Easter Countdown...

i saw this idea on Lolly Jane....and i just loved it!


i had my eye on these little bunny eggs from the dollar store...so i got a couple packs of them to do this project! i think they are just so cute! They come six to a pack, white and dark pink in one, purple and light pink in another.

i got the cookie sheet i used at the dollar store as well and spray painted it with some leftover spray paint i had..i did green on the bottom so they would be bunnies playing in the grass...and i just love that green:)
(the last pink on there on the bottom was a victim of a tragic farming accident...or just a run in with my children. don't worry, no bunnies or children were harmed during the making of this craft)
they are magnetized onto the cookie sheet, i got these magnets from walmart...

they have a little sticky foam backing so they are super easy to just stick on the eggs! i wrote on the bunnies' ears with my silver paint sharpie to count down 12 days before Easter!

i don't have a magic vinyl machine and i wanted to minimize costs so i printed out a heading and laminated it and put magnets on the back...i want to be able to use the cookie sheet for birthday countdowns for my kids because they LOVE being able to count down to big events!

so fun and simple and i really love looking at the bunnies:) we'll put small candies in them and probably an Easter themed activity we can do together,

SO CUTE! I'm headed to the dollar store tomorrow and will make sure to pick those eggs up!! I love your comments about the cricut and silohuette! It's definitely not for lack of trying on your part!! Maybe we should start a fund for you! :)
