An Easter Lesson

Holden came home from school with an Easter card for me.  The card was about Jesus resurrection.

Holden went on and on about what he had learned then Rylan started talking about what all he had learned too.  With all this talk about Jesus resurrection, I  decided what better day to make resurrection rolls.  These rolls are rather easy to make but a perfect way to demonstrate the resurrection.  First you take a crescent rolls and separate the individual triangles of dough. Explain that the dough is like the cloth used to wrap Jesus.
Take one marshmallow and explain that it represents Jesus, all white and pure because He was without sin.
Roll each marshmallow in the melted butter and then roll in the cinnamon sugar.

This symbolize the embalming oils and spices used to prepare Jesus’ body for burial.
Put a buttered and sugared marshmallow in the center of each triangle section and pinch the dough edges together securely. This symbolizes the wrapping of Jesus’ body.

Pull the corners of the dough toward the center to cover the marshmallow.
Place the rolls on a parchment lined baking sheet and put in the oven (symbolizing the tomb).

Once cooled, we cut open one of the rolls and discovered it was empty!

After the boys were amazed by what they saw, they enjoyed this Easter lesson as a snack.
