This is a great family activity that can be used for an object lesson for Easter!

Ingredients: Canned biscuits, large marshmallows, cinnamon sugar, tub of spreadable butter, plastic spoons, waxed paper

Give each person a piece of waxed paper and tape the corners to keep from sliding. Flatten out a biscuit until round.  Wrap each flattened biscuit around a marshmallow, making sure to seal all openings.  Dip the back of the spoon in the tub of butter and spread on the biscuit. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

 Place in a large, greased baking pan.  Bake at 375 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes.

Just like Resurrection morning, the cookies are hollow and EMPTY! On the first Resurrection day Jesus’ followers were amazed to find the tomb open and empty. Read Matthew 28:1-9.

Discuss the main point of the story:

Jesus is NOT in the tomb anymore. HE HAS RISEN. JESUS IS ALIVE!
