Animal Crossing islanders the world over are waist deep in eggs as the Bunny Day event proceeds in New Horizons. From April 1 through the 12, players can find six kinds of painted eggs tucked into various hiding spots throughout the game. These eggs can be used to craft seasonal decor and clothing: from an egg-shaped wardrobe, to an egg-shaped clock, to a bed that's a giant basket of eggs! Eggs, eggs, eggs! Did we mention eggs?

Bunny Day has hopped its way into Animal Crossing: New Horizons!

A slightly miserable bunny and a few too many eggs.

Players may have noticed one Zipper T. Bunny, the somewhat unsettling harbinger of the official Bunny Day celebration hopping around their island on April 1. Did you pop out of Timmy and Tommy’s store after a little shopping to find a dead-eyed person (human?) in a rabbit suit dancing around, twisting and turning to always face you no matter where you might run? That’s Zipper! According to the “rabbit,” if you craft every Bunny Day item–which will be marked accordingly in the DIY App on your Nook Phone–Zipper will bestow unto you a special gift on April 12 when he returns after being away just long enough for us to miss him.

Given the response online, players have been inundated with eggs, but just in case you’re missing that one type of egg you need to craft that egg-shaped lamp, here’s how to get each type of egg throughout the event:

Leaf: Shake trees or find them growing in sets of three in some trees each day.

Earth: Dig up cracks in the ground where you normally find fossils.

Sky: Pop specially painted balloons with your slingshot.

Water: Fish them out of the river and ocean.

Rock: Hit rocks with your shovel.

Wood: Hit trees with an axe, particularly coconut trees which produce more.

Already dug up the all the Earth eggs or smacked all the rocks around the island? Not to worry. Simply hop on a plane and do some Island Tours with Nook Mile Tickets to find loads of eggs on randomly generated islands!

Beyond surreal rabbit costumes that invoke The Shining, there’s a second seasonal event taking place in the same span of days as Zipper’s egg-a-palooza! As if there weren’t enough to do for Bunny Day, April 1 through the 12 is also cherry blossom season for players in the Northern Hemisphere. What this means is that many of your island’s trees’ leaves have turned a light pink as cherry blossoms bloom. Players can catch floating blossom petals lazily drifting around the island and if they’re lucky, they can also find some special DIY recipes in regularly colored balloons for cherry blossom themed decorations and accessories.

I, for one, have been going feral keeping my eyes to the skies for balloons containing those cherry blossom designs! So many painted balloons raining egg after egg down on me when I just want to make a cute pink umbrella! Nevertheless, I’ve always had a fondness for Easter, so I’ve been enjoying Bunny Day. It’s making me all the more excited for future events in New Horizons and I think giving the players a week or so to breath and collect everything they need for the seasonal furniture was a smart move on the developer’s part. Are there perhaps a few too many water eggs floating around when I’m trying to fish? Sure. However, I’ve been having fun setting up a display for my neighbors to celebrate with and look forward to the teased Earth Day event that should be coming later this month.

What to choose can be a herculean task in and of itself that sometimes takes so long you give up and watch something familiar instead. Television is an ever-changing landscape.
