Supplies to Make Easter Bunny Bait To Sprinkle in Your Yard
Very similar to reindeer food, these bunny food jars only take a few supplies:
- Glass jars – These are the exact jars that I used for my Easter bunny food.
- Rolled oats
- Easter or Spring-colored sprinkles – These are the ones that I used
- Ribbon of choice
- Free printable Easter Bunny Bait tags
- Hole punch
- Paper or funnel – This is optional, but it helps if you’ll be making this bunny food with your kids.
- White card stock
- Glitter (optional)
How to Make Easter Bunny Bait for Your Yard
Step 1: Print and cut the free printable bunny food tags.

Then, print the tags on white card stock so they’re nice and sturdy for your gifts. Use scissors or a paper trimmer to cut out each individual tag, and punch a hole in the top of the tags so they can be tied on to your glass jars.
Step 2: Fill your glass jars with Easter Bunny Bait.
Next, it’s time to make the bunny food for your lawn.
Just add a tablespoon or two of the rolled oats to your glass jar. You can use a paper “funnel” or a real funnel to make it easier, especially if you’ll be making the bunny bait with kids.
Then, add some of the Easter sprinkles to the jar and, if you don’t mind getting glitter in your grass, add that in also. Put the lid on the glass jar, and shake it gently so the Easter bunny bait gets mixed up.
Step 3: Tie the gift tags to your bunny food jars.
Thread ribbon through the hole in the top of your printable tag and tie the tag to the bunny food jar. Finish with a pretty bow.
Step 4: Sprinkle the Easter Bunny Bait in your yard the night before Easter.
Here’s the fun part!
On the night before Easter, go outside and sprinkle the Easter bunny bait in your front yard to attract the Easter bunny. The Spring-colored sprinkles and the shine from the glitter will lead him straight to your house!
And of course, you can also leave out some carrots on the front porch to attract the Easter bunny also!
