Add some extra fun to your Easter egg hunt with these printable Easter bunny footprints! The kids will love the excitement of following the prints to their Easter treats. Let's face it, chocolate egg hunts can become excessive so these footprints will of course work for any Easter-themed scavenger hunt you have planned. They are also perfect for students and classroom festivities.
When coming up with this printable I decided that traditional pink feet weren't enough. Although traditionally a bunny's footprints are actually pink, as a boy mum, I thought some blue ones could be fun too! Then I went to the next step and also added some black and white printable Easter bunny footprints to the template. I know many of you don't have colour printers or prefer to save on ink so these will help.

Whilst I am focusing on Easter hunts here today, this template download is so versatile. It is a great resource for classroom activities as well as at-home fun and parties. Here are just a few suggestions to get you inspired on how you could use these feet:
Using signs or footprints for your scavenger hunt is great, especially for younger children. Some may not quite understand the concept of an Easter egg hunt. Guide them on their search and finding their treasures will be a hoot!
Throwing together an Easter egg hunt with these footprints can be as simple as you would like it to be. However, I thought I would give you a few ideas and alternatives:
We've already touched on the three different sets of bunny footprints – pink, blue and black and white/colouring versions. If you are only wanting one colour, you do not need to print them all. There are two footprints per page in the same colour so simply print as many copies as you need of that page.
The size of the colouring and activity page is 8.5×11″. You can also print it on A4 paper. If you would like the exact size then ensure the printer settings are set to “Actual Size” or 100% scale. You can use the “Fit to Page” settings for A4 printing however just be aware that the size of your feet will scale slightly smaller to fit.
This brings me to my next point: you can create smaller bunny prints with your printer settings. Use the “Scale” setting to shrink the page smaller. Play around with the percentages on this screen and will be able to see how it changes in the print preview.
In addition to scaling, you can also print multiple scaled pages onto one page. For example, if I scale the pages to 30% I can then use the “Multiple” setting to fit as many pages onto one. Note that printer dialogue boxes/settings can vary so you may need to look around for something similarly named the “Multiple” setting.
As for which paper to print on, heavier paper or cardstock works best (something similar to 8.5×11 80lb or A4 220gsm). Depending on where you intend on using your bunny footprints, you could get away with using lighter paper.
You can use tape, blue tac or something similar if you need to secure your footprints to the ground.
In addition to printable Easter bunny footprints, I also have other free Easter printables that you will find in the library. Currently, that includes three different types of Easter candy wrapping and a cute Easter Bunny garland template.
