Resurrection Rolls

1 pkg. canned biscuits
2 Tbsp. melted butter
5 large marshmallows (cut in half)

Give each child 2 biscuits. The biscuits represents
the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in.

Give each child a marshmallow, this represents

Jesus. Have them dip the marshmallow in melted
butter, which represents the oils of embalming.
Then dip the buttered marshmallow in the cinnamon
and sugar mixture which represent the spices used to
anoint the body.

Put the marshmallow in the middle of the two biscuits.

Wrap biscuit around marshmallow completely so the
marshmallow inside can't leak out. This represents
the wrapping of Jesus' body after death.

Place on a greased pan and bake at 350 for 11-13

minutes. The oven represents the tomb.

When the rolls have cooled slightly, the children

can open their rolls (cloth) and discover that
Jesus is no longer there, He is risen. (The
marshmallow and the roll is puffed up, but empty.)
