Is That the...the...Easter Bunny?!

We are HUGE "believers" in our house.  If there is a holiday or tradition that promotes magic and/or believing in something that doesn't exist, well, then we will do all we can to make it real (you know, for the kids).  I give 100% of the credit for this to my man.  He has a huge imagination and an even huger....creative streak. ;)  So, last year my 8-year-old daughter was getting a little skeptical about the Easter Bunny so Matt (my man, as it were) staged this pic as proof...

See the Easter Bunny's shadow?  The ears, head and body?  It's enough to promote belief but not enough to call for questions (like, "why does the Easter Bunny at the mall smell like barf?).  You're loving it, right?  

All he did was 1.) cut the torso, head and ear shape as one piece out of a piece of poster board.

2.) Tape it to the outside of the window.

3.) Set up a plug-in spot light shining from the outside of the window onto the cut out.  We got the best results by angling the spot light up while keeping it close to the house.

4.) Adjust the blinds to the right angle to catch the best light.

It might take a little playing around with the angle of the light and the angle of the blinds to get it just right, but trust me, the proof it provides on Easter morning is worth it!
