I’ve always heard about Resurrection Rolls, but this is the first year that we made them at our house. … And, not only do they illustrate a precious message, but they are YUMMY too! A new Easter tradition at our house!
Show your child that each triangle shaped section of crescent roll represents the tomb.
Take one marshmallow and explain how it represents the body of Christ.
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.
Lay the marshmallow on the dough and sprinkle more cinnamon and sugar. Then, carefully wrap it around the marshmallow.
Make sure all seams are pinched together well. (Otherwise the marshmallow will "ooze" out of the seams)
Sprinkle with MORE cinnamon and sugar.
Bake according to package directions.
Break open the tomb and the body of Christ is no longer there!!
Celebrate God's love!
