5 Egg Hunts to Check Out in Chicagoland

Last year, our Easter plans changed quickly due to COVID-19. While the spring holiday will still look different in 2021, some local businesses plan to bring back egg hunts. We’ve filled a basket full of in-person, virtual and at-home Easter egg hunts for Chicago families. Take a look at our picks below and you can find more family Easter events on our calendar. 

Note: We’re updating our website as quickly as we can, but changes may occur due to COVID-19. Please double check before heading out for the most updated information on safety precautions and any last-minute cancellations. Stay safe! 

Virtual/At-Home Events 

Easter Bunny Express

March 27, 2021

Enjoy Easter at a drive-thru event that will provide each child with 12 eggs filled with different toys and candy. Families can hide these eggs for children to find from the comfort of their own home. Each child will receive a bag to put their found eggs in, along with two Easter-themed crafts to complete at home. After checking in and receiving all their goodies, children will be able to take a picture with the Easter Bunny and receive a small gift from the Bunny.

Hop to It, Kids! Online Easter Egg Hunt

March 27, 2021

  • Hosted by: Watson Adventures
  • Cost: $19

Join Watson Adventures for a virtual Easter Egg Hunt! Chickens—or is it bunnies?— have laid eggs everywhere and it’s up to you to find them! They’re almost hidden in art museum paintings, in royal homes as Fabergé eggs, or in natural history museums as giant dinosaur eggs and tiny hummingbird eggs. The host of the hunt will meet with teams of players ages 10 and older on Zoom and then send each one hopping off around the world, following clues that lead to websites to must find eggs and answer fun questions about them.
