Resurrection Rolls

These are just precious!!  I've seen them on a NUMBER of pages... but this recipe was super descriptive, so I thought that I would share it with all of you!!  If your kids are old enough to understand this concept, I would STRONGLY recommend this 'fun with kids' activity.  I know that I will DEFINITELY do this with my kiddos when they're old enough!!

What you'll need:

  • Refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • LARGE marshmallows (each 'resurrection roll' will need a marshmallow)
  • Butter (melted)
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar

What to do:
  1. Preheat the oven to the temperature on the crescent roll package.  While the oven is preheating, read John 19 (John 12-18 has good background info... so, IF you have time... you could read that earlier in the week. 
  2. Unroll and divide the crescent rolls.  Explain to the children that the dough represents the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in.
  3. Take out the marshmallows and hand one to each child.  Explain to them that the marshmallow represents Jesus... all white and pure because He was without sin.
  4. Have your child roll the marshmallow in melted butter.  This represents the oils.
  5. Have your child roll the marshmallow in the cinnamon sugar.  This represents the spices that were used to prepare His body for burial.
  6. Have your child place the marshmallow in the center of a crescent roll and wrap the marshmallow with the roll (be sure to have them pinch the dough together securely).
  7. Put the rolls in the oven and explain to your child that the oven represents the tomb where they buried Jesus (while they're baking, read John 20: 1-8)
  8. When the time is up, open the 'tomb' and remove the rolls.  When they're cool enough, break one open and discover what happened to the marshmallow.  Jesus has risen and is coming again (read Thes 4:16-18)!!!
