Easter Tradition: Resurrection Rolls

Of course I found this idea on Pinterest and I just loved it! Sometimes it is difficult for a child to understand that Jesus rose from the dead. That he was laid in a tomb that was closed by a huge rock and when they went back to find him he was nowhere to be found. This idea actually shows kids that you can enclose an object and then suddenly it can disappear. This is going to be a new Easter tradition for our household. Here is the recipe for Resurrection Rolls:

1 can of crescent rolls
8 large marshmallows
melted butter

Give each child one triangle shaped section of crescent roll. This represents the tomb. Each child takes one marshmallow which represents the body of Christ. Dip the marshmallow in the butter and roll in the cinnamon and sugar mixture. This represents the oils and spices the body was anointed with upon burial. Lay the marshmallow on the dough and carefully wrap it around the marshmallow. Make sure all seams are pinched together well or the marshmallow will ooze out. (It is hard to seal all seams so be very careful!) Bake according to the package directions. Cool. Break open the tomb and the body of Christ is no longer there! Celebrate God's love & Happy Easter!!

Not only do they teach a great lesson, they taste great too!!!

And here is how Delainey was helping Mommy with the rolls...climbing up the walls! haha
