Resurrection Rolls

This morning the boys and I made Resurrection Rolls for the first time. They were super easy and the lesson was right on their level.

The ingredients: Crescent Rolls, cinnamon and sugar, melted butter, and marshmallows
I showed them an example and then I really let them do everything. You dip the marshmallow, which represents Jesus' body into butter
and then cinnamon and sugar, which represent the oils and spices that his body was anointed with.
Then you wrap his body in a crescent roll, which represents the tomb.
Then you seal the tomb by closing up any openings. We could have done a better job of this and ended up with several that oozed their marshmallow instead of it just disappearing, but it didn't really matter.This is the finished product. After you bake them the marshmallow (Jesus Body) disappears, leaving an empty tomb.
When I put them in the oven I told the boys we'd have to wait and see what happened. Stacey said, "Is he gonna rose again?" perhaps the grammar is a little off but the message was spot on!
He has risen, He has risen indeed!
