when they were old enough to ask this question they probably already know the answer-lol. I just smiled at my daughter and said "when your to old to believe in the easter bunny he doesn't come anymore ;) " i used the same theory with Santa Claus. Kids figure things out but honestly who wants to ruin the fun?
My daughter is looking me in the eye and saying " tell me". I have tried to avoid a direct answer but it is not good enough for her. This past Christmas , she found her presents by snooping - the kids at school all said there was no Santa - and I said " What do you think" = not good enough, so then i tried the " I believe in anyone who wants to bring me presents" and the 10 year old rolled her eyes and stomped off. Now it's the Bunny - she is very direct - can anyone help with a good answer?
Wait a minute, are you telling me there is Not an easter Bunny??<br />
And he told me he was just hippity hoppiting about.
The Easter Bunny never held the same fascination as Santa Claus did.<br />
My kids just figured it out on there own, each by their peers. <br />
If I mentioned the Easter Bunny, I would get this, "Is she kidding look".<br />
So, he just faded away!
my parents didnt tell me, me and my brother stayed up until late to check.. we put on nylons and paint so we would look like rabbits and not scare it. but we never found anything and got too tired to stay up..so we made a deal to try again the year after but it just became obvious after a while cause.. rabbits arent huge and they dont lay eggs !
Wait until they are old enough to just know (they will eventually find out on their own) - thats what my parents did - just say if you dont believe you dont receive - im not a parent though lol
