Resurrection rolls

I found this recipe last week and tried it out on my family. They all have their seal of approval. In fact, I’ve been asked to teach a lesson on it on Easter Sunday.

The crescent rolls represent the robes Jesus was wrapped in & the tomb he was put into after he died on the cross.

The melted butter represents the oils put on Jesus before he was put in the tomb.

The marshmallow represents Jesus.

The sugar represents the sweetness of God in your life.

The cinnamon represents the bitterness in life. You need both the sweetness and bitterness.

While they bake, the marshmallow melts leaving the inside hollow just like when Jesus rose from the dead. The tomb was empty.

Have a blessed Easter.

Kool Aid colored eggs

I found this “recipe” for egg dye that I thought was a great idea. The Wee One has been pestering me to allow him to dye eggs. He doesn’t eat any though.

It’s easy and smells great.

All you need is Kool aid packets and 2/3rds cup of hot water. That’s it. Make sure you have the surface you are using covered up with paper though. It can stain otherwise. We put paper towel down on a tray so there was less mess. The Wee One can make a big one.

Oh the grape flavor comes out dark so add a little bit of berry blue to it. And the pink lemonade comes out too light so use a little bit of cherry with it.

Use a white crayon to create designs on the egg before dunking it in the dye.
