Easter Activity for Children

Teach your children the REAL meaning of Easter. What better way to explain the resurrection?

JESUS IN THE TOMB - SUNDAY: Jesus promised that He would rise from the dead on the third day. He rose on the third day, Easter Sunday.

Supplies: Crescent rolls, marshmallows, cinnamon, margarine

Directions: Take one marshmallow and dip it in melted butter or margarine. Then roll the marshmallow in cinnamon. Have the children place the marshmallow in the center of the triangle of dough. Have them fold the dough around the marshmallow, so that the Marshmallow is "buried" in its tomb. Bake the crescent roll according to the directions on the package. Have the children take the role of the guards at Jesus's tomb. Have them stand guard at the oven. Take the roll out of the tomb (oven) and let it cool. The marshmallow will be gone; just like Jesus's body was gone!
