This is a guide to Bunny Day, an Easter-themed event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH) for the Nintendo Switch. If you want to know when Bunny Day is active, where to find eggs, as well as where you can find the Bunny and what DIY Recipes you can obtain, read on!

When is Bunny Day (Easter)?

Bunny Day Dates

Availability April 1st, 2020 @5:00 AM ~ April 12th

Begins on April 1st at 5 AM!

The Bunny Day Event begins on April 1st, but it cannot be played until after 5:00 AM. This is when the day starts for all events in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. If you have your Switch's time changed to a date other than the present, you will need to set it between April 1st and 12th to participate.

Ends on April 12th

BunnyDay1
On April 12th, Isabelle will make an announcement that Bunny Day has arrived. This will be the final day of the event, and special features will be available on this day which are not accessible on previous days of the event.

How to Start the Bunny Day Event

Your Switch needs to have the correct time

Switch Time and Date
If the date of your Switch doesn't match the date and time of the Bunny Day event, you won't be able to participate. If you're a time traveller, you'll need to revert the date and time to match real time.

Time Traveling Guide

Connect to the Internet

If your Nintendo Switch has not connected to the Internet since before midnight on April 1st, the Bunny Day Event will not start, even if your in-game clock is on the correct date.

Although a notification for an Update will not occur, your Switch will still need to connect to the Internet to gain access to the event.

What Do You Do On Bunny Day?

April 1st to 11th

Talk to Zipper

Talk to Zipper
From April 1st, Zipper (a big Easter Bunny) can be found somewhere on your island (you may need to search around a bit, but if Isabelle makes the announcement about Bunny Day, he is there!). Talk to him first for an introduction and some help on how to participate in the event.

The first time you talk to Zipper, he will give you the recipe for a Bunny Day Bed and tell you that you can get something special for getting all of the Bunny Day recipes before the event ends. After the first day you meet Zipper, you won't be able to meet him again until April 12th.

Go on an Egg Hunt!

Dig up Eggs
After you've talked to Zipper (and before, for that matter), you should start collecting eggs and recipes. Zipper will inform you that there are six types of eggs (mentioned above), so use your shovel, fishing rod, slingshot, and axe to hunt as many eggs as you can!

Find Easter-themed DIY recipes

In addition to the eggs you can find throughout your island, there are plenty of recipes to be found as well. They can be obtained from Zipper, as well as in bottles on the beach, and found in presents from shooting down balloons. You will need to collect them all for a special prize from Zipper at the end of the event.

Use the Eggs for DIY

Bunny Day Egg DIY
The eggs you find can be used to build special DIY items with the recipes you find. Unlike previous games where you are simply given Easter themed items, this time you'll be given the chance to make the ones you want instead!

April 12th

BunnyDay2.jpg
On April 12th, the other Villagers on the island will be decked out in Bunny Day-themed outfits! They'll even egg you on to gather more of the eggs and Recipes around the island, and it seems that these items can be found at a higher rate than on other days.

Find Zipper outside Resident Services

BunnyDay4.jpg
Zipper will appear again on April 12th, this time waiting in front of Resident Services. Speaking to him this time will allow you to get an Bunny Day Arch DIY Recipe for free!

Zipper will also provide a few new services, such as trading any 3 of the same egg for 1 of any other kind of egg, which can be a huge help for players who are missing one of the kinds of eggs.

He'll also give a Bunny Day Basket (Item) to players who give him 1 of each type of egg in exchange – that said, getting the Basket is not necessary to complete the Bunny Day Event.

Complete the Bunny Day Event

Bunny Day Wand.jpeg
When you've crafted all the Bunny Day-themed DIY Recipes, with the exception of the Clothing items, Zipper will give you a Wobbling Zipper Toy DIY Recipe.

It doesn't have much use on its own aside from being a cute piece of Furniture, but the Wobbling Zipper Toy can be used as a DIY Material for the Bunny Day Wand. You can obtain the Bunny Day Wand DIY Recipe by talking to Zipper after crafting the Wobbling Zipper Toy.

The Bunny Day Wand can be used to magically change your clothing at any time. However, you'll need to obtain Star Fragments from a Shooting Star to craft it.

How to Get Star Fragments from a Shooting Star

Where to Find Eggs

There are six types of eggs

Leaf Eggs Wood Eggs
Bunny Day - Leaf EggShake trees with eggs on them Bunny Day - Wood EggHit trees with your axe
Sky Eggs Stone Eggs
Bunny Day - Sky EggShoot down presents with your slingshot Bunny Day - Stone EggHit rocks with a shovel or axe
Earth Eggs Water Eggs
Bunny Day - Earth EggDug up from the ground Bunny Day - Water EggFish them out of the water

Leaf Eggs

Bunny Day - Leaf Egg
Much like fruit, these will show up in groups of three, and must be shaken to obtain. In April of the Northern Hemisphere, all non-fruit trees will turn into cherry-blossom trees, which is where these eggs can be harvested. However, if you have cut down all of the non-fruit trees in your town, you will need to go back in time a few days and buy a few trees from Nook's Cranny to plant them for the event.

Wood Eggs

Bunny Day - Wood Egg
These eggs sometimes fall from trees when you hit them with an axe, in place of wood. They can fall anytime between the first and third hit, so be sure and hit trees all three times. As for the type of tree, it does not matter whether you chop your axe at fruit trees or non-fruit trees (cherry blossoms), as they can both give you this type of egg.

