Resurrection Rolls

Crescent rolls
Melted butter
Large Marshmallows
Cinnamon Sugar

Preheat Oven to 350*.

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

Give each child a marshmallow. 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.) This represents the wrapping of Jesus' body after death.
Bake rolls for 10-12 minutes. (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.)


  1. Dar, I'm excited to try these. They look yummier than the resurrection cookies that are flavorless. :)
