Fun Things to Do With The Family in Illinois This Easter
Now that we're about a hop, skip, and a jump away from Easter, I'm sure your family has a lot of egg dying, hunting, and eating in your future, but if you're looking for some more fun Easter things to add to your to-do list, here are some cool events and activities to check out.
Easter Egg Hunts in Northern Illinois
Each family has its own Easter traditions, and for my family, those traditions include hitting up as many Easter Egg Hunts as we can in the Stateline area. (Kids can never have too much candy, right? )
If your kids are into the thrill of finding eggs more than the actual eating of the candy, here are some of my kids' favorite Easter Egg Hunts to go on...
- Easter Egg-streme at the Northeast YMCA on Orth Road in Loves Park - Friday, April 8, 2022, from 6 to 8 p.m. Egg hunt times for kids ages 0-5 starts at 6:30 p.m. with ages 6-12 years old following at 7 p.m. This event is free and open to the public and also features pictures with the Easter Bunny, inflatables, Easter crafts, and activities. Pre-registration is required, here.
- Easter Egg Hunt at Camp Winnebago on N Main Street in Rockford - Sunday, April 9, 2022, from Noon to 3 p.m. Easter-related games and activities start at Noon, an all-ages egg hunt starts at 1 p.m., and little kids egg hunt (6 and under) starts at 2 p.m. Free to attend.
- Easter Candy Scramble at Village Hall in Cherry Valley - Saturday, April 16, 2022, at 2 p.m. Easter Bunny arrives at 1:30 p.m. for pictures. Free to attend and open to the public. If the weather is bad, the event will take place inside of Village Hall.
- Easter Egg Hunt at Pecatonica High School - Saturday, April 16, 2022, starting at 1 p.m. Free to all kids 10 and under, and be sure to stick around after the hunt for more fun Easter festivities taking place in downtown Pecatonica.
Those four Easter egg hunts may be my girls' favorites, but there are a TON of them happening in the Stateline area over the next two weekends. Check out the list at statelinekids.com for more great egg hunt options, and places to see the Easter Bunny!
