Here’s a fun cooking activity for you and the kids with a built in lesson about Easter. It’s one of our family favorites. Hope you enjoy!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Tell this story as you make your rolls:
The white of the marshmallow stands for Jesus being pure and without sin when He was crucified. After He died, his friends took his body down from the cross.
Aside from being super delicious, these little rolls are a great object lesson for sharing the real meaning of Easter with the special little ones in your life!
A few notes before you bake:
* Make sure your little helpers pinch the crescent roll dough tight. Otherwise the marshmallow will ooze all over the cookie sheet, which isn’t quite as cool with the whole metaphor story You can also place them in cupcake liners in a cupcake pan, which will help contain any melted marshmallow.
*Just follow the baking instructions on the crescent roll can for times and temperatures.
*If you’re making this with a group of kids, bake each child’s roll on their own little piece of foil or parchment paper with their name on it so they can get their own to eat.
Happy Easter from our family to yours!
