*a can of Grand biscuits
- Preheat oven according to the directions on the biscuits.
- Flatten the biscuit out until it's about 5 inches across.
- The marshmallow represents Jesus.Explain that it is white because it stands for His purity and His sinless life.
- Roll the Marshmallow in melted butter sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Explain how they anointed Jesus body with oil, and spices.
- Place the marshmallow in the center of the biscuit, then fold the sides around it forming a "tomb". Pinch the sides of the tomb closed. Explain how Jesus tomb was sealed with a large stone.
- Place it crease side down on a baking sheet so they will not open while cooking.
- Bake the buns. Follow package directions.
- Allow time to cool, the marshmallow will be very hot!
- When the children bite into their buns they will be surprised to find the center empty. The marshmallow has melted. As each child discovers the empty tomb, we repeat : He is not here for He is risen.
- As you eat the biscuits, talk about the sweetness of the biscuits and how sweet a gift Jesus gave us when he died for our sins, and then rose 3 days later proving He is our Savior and the Son of God!
I love this project. It is a great way for my kids to remember what Easter really means, and for us to have a little fun while we do it. Hope you enjoy!!
