Easter Series 3: Resurrection Rolls

Today my friend Julie is guest blogging. She is so creative and always has the best ideas to do with kids. She sent me this recipe and I am so excited about it! Enjoy..Thanks Julie!

Sometimes as a Children’s Minister I find myself just boggled on how to present the Easter story to children… where do you start?
The details of God’s sacrifice, His sovereignty and His majesty is just incredible! My big question is how, do I? Portray this to a child? How do you express what Jesus has done for us in a way that is tangible, understandable and attainable to their little minds…
 I came across this super fun recipe… and it worked!!!!! And it is delicious!

Resurrection Rolls
 • 1 can refrigerated crescent roll dough
 • 8 large marshmallows
 • Melted butter
 • Cinnamon
 • Sugar

 1.  Give each child one triangle shaped section of crescent roll. This represents the tomb.
 2.  Each child takes one marshmallow which represents the body of Christ.
 3.  Dip the marshmallow in the butter and roll in cinnamon and sugar mixture. This represents the oils and
     spices the body was anointed with upon burial.
 4.  Lay the marshmallow on the dough and carefully wrap it around the marshmallow.
 5.  Make sure all seams are pinched together well. (Otherwise the marshmallow will "ooze" out of the seams)
 6.  Bake according to package directions.
 7.  Cool.
 8.  Break open the tomb and the body of Christ is no longer there!!
 9.  Celebrate God's love!

A good friend of mine used this recipe with her pre-schooler last Easter… now marshmallows have become Jesus… “Mommy, can I have some Jesus…”
Isn’t Jesus and what he did for us so sweet? It truly is the sweestest thing, any one could ever do!
