Easter Fun!

Today we've been busy coloring eggs and making sweet treats! Kayson named one of his eggs (the close up shot) Psychadel-egg! Love it!
We started the day by making Resurrection Rolls, yummy and meaningful! I hope that you're Easter is filled with love, joy and happiness!

Resurrection Rolls

1 can refrigerated crescent roll dough
8 large marshmallows (we used the new caramel/vanilla ones)
Melted butter (1/4 c is plenty)
Cinnamon 1T
Sugar 1T

Give each child one triangle shaped section of crescent roll. This represents the tomb. Each child takes one marshmallow which represents the body of Christ. Dip the marshmallow in the butter and roll in cinnamon and sugar mixture. This represents the oils and spices the body was anointed with upon burial. Lay the marshmallow on the dough and carefully wrap it around the marshmallow. Make sure all seams are pinched together well. (Otherwise the marshmallow will "ooze" out of the seams) Top with butter and remaining cinnamon/sugar mixture. Bake according to package directions. Cool.

Break open the tomb and the body of Christ is no longer there!! Celebrate God's love! We ate these too fast, no pics, sorry!

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.
~ John 11:25-26.
