Easter Guide for Chicago Families

After dealing with canceled egg hunts and Easter Bunny photo sessions in 2020, it’s hard to even think of any holiday plans during a pandemic. Luckily, this year, we’ve learned to adapt with social distancing practices and creative ways to make the most of Easter on April 4.

Even if you’re planning to only celebrate at home, we’ve rounded up the best Easter-themed activities for Chicago families. Enjoy the spring holiday with these treats, basket ideas, books, crafts and more. Have a happy Easter!
