Ressurection Rolls

Last year I tried to make resurrection rolls a couple days before Easter with my boys.  My efforts were received with a ho-hum attitude.  This year, we made resurrection rolls for breakfast Easter morning.  It was a huge hit. I ended up not saying the verses, just telling the story because my boys were so bouncy and excited about Easter, but it was still effective and the boys loved it. 

Here is what we did:

1.  We spread out the dough of the croissant rolls, representing the tomb.  In it we put Jesus body that was wrapped in linen (the marshmallow) and covered with spices (the cinnamon and sugar)

John 19: "Taking Jesus’ body, the two of them wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen. This was in accordance with Jewish burial customs.  At the place where Jesus was crucified, there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had ever been laid.  Because it was the Jewish day of Preparation and since the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there."

2.  We closed the tomb by wrapping up the marshmallow in the croissant roll dough.

John 19:41-42.  "At the place where Jesus was crucified, there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had ever been laid.  Because it was the Jewish day of Preparation and since the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there."

3.  After it was cooked, we opened up our tomb to see that Jesus has risen!

I Corinthians 15:4 "...that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures."