Wood eggs will also drop from Palm trees at a much higher rate than other trees when you hit them with an axe. A villager will sometimes allude that palm trees are good for collecting eggs, and our research proved this to be true. In one case, our walkthrough team tried hitting 25 palm trees with an axe, and only two of them didn't drop any Wood Eggs (some even dropped two or three). If you are struggling to find wood eggs, look to the palm trees!

How to Get Palm Trees on Your Island

Sky Eggs and Presents

Bunny Day - Sky Egg
These eggs are sometimes found in presents after you shoot them down. Presents containing DIY recipes will also fly through the sky in abundance, so be sure and get them all. These won't break even when falling from the sky, so don't worry about cracking a few eggs!

Stone Eggs

Bunny Day - Stone Egg
Similar to wood eggs, these eggs may come out of rocks when you strike them with a shovel or axe. Since you only have a limited number of rocks in your time, be sure and strike them all eight times.

Earth Eggs

Bunny Day - Earth Egg
These can be dug up from spots where something appears to be buried. Look for a hole in the ground, just like the ones you see for fossils, and dig with your shovel to get this egg.

Water Eggs

Bunny Day - Water Egg
These eggs can be fished up both out of rivers and oceans. Just like trash that can be found in the water, they appear as normal fish, and will bite your rod, but reveal themselves to be eggs when reeled in. Their shadow size is equal to a medium size fish, so you can ignore other sizes of fish which appear if you're hunting for these eggs specifically.

Eggs show up on Mystery Tours!

Other than the Sky Eggs, all Bunny Day Eggs can be obtained while on a Mystery Tour as well. If you are having trouble getting all of the required eggs to make your recipes, buy a Nook Miles Ticket and head to another island.

Trade Eggs with Zipper

BunnyDay3.jpg
If you have reached the 12th of April and still don't have the eggs needed to make all of the recipes, have no fear! Zipper will show up on the 12th and be willing to help you get whatever eggs you need, but there is a catch: it will cost three other eggs to get one of the type you want. While it's not exactly cost-efficient, if you have a ton of one type of egg left over and you are still struggling to get eggs such as Stone Eggs (that have somewhat limited supply), this could be a quick solution.

Trade Eggs and Recipes Here on Game8

If there is a recipe or type of egg you still can't seem to find, don't worry, we've got you covered! Use our Egg and Bunny Day Recipe Trading board to find eggzactly what you're looking for!

How to Find Bunny Day DIY Recipes

Get them from Zipper

Zipper will give you a recipe just for talking to him when you see him. Be absolute sure that you go and talk with him on April 1st and April 12th. If you do manage to find and create all DIY recipes, you will be able to get the recipe for the Wobbling Zipper Toy, which can in turn be crafted to obtain the Bunny Day Wand.

Egg Message Bottle

EggMessageBottle.jpg
In addition to the eggs that can be found, you can find recipes containing Easter themed DIY items along the beach. It's possible to get both an Egg Message Bottle and a normal Message in a Bottle in the same day!

These Message Bottles will appear much more frequently on April 12th, so if you're having some trouble finding all the recipes, these could be your last hope for collecting them all.

Shoot down balloons

In addition to Sky Eggs, you can obtain Bunny Day DIY recipes by shooting down balloons from the sky during the event. These balloons will have a different design than normal balloons, so if you see one, be sure and shoot it down with your slingshot.

Get them from villagers

BunnyDay5.jpg
Bunny Day DIY recipes can also be obtained from villagers. When they see you, they will approach you to give you the recipe, so you don't need to go out of your way to speak to them first.

Discover them when picking up eggs

Sometimes when picking up eggs, your character may think of a recipe on their own. There is one recipe for each type of egg, so be sure and pick up each type and find them. Each of these uses the egg type in its name as well, so for more info, see the list of DIY recipes below.

Note that you don't actually need to craft all of these to get the Wobbling Zipper Toy / Bunny Day Wand. If your main goal is to complete the event, you should craft these last.

Collect all eggshell recipes for Egg Party Outfits!

After gathering all recipes for egg outfits, shells (hats), and shoes, you will automatically obtain another set of recipes for the Egg Party series, which includes the Egg Party Dress and Egg Party Hat. As stated above, you do not need to gather these recipes to get the final reward from Zipper.

Bunny Day Rewards

In addition to the various Bunny Day (Easter) themed furniture and accessories you can get, there are two recipes which can only be obtained by obtaining all of the recipes (not including the outfits and clothing that have Egg in the title), and then crafting them. These are essentially the rewards for “clearing” the event. These can both be obtained on Bunny Day (April 12th).

  • The Wobbling Zipper Toy recipe is obtained by getting all Bunny Day recipes, crafting them, and then speaking to Zipper on April 12th.
  • After crafting the Wobbling Zipper Toy, speak to Zipper again to get the recipe for the Bunny Day Wand recipe.

How Many Eggs Should You Get?

Total Number of Eggs Needed to Make All Recipes

Egg Type Amount Needed
(Excludes Egg Clothing)
Total Amount Needed
Water Egg IconWater Egg 21 33
Stone Egg IconStone Egg 22 34
Sky Egg IconSky Egg 21 33
Wood Egg IconWood Egg 22 34
Leaf Egg IconLeaf Egg 22 34
Earth Egg IconEarth Egg 22 34

This table shows the total number of eggs you'll need in order to craft all Bunny Day items. In short, you will need 34 of each type, except for Water and Sky Eggs, which you only need 33 of. If you only want to get the Bunny Day Wand and don't care about the DIY clothing ideas you get from picking up each egg, that number will decrease by 12 for each egg.

Does anyone have any eggs left they don’t need and would be willing to share or trade?

No mention of the bunny day basket you get for giving him one of each egg?
