Families with children up to 11 years old can hunt around Chard's shops and look for the hidden bunnies until April 6 as part of the Easter fun.
Each entrant who finds at least 20 bunnies will receive an Easter egg and a gift.

Garry Shortland, vice-chairman of the Chard Town Team, said: "I am amazed at the number of traders in Chard who have agreed to take part and hope this is a partnership which will continue to grow throughout 2013. I see this as an encouraging time for Chard.
"The town team is here to stay and, hopefully, we will be able to make Chard a more thriving economic and cultural centre for residents of the town and the surrounding areas."
The town team was created in 2012 to provide a forum for local people and businesses who want to make Chard a more vibrant place to live in and visit.
In a separate project, traders are registering their interest in the idea of a business fair for the town, which has been suggested on social networking website Facebook.
In an additional project, many traders in the town who are regular visitors to the Chard Notice Board Facebook page are registering interest to create a business fair to improve the town's profile.
