RESURRECTION ROLLS

  • Crescent rolls
  • melted butter
  • large marshmallows
  • cinnamon
  • sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Give each child (YW) a triangle of crescent rolls.  The crescent roll represents the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in.

Give each child a marshmallow, this represents Jesus.
Have them dip the marshmallow in melted butter, which represents the oils of embalming.  Then dip the buttered marshmallow in the cinnamon and sugar which represent the spices used to annoint the body.

Then wrap the coated marshmallow tightly in the crescent roll (not like a typical crescent roll up, but bring the sides up and seal the marshmallow inside.)  This represents the wrapping of Jesus’ body after death.
Place in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.  The oven represents the tomb.
When the rolls have cooled slightly, the children can open their rolls (cloth) and discover that Jesus is no longer there, He is risen. (The marshmallow and the crescent roll is puffed up, but empty.)
