Who doesn't love the Easter Bunny? Each spring, the generous rabbit ventures from his workshop to deliver Easter candy, Easter gifts and decorated eggs to boys and girls around the world. But because that's such an extraordinary feat, many kids wonder how the bunny gets it done, and in what order he makes his rounds.

Enter: Track Easter Bunny, a simple way to follow the Easter Bunny on his journey. No matter what you have planned for Easter Eve, tracking the Easter Bunny is a simple way to extend the magic of this whimsical spring holiday. Plus, it's the easiest way to get kids excited for what's to come on Easter morning (read: an overflowing Easter basket filled with all their favorite treats). Are they skeptical? Let them follow along on Instagram or Twitter, too.

In order to track the Easter Bunny, all you need to do is visit the Track Easter Bunny website. The website sometimes gets overloaded with traffic, in which case you can click over to the tracker's back-up site. The tracker starts at 5 a.m. ET on Easter Eve, or Saturday, April 3, and follows the bunny's hourly movement. It also shows how many deliveries the bunny makes, the last place he visited, his speed and how many carrots he's eaten.

Because the Easter Bunny Tracker gathers so much data, the website also has tons of interesting insights on the Easter Bunny's typical route. According to legend, the Easter Bunny lives on Easter Island, although no one knows exactly where his workshop is located. Historically, his first stop is Christmas Island. American Samoa is often his last stop.

If that's not enough Easter festivities, there are other Eater-themed sites and apps out there, including, which tracks the bunny and also counts down how many "sleeps" until Easter (37 as of this writing); Catch a Character, which lets you use your phone to take a photo of the Easter Bunny at your house and Call Easter Bunny (for iOS/Android), which calls your phone at a set time and uses a pre-recorded phone call to let kids hear the hare.

Is the Easter Bunny definitely coming this year?

Little ones should have no fear that the Easter Bunny will come this year. The Easter Bunny Tracker found that the Easter Bunny will still deliver baskets and eggs. And like all of us, the bunny is taking extra precautions like washing his hands regularly and covering his mouth when he coughs or sneezes. That's all to say, the bunny is doing everything he can to ensure this Easter is just as magical as ever!
