Resurrection rolls

 Happy Good Friday Friends! 
As I've been pondering the cross today I am constantly in awe of God's goodness and grace to save such sinners like me. 
He is so so good. 
By his wounds we are healed. 
Crazy and awesome.
Thank you Jesus! 

One of our families favorite Easter traditions is making resurrection rolls. 

It's such a fun and hands on way to teach our kids the true meaning of Easter. 
Plus they are yummy. 
Win win. 

We always start by reading about the crucifixion and death/burial of Jesus before we make the rolls.

Then comes the fun part of actually assembling them. 
The kids get to roll the marshmallow (which symbolizes Jesus) in oil (melted butter) and them prepare his body for burial with spices (by rolling marshmallow in cinnamon/sugar). Than they get to wrap Jesus (the marshmallow) in burial linens (the crescent roll). And place them in the oven to bake.

Here’s a breakdown of the symbolism:
  • Large Marshmallows – body of Jesus
  • Melted Butter – oils of embalming
  • Cinnamon  and Sugar Mix- spices used to anoint the body.
  • Crescent Roll – the wrapping of Jesus’ body or the tomb.
  • Oven – the tomb
  • Cavity in bun – the empty tomb or the empty cloths

*For more details details on resurrection rolls look here or here).

As the rolls are baking we read the story of of Jesus' resurrection


and then we get to eat them!! 

The kids always love seeing how the "tomb" is empty after the rolls bake. 
Jesus has risen! 

 so cool! 

And just for fun we dyed eggs too.





pretty and tasty. 
Egg salad sandwich anyone?

Below are some of the other Easter activities we have done in the past t help teach our kids that Easter is about SO much more than just plastic eggs and yummy candy.

Love these ideas. What bible or book are you reading the stories from?

I have never heard of resurrection rolls. Such a great idea! I am going to share this with the moms at church tomorrow and file it away for next year.

Hope you have a wonderful Resurrection Day!
