Easter Resurrection Rolls


  • 1 can refrigerated roll or crescent roll dough.

  • 8 large marshmallows

  • melted butter

  • cinnamon sugar

  • Directions:

    • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

  • Give each child one triangle-shaped section of crescent roll. (This represents the tomb)

  • Each child takes one marshmallow. (The marshmallow represents the body of Christ and His purity)

  • Dip the marshmallow in the butter. (This represents the oils of embalming)

  • Roll in the cinnamon and sugar mixture. (This represents the spices Christ’s body was anointed with upon burial)

  • Lay the marshmallow on the dough and carefully wrap it around the marshmallow, bringing the seams over the marshmallow and sealing them. (This represents the wrapping of Jesus’ body after death)

  • Place in oven at 350 degrees and bake for 10-12 minutes. (This represents the tomb; pretend like it is three days and nights)

  • When done, allow them to cool.

  • The children can open their rolls and discover that Jesus is no longer there; the tomb is empty!
