Easter Cupcake Toppers - free download

I decided to make Easter cupcakes for my daughter's preschool tomorrow. I added "Happy Easter" and "Jesus" paper cupcake toppers to go with:
It's not a Christian school, so these toppers will really just be for our extended family and the preschoolers will simply enjoy a special treat in honor of the Easter celebration. (With assorted sprinkles, of course!)  :-) 

But ... I've uploaded the cupcake topper daisy artwork as a free download for you. You can use them on cupcakes, or any other cake/treat, or even string them into a spring-colored Easter banner. To go on cake or cupcakes, glue a "Happy Easter" back to back with a "Jesus" topper and a toothpick in the middle will stick it right in place. For a banner, glue them along a pretty ribbon and decorate your fireplace mantel or Easter buffet.

(This is a .pdf file. An 8 1/2 x 11 page that opens with Adobe Acrobat Reader.)

Now, I have no idea how bunnies worked their way into the Easter holiday. It's not the focus at our house, but my little ones made these two adorable buck-toothed bunnies at a recent party:
They make me laugh and the kids had a ball making them. My wonderful friend pulled the whole thing together for a preschool spring break activity. Jelly beans poured into [clean] children's socks, cinched at the neck with a ribbon, rubber bands to top the head, then snipped at the cuff of the sock to create two floppy ears:
Now, I recommend dry beans or something other than tasty treats that your child may suck on THROUGH the sock in the car on the way home!  Note the interesting belly on the pink one! :-)

I do hope you have a blessed Easter, remembering Jesus' sacrifice for our sins, His gift of eternal life!
