Remember lining up along the edge of a soccer field covered in Easter eggs, waiting for the moment when your kids could dash out and grab as many plastic orbs as possible in 45 stress-filled seconds? Well, it's that time of year again, and after taking a year or two off, the Easter egg hunts near Chicago are back!

Most Easter egg hunts near Chicago now require little bunnies to register in advance, and some fill up quickly. Also, be aware that not everyone is filling their eggs with candy this year—some are trading eggs in for prizes instead, so plan ahead if you have a little one who's just in it for the sugar.  If the thrill of the hunt is still a little too much for your family, there are also plenty of places where you can take pictures with the Easter bunny and other Easter activities near Chicago, too. For even more events in the week leading up to Easter, check out our list of fun spring break activities.
