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.

Virtual/At-Home Events 

Hop to It, Kids! Online Easter Egg Hunt

 March 27, 29, 31; April 2, 3, 4, 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.
