Here's everything you need to know about Bunny Day, including a breakdown of the activities you can participate in.

What is Bunny Day?

Every year when Spring rolls around in Animal Crossing, the island is visited by a yellow rabbit known as Zipper T. Bunny. Despite being called Bunny Day, the event runs for multiple days starting on April 1, 2020 and eventually ending on Easter, April 12, 2020. Included activities involve finding six different types of eggs, earning different Bunny Day-themed DIY recipes, and crafting special Bunny Day items. More and more recipes will appear as it gets closer to actual Bunny Day. To get everything started, you'll need to locate Zipper T. Bunny on your island.

How to find Zipper T. Bunny

This yellow rabbit appears randomly somewhere on your island on April 1, 2020. He has a zipper running down his back implying that he's actually a different villager in a costume, but no one knows who's inside. To find him, you'll need to run around and check every section of your island. Upon locating him, you'll kick off the Bunny Day event. Zipper will explain that there are different eggs and that you can craft special Bunny Day items.

Don't worry. If you missed the first day of Bunny Day, you'll receive a letter from Zipper in the mail with a recipe attached.

Types of Eggs and where to find them

There are six different egg types total, and they're each found in different locations. Here are all six along with where to find them:

Egg Where to find
Sky Egg These will float over your island by a multicolored-striped balloon. If you suddenly hear wind, look around. A blue egg is probably flying by overhead. You should note that non-Bunny Day balloons will also be flying over your island during this time.
Leaf Egg These appear on trees just like regular fruit. Run around your island and shake any trees that have green eggs in them.
Wood Egg You'll harvest these the same way you'd harvest wood. Take an ax to a tree and see if any orange eggs pop out.
Stone Egg Run up to a rock and use a shovel or a hammer to pound away at it. If you're lucky, some yellow eggs will pop out.
Water Egg When you see fish shadows in rivers, ponds, and the ocean go ahead and cast your line. You might just catch a purple egg.
Earth Egg If you come across cracks on the ground in your island, go ahead and dig them up with a shovel. Instead of finding fossils, you might just dig up a pink egg.
