This time of year, with bunnies all around, I always like to read books by Margaret Wise Brown. The Runaway Bunny, by Margaret Wise Brown and pictures by Clement Hurd, is a sweet story of a rabbit’s devotion to her little bunny. The little bunny in the story tells his mother that he is going to runaway and try to hide from her. Everywhere that he thinks of going, his mother is quick with an excuse to be right by his side. A simple game of hide and seek is always fun to play. Try a twist to the game and play Hint Hide and Seek!
Hint Hide and Seek!
In this game of hide and seek, think very carefully about where you are going to hide or even maybe hide your favorite stuffed animal or plastic eggs. Give your seeker a clue by naming something that will be in the same room or a color that is next to the hiding spot. Have fun giving clues and hints!
Bunny Carrot Brownies
Makes 24 brownies
1 ½ cups of unsweetened cocoa powder
8 T. Just Eggs (or any egg substitute to equal 4 eggs)
½ cup of vegetable oil
1 stick of plant based butter melted
2 cups of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ¼ cups of flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 large carrots finely grated
Colored writing icing
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Take a 13×9 inch brownie pan and fold aluminum foil to fit across the bottom and up the two shorter sides for easy removal. Spray the pan with no-stick spray and set to the side. In a large mixing bowl cream together the egg substitute, sugar, plant based butter, oil, vanilla, cocoa powder and salt. Then stir in your grated carrots and flour until all combined. Pour into prepared pan and bake for about 20 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in the middle comes out with moist crumbs. Let the brownies cool a bit before cutting into squares. To make bunnies on top, take a vegan marshmallow and cut it into two even circles. Cut one half in 2, making 2 half moon shapes. Place the circle on the brownie and 2 half moon shapes on top to become ears! Use small tubes of colored writing icing to decorate your bunnies and make cute faces!
