There are two times a year that I just love, love, love! Christmas cause we observe the birth of my Savior Jesus and Easter because my Savior loved us so much that he gave his life that we may live. I am humbled by that love. Being a mom with only one child I can not imagine giving the life of my only child for anyone. There is no other love that compares to the one that God has for us. I really want Mini to understand that Easter is more than Easter Bunny and Easter Eggs, so we set out to make Resurrection Rolls and tell the story God’s love!
How to Make Resurrection Rolls
Ingredients for Resurrection Rolls
1-2 cans of Crescent Rolls – these represent the burial cloth that Jesus was wrapped in
1 Bag of Large Marshmallows- these represent Jesus, all white and pure because he is without sin
Melted Butter- this represents the embalming oil
Sugar-(You can use Cinnamon too) this represents the spices that were used for burial
Preparing Jesus for Burial: Roll the Marshmallow in the butter and then in the sugar
Next wrap Jesus in the burial cloth. Make sure you pinch all the seams or you will end up with a Marshmallow mess.
The oven is used to represent the tomb that Jesus was placed in. Cook the crescent rolls according to the directions on the package. While the rolls baked we read John 20:1-18.
He has risen: After the rolls are cooked let them cool and then cut them open. Mini was shocked to see that Jesus was no longer in there. Taking the time to do this helped Mini SEE not just hear that Jesus rose. What a great way to not only tell, but show your kids the true meaning of Easter.
