Animal Crossing: New Horizons is celebrating the turn of the month with its Bunny Day event. This free update is the first limited time event players of Animal Crossing: New Horizons can experience on Switch.
Running from Apr. 1 to Apr. 12, Animal Crossing: New Horizons players can participate in the festivities by collecting new items and recipes. With so much to do and only so many days to complete your tasks, we’ve compiled a guide so you can hop to it and start crafting those Bunny Day decorations.
Upon logging in, Isabelle announces that Bunny Day is quickly approaching. Once exiting your home, you’ll notice that many trees have become cherry blossoms. Now, pedals blow through the wind, giving your island a pastel-colored makeover. With a lot to see and experience, your first order of business should be to track down Zipper T. Bunny, your shepherd to Bunny Day.
As you locate speak to Zipper T. Bunny on your island, he’ll inform you that he has hidden a number of eggs around the island. He’ll also gift you your first Bunny Day Recipe (mine was the Bunny Day bed) and tells you that if you find all the new recipes before Apr. 12, he’ll reward you with a special present.
From what we’ve been able to gather, there are 16 DIY recipes to find:
- Bunny Day Table
- Bunny Day Glowy Garland
- Bunny Day Bed
- Bunny Day Wreath
- Bunny Day Wall Clock
- Bunny Day Wardrobe
- Bunny Day Bag
- Bunny Day Lamp
- Bunny Day Stool
- Bunny Day Merry Balloons
- Bunny Day Festive Balloons
- Bunny Day Flooring
- Bunny Day Crown
- Bunny Day Fence
- Bunny Day Rug
- Bunny Day Vanity
Many DIY recipes can be found overhead by shooting down and opening the presents attached to balloons. Based on experiences, balloons seem to be spawning in more frequently and cross the island at a faster pace.
Bunny Day recipes can also be found on the beach in message bottles. You’ll also want to keep an eye out on your villagers as they may be keen to pass along a Bunny Day recipe to you if your paths cross.
All of the Bunny Day recipes require you to track down the many different eggs Zipper T. Bunny has hidden. In total, there are six varieties of eggs:
- Stone Eggs
- Water Eggs
- Leaf Eggs
- Earth Eggs
- Wood Eggs
- Sky Eggs
Rather than a traditional egg hunt, you’ll have to locate them by hitting rocks, fishing, shaking trees, and chopping wood. When fishing, you’ll want to keep an eye out for medium-large shadows in the water. This is your best opportunity to find Water Eggs.
Along with DIY recipes, balloons may also carry Sky Eggs. Keep an eye out for egg-themes balloons for those. Digging holes where the star-shaped fossil markers are will land you Earth Eggs. Simply put, you’ll want to continue doing your daily chores around the island. There is no shortage of eggs to be found.
Collecting a certain amount of any type of egg will land you an egg-type specific recipe. All egg types can be used to create eggshells, outfits, and shoes after collecting a certain allotment. If you’re feeling extra fashionable, an Egg Party hat and dress can also be crafted.
Time is ticking, so get out there are start cracking––or rather collecting some eggs. Bunny Day isn’t the only timed event Animal Crossing: New Horizons players should be excited for. Nintendo announced that an Earth Day event would take place later in April.
