The game has just celebrated its first birthday and 2020 was quite the year for it as it soared in popularity as the year went on in part because of the pandemic and the lockdown, and also because it is a great game that is always adding new things for players to do.

For Easter, we have Bunny Day. If you want to know what cracking things you can get on Bunny Day and what there is to craft, read on for all the eggsciting details!

What to do on Bunny Day in Animal Crossing?

The first thing you are going to want to do is to talk to Zipper. If you missed him when he showed up on March 28th, you can catch him again on April 4th.

  • Bunny Day Arch Recipe: You get this just by talking to Zipper on April 4th.

How to get eggs on Bunny Day in Animal Crossing

eggs-animal-crossing

How to find Earth eggs in Animal Crossing

Earth eggs are buried in the ground on your island and to find them you just need to walk around and keep your eyes on the ground until you spot a ‘Star’ or ‘X’.

Once you have seen one, use your shovel to dig and an egg will be yours.

How to find Stone eggs in Animal Crossing

You can get stone eggs the same way that you collect stone, clay, and iron nuggets – they are inside rocks that are found dotted around your island.

Some rocks will give no eggs but you can get up to 8 from a single one and you can also get them via mystery tours where the drop rate for the eggs appears to be higher.

How to find Leaf eggs in Animal Crossing

Look to the trees! Leaf eggs are found in trees that do not have fruit in them but keep a close eye as they don’t look drastically different from the fruit that is normally in them. The eggs are mostly green so keep that in mind while hunting for them.

Once you have found them, just give the tree a shake and you will be able to pick the eggs up. Around three trees and nine leaf eggs will appear each day. But if you want more, head off on a mystery tour!

How to find Wood eggs in Animal Crossing

Find wood eggs the same way that you gather Wood, Softwood, and Hardwood crafting materials – by hitting trees!

Just equip a Flimsy Axe, Stone Axe, or Axe tool and when you hit the tree you will get anywhere from no eggs at all to three of them. One interesting fact to note is that coconut trees appear to have a higher drop rate so chop one of those when you see one!

How to find Sky eggs in Animal Crossing

Look up! You’ll spot gifts floating around in the sky that you will be able to shoot down with your slingshot. You’ll know if you are looking at one you want as the design of the balloon is egg-themed.

You won’t always get an egg though as sometimes you will get a recipe so take one down whenever you get the chance – just make sure you are playing solo as they will not appear if you are playing the game with others.

How to find Water eggs in Animal Crossing

To find water eggs, you’ll need to go fishing! Look on the beaches and rivers on your island and get fishing and you will eventually catch a water egg.

You can also come across these by going on a mystery tour from your island airport.
