Here is a recipe for "Resurrection Rolls" that I found here. I think that I will make these on Holy Saturday with the children (and bake them on Easter morning), in addition to dying Easter eggs. We always struggle with finding the balance of activities with our children on Holy Saturday - it is such an in-between day, as it well should be! Good Friday has come and gone, and Saturday is a day of waiting for Jesus' Resurrection. We will be skipping the Easter egg hunts that are going on all around us, and will instead enjoy some activities at home that will help prepare us for Easter. Enjoy!
1 can refrigerated crescent roll dough
8 large marshmallows
Give each child one triangle-shaped crescent roll section. 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 to pinch all seams well so that the marshmallow does not ooze out.
Bake according to package directions.
Break open the tomb and the body of Christ is no longer there! Celebrate God's love!
