Easter Bunny Veggie Platter


We went to a cute little Easter party today for the toddlers. I crafted a Veggie Easter bunny tray.

I've done a few of these and this one is the easiest! If you are looking for a cute Easter bunny veggie platter check out this post to see how we crafted this little cutie!

How to make the Easter Bunny Veggie Platter


WHAT YOU NEED:
small piece of styrofoam
- veggie tray (I prefer a plastic)
- hot glue gun/glue
- toothpicks

Fresh Ingredients:
- 3-4 Cauliflower
- 1-2 bunches kale or lettuce
- 1 cucumber
- black olives or blueberries for eyes and nose
- variety of fresh veggies to cut up and serve


As usual, I start with a small piece of styrofoam which is cut and hot glued into the center of my plastic platter.




Mine is slightly different but I found  these plastic veggie trays which would work:



I got a white plastic veggie and dip tray, along with some styrofoam which I hot glued in the center.

Then, I took a head of cauliflower and attached it to the center with round toothpicks.


Next, I formed a head with larger florets. You will probably have to play around with them a little bit and pin them together with your toothpicks.




2 cucumber quarters become the ears also pinned with 3 toothpicks each and don't forget a cauliflower floret for the tail!


Make a bed of Kale around the bunny...


Then scatter some fresh veggies in Easter colors throughout the base. I was lucky to find the yellow and purple cauliflower but use carrots, cucumber, celery, cherry tomatoes, peppers... whatever you like!


Enjoy your veggie Easter Bunny!!! 


What a cute and healthy treat!
