resurrection rolls

This is not my picture, swiped it from this very pretty blog. (eat at allie's). You have prob heard of this one, but it is a very simple illustration of Jesus & the tomb. If you get past the fact that the marshmallow is supposed to represent Jesus, go for it. My friend Jennifer & I did it with our kids & I love how they did not miss a beat when we explained this part. Okay, Jesus is the marshmallow-got it.

Resurrection Rolls
One can of crescent roll dough
8 large marshmallows (or one for each roll you’ll be making)
Melted butter
Cinnamon sugar
-Roll the marshmallows in the melted butter. This symbolizes the embalming oils.
-Roll the marshmallows in the cinnamon sugar. This is like the spices used to prepare his body for burial.
-Wrap the marshmallow in the crescent roll cloth, pinching the dough together securely.  This represents how they wrapped Jesus’ body. Put the rolls in the oven (symbolizing the tomb) and bake for 12 minutes. 
-Open the tomb and remove the rolls. When they’re cool enough to handle, break one open and discover what happened to the marshmallow. JESUS IS RISEN!
