Malt Easter Egg Cookies

Easter is just weeks away! How do you celebrate? My son and I really don’t do anything special, but this year, we are making Malt Easter Egg Cookies!

Do you have any special Easter memories from your childhood? Do you have any special traditions you have with your own family?

I remember growing up doing fun little easter egg hunts with my brother and cousins. When were much younger, there were a few years that my parents took us to see the Easter bunny! Other than that, it was usually a nice time for our family to get together.

I am not religious, so when we celebrated, it was more about the fun activities of dyeing the eggs, having an Easter egg hunt, candy, and Easter baskets!

Are you looking for some fun Easter crafts? Wendy shared a few fun crafts, such as making your own Easter baskets for the kids.

I also asked our amazing review team what they do for Easter


[My daughter,] Luna gets 2-4 Easter celebrations since we share holidays. She gets one with each of us and then one with each of our families. She ends up with so much candy I have to give it away.


I have a funny story about the year that my husband and one of my BILs hid a small tree frog inside one of the plastic eggs that they always hid outside at my MILs house for the kids’ Easter egg hunt. My 9 yr old nephew found it and the thing leaped out and totally surprised him when he opened it. A mad dash around the living room ensued as all the kids chased the hopping frog around trying to catch it. It was hilarious!

We always start the day going to the morning service at church, and now that I have four little ones we always plan a really fun Easter egg hunt outside. We usually have about 6 kids for our egg hunts including my stepmom’s two little girls who are the same age as my oldest. The day is filled with lots of love and giggles.

Leading up to Easter, we read different books and do some crafts.  On Easter, we usually just do an Easter outfit and a small easter egg hunt.  The kids also receive a basket full of outdoor toys for the summer.

We, however, aren’t religious so none of that plays any precedent in our planning.


I don’t celebrate Easter but I can tell you how I made a kid cry in 1st grade because I told him there was no such thing as the Easter Bunny. When my teacher asked me why and I told her my mom said there wasn’t. She informed me that might be true but other kids didn’t know that so we had to keep it quiet.

As you can see, our team is unique. We all celebrate in different ways and that’s what I value about us!
