I hope everyone had a blessed Easter!

Justin and I spent the week doing a devotional that focused on Easter and the reason that we celebrate. It was intended to be done with your children, but we just felt like the kids were a little too small to grasp the concept that way. I came across MixandMatchMama's Resurrection Rolls, and thought it would be the perfect way to explain to McKinlee the true reason we celebrate Easter. She loves to help in the kitchen and she loved this activity and really understood the story that went along with it.


YOU WILL NEED:

1 Package of Crescent rolls (8ct)
1 Package of Marshmallows (large)
2 Tablespoons Butter, melted
3 Tablespoons Sugar
3 Tablespoons Brown sugar


Preheat oven to 350°

Prepare the pan by covering in foil and spraying with non-stick cooking spray
*the foil is key, when marshmallows melt, they turn into a hard sticky goo, who knew?

PREPARING THE STORY:


Roll out the crescents flat This will represent the TOMB.
Melt the butter — This will represent the OILS, in which Christ was anointed. 
Mix the sugar & brown sugar — This will represent the SPICES, placed on Christ before his burial.
The marshmallow — This will represent CHRIST.

Take a marshmallow (Christ) and dip it in the butter (Oils).



Next, dip the marshmallow into the sugar mixture (Spices).



Place each marshmallow onto the crescent roll and roll up until completely covered (representing the tomb).
Place the finished tombs in the oven for about 3 days, or 10-12 minutes.




This is what the "tomb" looked like fresh out of the oven.


The tomb is empty, because He is risen!


Happy Easter!
