Listen. I’m as excited for Easter as the kid next door. I can’t wait to hunt for eggs, eat lots of chocolate, and run around the yard on a sugar high. However, I’d like to do all of the above while also enjoying an adult beverage. Can you blame me? I’m sure those of you with your own little angels can relate. You can have at least one right?
My family likes to hold an annual egg hunt for the kiddos. When all the eggs have been found, they promptly start the annual beer hunt. Each adult brings a six pack of beer, and they’re all hidden in the yard. Finders keepers. If this doesn’t sound like the best hunt ever, you are no fun. It probably helps that Easter in Wisconsin can bring chilly temperatures, so your beers are ice cold upon opening. Take this weekend for example: I believe the area was just hit with an average of 4-6 inches of snow. Seriously.
I’m not as much of a beer drinker as I once was…I think all of the cheap beer in college ruined it for me. But when it comes time to participate in a beer can hunt, I would jump on board. Especially if the beers were all made into cute little bunnies like mine. It’s possible that’s setting the bar too high, but what’s a holiday without a little added holiday spirit?
I saw someone make a bunny out of a brown paper bag and my mind went immediately to the liquor store. I mean, brown paper bags….beer cans…I’m not the only one that put two and two together, right? Here’s a good tutorial on how to cut your bag into bunny ears. Fill the bag with a beer (or a soda for those of you good respectable citizens out there), and use a glue gun to glue on a cottontail. You may have to fold a little of the bag around the can, and the glue gun can secure it for you. Don’t bother trying to make one with a 40oz beer. It doesn’t work so well. Trust me.
I’m hoping to find these hidden all over my yard this weekend. If you feel like making one for me, make sure you don’t hide it too hard. It’s supposed to be 70 degrees and ain’t no one got time for hot beer.
You can print the cute little tag here. Even if you want to use it for something different (blasphemy!).
