Easter Resurrection Rolls!

by Kimberly on April 22, 2011

Here is a great snack to make to help tell your kids the Resurrection story of Jesus!

Thank you to my friend Kelly and Quit Eating Out for sharing this!!


  • Crescent rolls
  • Melted butter
  • Large Marshmallows
  • CinnamonSugar Mix (you can buy pre mixed or mix yourself)

Preheat Oven to 350*.

Give each child a triangle of crescent rolls telling them that The crescent roll represents the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in. Read Matthew 27: 57-61

Give each child a marshmallow telling them that This represents Jesus.

Have him/her dip the marshmallow in melted butter. This represents the oils of embalming.

Now dip the buttered marshmallow in the cinnamon and sugar which represents the spices used to anoint the body.

Then wrap up the coated marshmallow tightly in the crescent roll (not like a typical crescent roll up, but bring the sides up and seal the marshmallow inside.) Tell the children that this represents the wrapping of Jesus’ body after death.

Bake rolls for 10-12 minutes. Tell the children that the oven represents the tomb (pretend like it was three days!)

Let the rolls cool slightly. The children can open their rolls (cloth) and discover that Jesus is no longer there, HE IS RISEN!!!! (The marshmallow melts and the crescent roll is puffed up, but empty.)

And this my friends is why I celebrate Easter!!!
