Resurrection Rolls: With an Easter Story

To continue learning about Easter I decided to try making Resurrection Rolls. These rolls are a fabulous Easter lesson and involves eating a delicious treat. The best part is when the kids bite into the roll and find that Jesus, the marshmallow, isn't there! This is our first time making these but I can't wait to make it a tradition!

We had some fun with this activity and incorporated some dramatic play. We labeled the oven as the tomb that we would put Jesus into.

"Batman" had a great time helping make each roll. I included the story that we talked about as we were making each roll at the bottom of this post.

Now things got really great. " Batman" was guarding the tomb while the rolls were cooking. He even tried to make me attempt to break into the tomb in which he promptly used his sword to avert me.

My little soldier guarding the tomb
We go big or go home around here. For Palm Sunday we were galloping down the hallway with palms shouting Hosanna! So a soldier at the tomb is totally normal, have fun with it!


* 1 can of crescent rolls
* One marshmallow for each roll
* 2 TBS melted butter
* 2 TBS sugar
* 1 tsp. cinnamon


1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
2. Unroll your crescent rolls and lay each roll out on a cookie sheet.
3. Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl, this will be used for dipping.
4. Roll the marshmallow in butter and then in the cinnamon, sugar mixture.
5. Place the coated marshmallow in the middle of the crescent roll and roll the marshmallow up in the crescent roll making sure to pinch any seams so the marshmallow doesn't leak out.
6. Roll the marshmallow wrapped in crescent in the cinnamon, sugar mixture to coat the outside of the roll and place on the cookie sheet.
7. Repeat for each crescent roll.
8. Bake for 13-15 minutes.
9. Bite into your roll and see that Jesus has risen!
