Getting to Know the Easter Bunny!

Posted on 03-20-2016 | Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy of Spring

We would all recognize the long ears, soft fur, and fluffy tail of the Easter bunny if we saw it. Whether you meet him at the mall or at the park, it’s hard not to bump into the furry icon this time of year. The Easter Bunny is a very familiar part of the Easter season but how did it come to be that way? Many traditions and “mascots” of the holiday seasons have interesting stories behind them!

The tradition of celebrating the Easter Bunny can be traced back as far as the 1700s! German immigrants settling in Pennsylvania brought their tradition of the egg-laying hare called “Osterhare” where children would make a nest for the hare and it would lay colorful eggs in the nests. The tradition has obviously since developed into Easter egg hunts and sweet treats and photo-ops with the “Osterhare.” Amidst the folklore surrounding the Easter bunny, many have made the assumption that he lives on Easter Island – but that’s simply not true! The island was so named because it was discovered on an Easter Sunday but it cannot claim to be the permanent residency of the Easter Bunny – that still remains a mystery!

A lot of other mystery surrounds the Easter Bunny, and many other lovable folk-story characters. If you have a child who loves story time or reading at home, talking about these imaginary characters can lead to some fun playtime and is a great way for your child to use critical and creative thinking skills! With a preschooler or toddler in the house, there are always opportunities to encourage learning. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Spring, we love welcoming our students every day and watching them flourish under the compassionate care of our qualified teachers.
