Great Easter Idea

I can’t take credit for this idea because I found it on the internet, but I thought I’d at least share it.  It seems like such a cool idea!! 

Equipment and utensils: Baking tray(s), Bowls, Container or pan to melt butter, Oven, Oven mitts
Ingredients: Butter, Cinnamon, Crescent rolls(enough so each child can have one triangle), Marshmallows, large(one per roll), Sugar

Give each child a crescent roll triangle. Tell the children to pretend this is the cloth Jesus would have been buried in.

Give each child a marshmallow. This represents Jesus.

Have the children dip their marshmallow into the melted butter to represent embalming oil and into the cinnamon and sugar to represent spices.

Have the children wrap their marshmallow in the crescent roll so it is completely covered.

Bake the rolls in the oven (tomb) for ten to twelve minutes at 350 degrees.

While the rolls are baking, tell the children the story of Jesus and the empty tomb.

When the rolls are done, let them cool for a minute. Give each child a napkin and a roll.

Open the rolls to reveal that nothing is inside! The marshmallow melted, but the roll remains puffed up.

Let the children enjoy the rolls, then contribute in cleaning up.
