Last night, we took advantage of Daddy being home and we decided to do some fun Easter activities. The first thing we made were “Resurrection” rolls. This was my attempt to try to teach Mikayla about the true meaning of Easter. It is a difficult concept for a four year old. She still had a hard time grasping the idea, but we had fun making these together.
Mikayla was VERY excited to help me cook.
First you take the body of Christ (a marshmallow) and dip His body in oil (butter).
Then you cover his body in spices (cinnamon sugar)
After His body has been prepared for burial, you wrap His body in a cloth (a crescent roll triangle). Now that His body is ready, you place it in the tomb (the oven) and wait (at 350* for about 10 minutes) When you pull the rolls out of the oven and let them cool, you open the rolls up. The marshmallow has disappeared, symbolizing the Resurrection. It was a fun little activity (and yummy!) to do with Mikayla.
While the rolls were baking and cooling, we dyed some Easter Eggs.
We got pretty creative with our color combinations.
When Mikayla picked out the egg dyeing kit. She picked out this cute princess one. I figure this will be the last year we can really do a gender specific kit – I am sure Gavin will have more of an opinion next year.
