You might change your mind after you hear about these Easter bunny alternatives from other countries.

Switzerland: The Easter Cuckoo
Australia: The Easter Bilby (It’s a marsupial. I suppose the             pouch would help with egg carrying.)
France: The Easter Bell. (It flies…with a suitcase.)

I love hearing about unique holiday traditions! 🙂 Start a classroom tradition of your own with these awesome Easter activities that support important classroom skills.

Students focus on decomposing numbers with this simple idea!
