Resurrection Rolls

Yesterday afternoon the kiddos and I attempted making Resurrection Rolls for the first time. I had read about them on several different blogs, so I'm not sure who to give the credit to, just know that the idea wasn't mine :) The process was such a great teaching opportunity. C completely understood what I was talking about and what everything represented. AP understood bits and pieces, but loved the hands on part. The end results were pretty yummy, too!


  • 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)

  • Bake according to package directions.
  • Cool.
  • Break open the tomb and the body of Christ is no longer there!!

  • Celebrate God's love!
