shelf has done such a good job of reporting the naughty and nice to Santa that the Easter Bunny has decided to send his own minions out before he brings all those baskets.
The Bunny in the Basket is a cute little shelf sitter whose mission is to monitor kids' behavior before Easter. But in addition to surveillance, this Bunny has another stratagem in his basket--the Golden Egg, which his helpers hide every night (after good kids have gone to bed, of course). But the kids' job begins the next morning!
NEXT YOU WILL SEARCH FOR THE EGG MADE OF GOLD
WHERE WILL YOU FIND IT? WHAT WILL IT HOLD?
NOW IT'S YOUR TURN. TAKE TIME TO WRITE BACK!
DRAW ME A PICTURE, OR PACK ME A SNACK!
The child's message goes back in the egg, which then goes back to The Bunny in the Basket.
And parents, you know what to do next!
VOILA'! The egg is hidden again, now with eggs-pert advice inside on being good from the head Bunny himself, encouraging all those niceties that kids need to know.
WHAT WILL THE MESSAGE INSIDE THE EGG SAY?
WHATEVER IT SAYS, YOU MUST TAKE IT TO HEART
--AND IF YOU DO,
YOU'LL FIND A SPECIAL EASTER BASKET
JUST FOR YOU!
The Bunny in the Basket comes in a kit with the Egg and the book, The Bunny With The Basket & The Golden Egg (Just Three Chicks, 2015) by three moms with young children. Authors Jennifer Diehl, Shauna Murray, and Lisa Rettino have come up with a way to involve young children in the fun of anticipating a holiday treat while motivating good behavior (not to mention art and writing), all along with the fun of a daily treasure hunt. With easy verses and jolly illustrations (an off-duty Santa in summer garb sharing a lemonade with the Big Bunny himself) this activity kit offers egg-cellent fun for the preschool set.
