Children (recommended for ages 9 and younger) accompanied by no more than two adults, are invited for a special day of Easter magic at The Children’s Farm. Children will visit the resident animals and the spring babies, collect and color an egg from the chicken coop, make a bunny facemask craft, and visit the Easter Bunny’s Magic Forest where they will hunt for a colored egg and meet The Bunny himself!
Ticketed children will receive jelly beans, a cookie and a campfire roasted marshmallow in addition to their eggs and basket. Each child ticket includes complimentary admission for up to two adults.
All guests should dress for the out of doors and plan to spend at least two hours completing the whole experience. Farm grilled concessions will be available for purchase.
All Ticket Sales are Final.
Frequently Asked Questions Regarding the Easter Egg Round Up
Does everyone in my party need a $28 ticket? No. Only participating children (recommended for ages 9 and under) need to purchase a ticket. Each child ticket includes complimentary admission for up to two adults/chaperones/older siblings. For safety reasons, attendance limits will be strictly enforced so please plan to limit your adults/non ticketed attendees to no more than 2 per child ticket.
How do I purchase tickets? Tickets go on sale at 9AM on Wednesday, February 24th. The easiest way to is purchase your tickets online by using the link below. You can also call our main office at 708-361-3650 or stop by the Lodge to purchase in person.
Is this a typical Egg Hunt? NOT AT ALL! The Easter Egg Round Up is much more than a egg hunt! Guests will get to visit and interact with all of the farm animals, collect and dye an egg from the real chicken coop, make a bunny face mask craft, visit the ‘cookie bunny’, walk up to the Easter Bunny’s Magic Forest, hunt for one special egg, visit with and receive jelly beans from the Easter Bunny, roast a marshmallow over a campfire and enjoy a farm grilled lunch from the concession stand.
How long is the experience? This is a self guided experience but we average about two hours to complete all the activities. You are welcome to linger with the farm animals as long as you’d like but please note that this is a routed event and you can not backtrack. Once you have exited the barn, you will not be allowed to reenter.
What should we wear? This is an out of doors event and you should dress for the weather! We recommend clothing that embraces the farm (animals, dirt, snow, mud) and comfortable shoes or boots that will withstand the hike to the Magic Forest! And don’t forget your face coverings – they will be required for the entire event.
Where do we park and check in? The farm parking lot is located right of Southwest Highway. We will have parking attendants and the Palos Park police helping to control traffic. If the lot hits capacity, overflow parking will be available on Southwest Highway. Ask the police for guidance if you have any questions. Once parked, you will head to the check in table where we will look up your tickets based on the name of the purchaser. You can also have your email confirmation handy for an expedited check in.
Why are there no horse rides this year? Sadly, COVID19 and social distancing requirements have temporarily postponed all of the horse rides at our farm. Once we enter Phase 5 of safety mitigations we will resume horse rides at The Children’s Farm.
What time should I arrive? Please plan to arrive no earlier and no later than 15 minutes before your ticketed time. Due to this year’s strict attendance limits, we might not be able to grant admission for off time arrivals.
