This is one of our favorite yearly rituals. I used the directions as found here.
- 1 tube refrigerated crescent rolls (8)
- 3 T. melted butter
- 8 large marshmallows
- 1/8 c. cinnamon/sugar mixture
- 1 baking pan covered in foil
Read Matthew 27:57-61 about how Jesus’ body was prepared for burial.
Dip a marshmallow (Jesus’ body) in the melted butter (oils)
and roll it in cinnamon/sugar (spices).
Lay it on the crescent roll (linen) and pull up the sides til the marshmallow is hidden inside.
Cover the top with the remainder of the melted butter and cinnamon/sugar (seal the tomb).
Cook for 8-10 mins. on 350 and let cool.
The children will immediately notice “Jesus” is missing (marshmallow has melted).
Finish up by reading Matthew 28:5-8.
