Easter Morning Breakfast

In the past I've made resurrection cookies for Easter morning, but this year I'm going to make an idea I got from my friend Michelle's Blog. It looks much tastier!

1 can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
8 large marshmallows
Melted butter
Cinnamon and Sugar mixed together

  1. Give each child one  rectangle section of dough. This will represent the cloth wrapped around Jesus' body.
  2. Give each child one large marshmallow. This represents Christ's body.
  3. Let each child roll their marshmallow in the melted butter.  Then, dip the marshmallow into the cinnamon sugar mixture.  This represents the oils and spices that prepared Christ's body for burial.
  4. Have each child place the marshmallow on their section of dough and carefully wrap it.
    Make sure all edges are pinched tight!
  5. Place the rolls in the oven. Tape the door shut and place a guard - stuffed animal or child. The oven represents the tomb.
  6. Bake the rolls, following the directions on the package.
  7. Open the tomb/oven.  Only the cloths remain! Christ's body is no longer there! 
Read accompanying passages from Scripture, 
such as John 19: 38-42 and John 20.

Here's a picture from Michelle's Blog:
