What is the connection between BUNNIES and EASTER?

Now if you mean what is the connection between bunnies and the celebration of Christ’s death and resurrection. There isn’t one, unless you make up some convoluted explanation about how Christ was reborn and symbolizes life and bunnies give birth a lot, which I think is rather glib as well as being convoluted and confusing. If you mean what is the connection between bunnies and the word Easter, then you have an entirely different story. The word Easter comes from Eastre (there are a variety of possible spellings) a Norse goddess of fertility whose festival was celebrated at the Spring equinox. Hares (or bunnies) were associated with Eastre, probably because of their reproductive abilities. How exactly we in the English language got the name Easter for the celebration of the Resurrection, I have no idea (in many languages it is translated as Passover, as the events of the Resurrection happened over the time of the Jewish Passover).
