They're off! The Easter bunnies race across the floor ... it's the pink bunny ... no, it's the blue bunny. It's ... it's ... lots of fun no matter who wins!

What You'll Need:

2 pieces of cardboard about 12 inches long

Pencil

Scissors

Markers

Two 10-inch pieces of string

Cut 2 Easter bunny shapes from the heavy cardboard. Color the front and back of the bunnies with markers.

With the pencil, punch a hole through the middle of each bunny just below the head -- punch from the front to the back so the edges of the hole are smooth.

Thread a piece of string through the hole in each rabbit. Tie one end of each string to the leg of a table, just high enough so that the rabbit's legs touch the floor. Back up, taking the rabbits with you, to the end of the string. Stand the rabbits up, making them lean toward the table a little.

When you jerk the string, the rabbits will walk toward the table. (Bunnies walk best on smooth floor or low carpet.) The first Easter bunny to reach the table wins!
