Kid's Easter Project: "Empty Tomb"

Here's a great idea to do with the kids to help them understand the reason for Easter. Saving Toward a Better Life did this with her preschool class this week and the Bargains family made them the other day, too!!

Resurrection Rolls or "Empty Tombs"

Here's what you need:
Canned biscuits
Large Marshmallows
Spray margarine

Flatten each biscuit as much as you can. Place marshmallows in the center and bring the edges of the biscuit over the marshmallows and pinch shut at the top. Roll the biscuit around to form a ball (like you would do to make a ball of playdough)

Place the rolls pinched side down (very important!) on a cookie sheet (I spread wax paper over my cookie sheet to make clean up a breeze!) Spray with margarine and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
Bake on 350 for 12-15 minutes.
Let cool.

When you bite into the roll the marshmallow is gone and the "tomb" is empty. Just like Jesus is no longer in the tomb. Hallelujah!
