Resurrection Rolls

This Easter, the kids are finally "old enough" to understand things a little more. We've been having so much fun doing different activities to learn about the real meaning of Easter and it's awesome to see their little hearts and minds grasping that Jesus is alive and loves them!

We made these Resurrection Rolls and I think we've found a new Easter tradition!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Dip a large marshmallow in melted butter and then in cinnamon sugar.

Carefully wrap one crescent roll triangle (we used homemade dough instead) around the marshmallow. Pinch the seams together very tightly to seal in the marshmallow as it melts. (Even if it does melt out a little due to kid's craftmanship, it's okay-it still works! :)

Bake on a lightly greased baking sheet for about 15 minutes until golden brown.

We're going to make these Easter Story Cookies tonight. Enjoy!
Natalie and Blake have been singing this song all week:
(sung to Mary Had a Little Lamb)
Jesus is alive today,
Alive today,
Alive today!
Jesus is alive today,
Alive forevermore!

I LOVE this idea - must remember for next year. We did resurrection eggs for the last 12 days...opened one a day. The kids really appreciated it a lot more.

I love your ideas! Tristan was a little young this year, but I am collecting ideas for the future! I will remember this one.

I have an Easter Cookie recipe where you leave the cookies in the oven (tomb) over night and they are ready the next day. I"ll email it to you. Your recipe sounds much tastier, though!
