We’re having another lazy Spring Break day today.
sweet little love bug
While Hayes napped and Hudson was needing an activity to wind down before his nap, we decided to make Resurrection Rolls.
Hudson’s teacher, Mrs. Julie, gave us this recipe/activity when his class dismissed before Spring Break. I’m so glad she did! It was such a fun little quick activity that we could together. It was very simple and still symbolic of Easter and the resurrection. And the rolls were delicious!
1 (10 oz.) can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
8 large marshmallows (I only had the tiny marshmallows on hand, so we improvised)
1/4 cup melted butter
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons sugar
Let your kids have their own crescent triangle. This represents the tomb.
Then have your child take one marshmallow (or in my case a little cluster of 5-6 marshmallows). This represents the Body of Christ.
The butter, cinnamon and sugar represent the oils and spices that Jesus’ body was anointed with when he was buried.
The marshmallow is laid in the crescent roll representing Jesus’ body being laid in the tomb.
Hudson enjoy just eating the marshmallows during the process!
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Lightly grease a baking sheet
3. Separate crescent rolls into individual triangles
4. In a small bowl, mix together cinnamon and sugar
5. Dip a large marshmallow (or cluster or small marshmallows) into melted butter, then roll in sugar mixture. Place marshmallow into the center of the dough triangle. Carefully wrap the dough around the marshmallow. Pinch the seams together very tightly to seal the marshmallow as it melts. Place on baking sheet. Repeat.
6. Bake until golden brown, about 10-12 minutes.
(Make sure you pinch the seams really well or the marshmallow will ooze out of the sides, which is also just fine!)
When you cut into the crescent roll (tomb) you’ll see that the marshmallow is no longer there!
The tomb is empty! Jesus is risen and He is alive!
