Four little bunnies lived under a green hill. They were called Willy, Tilly, Dilly, and Bud. They worked for their father in his Easter egg shop. Their father let them paint the eggs!

Bud did not like to paint eggs. "Why can't we use plastic ones?" he asked. "They come in all colors. The store has some with swirls on them! You can hide candy inside them."
