Another from Dori Van Watermeulen--
1 tube Crescent rolls
1 pkg. large Marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Give each child a triangle of crescent rolls.
The crescent roll represents the cloth that Jesus was wrapped in.
Give each child a marshmallow.
This represents Jesus.
Have him dip the marshmallow in melted butter.
This represents the oils of embalming.
Then dip the buttered marshmallow in the cinnamon and sugar.
This represents the spices used to anoint the body.
Then wrap up the coated marshmallow tightly in the crescent roll
(not like a typical crescent roll up...but bring the sides up and seal
This represents the wrapping of Jesus' body after death.
Place in a 350 degree oven for 10 - 12 minutes.
The oven represents the tomb--pretend like it was three days!
When the rolls have cooled slightly, the children can open their rolls
and discover that Jesus is no longer there, HE IS RISEN!
The marshmallow melts and the crescent roll is puffed up, but empty.
