Trampolining Bunny Easter Hat…and a catch up

It’s been a while since I posted, so this is going to be rather photo-filled as I catch you up with what we’ve been up to!

My sister and her family have been visiting from Hong Kong for the past few weeks, so we’ve had some large family outings gatherings, culminating in a special party last weekend celebrating our parents’ 50th wedding anniversary!

I’ll start with the hat for the annual school Easter Hat Parade, even though it was a while ago now! Our son is in 6th grade, so this will be the last (I assume!) hat we’ll make 😦 And it didn’t turn out quite as well as we’d pictured it, but it was quite unique so I’ll share it with you anyway.

We try and match the hat to his current favourite things…but it was hard to come up with a new theme this year. After much thinking it dawned on me that he has been loving jumping on the trampoline – and so we decided to incorporate that into the hat, and have the Easter Bunny jumping and having his eggs bounce around too!

Bunny Butt Easter Hat

It’s coming up to that time of year that we all love…the Easter Hat Parade! Our school will be holding the parade mid next week, just before we break for school holidays.

In previous years we have created hats in the theme of the current favourite characters. Last year we had a Harry Potter-inspired hat, the year before it was How To Train Your Dragon, we’ve also done Pikachu and Angry Birds…you get the idea! But this year our son decided he just wanted to go Easter themed.

As I was searching Pinterest for inspiration, I came across some ‘bunny butt’ designs which I had noticed in previous years, but not pinned. Now they are, and you can see them here and here! They are on my Easter Pinterest board.

It seemed the time had come to create a Bunny Butt Easter Hat lol
