I once made a pan of brownies that I thought marshmallows would be yummy in. So I mixed them in the batter and threw them in the oven. When the brownies were done they were full of holes where marshmallows once were. That is when I discovered that if you bake them they will...disappear! I have read this idea somewhere else, so it is not original to me but I love using this idea of disappearing marshmallows to demonstrate to a child that the Tomb was empty on Easter morning! We will be making Resurrection Rolls this Easter:
Ingredients: One can of crescent roll dough 8 large marshmallows (or one for each roll you’ll be making) Melted butter Cinnamon sugar Bible or Easter storybook
Assemble rolls and read the story: 1. Read John 19, spend the week before reading John 12-18 with your kids. 2. Unroll the crescent rolls. Explain that this is like the cloth they wrapped Jesus in. 3. Give your child a marshmallow and explain that it represents Jesus's body… all white and pure because He was without sin. 4. Roll the marshmallows in the melted butter. This symbolizes the embalming oils. 5. Roll the marshmallows in the cinnamon sugar. This is like the spices used to prepare his body for burial. 6. Wrap the marshmallow in the crescent roll cloth, pinching the dough together securely. Don’t worry about the shape so much, they’ll taste the same no matter how you roll or bundle them. This represents how they would have wrapped Jesus’ body in burial clothes. I like to brush them with more melted butter, but it’s not necessary. 7. Put the rolls in the oven (symbolizing the tomb) and bake for the amount of time specified on the crescent roll package. 8. While the rolls are baking, read John 20:1-18. 9. Open the tomb (oven) and remove the rolls. When they’re cool enough to handle, break one open and discover what happened to the marshmallow. Jesus is risen!
