Resurrection Rolls

Before beginning, read John 19 with your kids and discuss how Jesus Died. Explain to your kids that the white marshmallow represents Jesus – perfect, pure, and without sin.

Ingredients

  • 1 can Refrigerated Crescent Rolls
  • Large Marshmallows
  • Melted Butter
  • Cinnamon and Sugar Mixture

Instructions

Before beginning, read John 19 with your kids and discuss how Jesus Died. Explain to your kids that the white marshmallow represents Jesus – perfect, pure, and without sin.

  1. Dip large marshmallows in melted butter which represents the liquids that were used to clean Jesus’ body.
  2. Dip the marshmallow in the cinnamon and sugar mixture which represents the herbs and spices used to anoint Jesus’ body.
  3. Roll out crescent roll and divide into triangles along perforations. Wrap the dough around the marshmallows to represent the strips of linen used to wrap Jesus’ body. Pinch closed all open cracks.
  4. Place into the oven and bake crescent rolls according to the directions on the package. While the rolls are baking, read John 20:1-18. Allow time for rolls to cool when done baking.
  5. Carefully open the roll to reveal it’s empty inside. This resembles when Jesus was resurrected leaving only his wrappings.
