Resurrection Rolls

Saturday, April 7, 2012

He’s starting to ‘get it’.  Or at least he talks about it.  We’ve been talking a lot about Jesus dying on the cross for our sins and then rising on Easter Morning-and we say Alleluia!  While he’s figuring out the Easter story, as much as a three-year-old can, I thought it’d be fun to make Resurrection Rolls.image I know, gross, feet on the counter.  But he was in to it, so whatever.  imageI explained what everything represented (as he took bite after bite of cinnamon-sugar coated marshmallow) and that when we open the tomb the marshmallow will not be there-just like Jesus was not there.  He is Risen!imageHe wasn’t too pleased with that.  “Mommy, I don’t want the marshmallow to disdapear!”imageOk, so we’ll keep trying to ‘get it’.  It was a fun way to talk about Easter with our boy and help him start to understand the great Gift!image
