Easter Egg Hunt

Today we went on an Easter Egg hunt at our friend Christy's house. There were 8 kids in all including Bailey, and they had fun hunting and gathering eggs in their cute baskets. We all had lunch together and the older kids made resurrection rolls where you put a marshmallow inside a crescent roll and then bake it. The marshmallow melts and "disappears" and you can use this as a tool to teach your child how Jesus' body (the marshmallow) was gone when they opened the tomb (crescent roll). Before baking, you roll the marshmallow in melted butter and then cinnamon and sugar to represent the oils and spices they put on Jesus' body after he died. Not really sure how much the girls understood, but you've got to start somewhere, right? :)

How fun! I love the idea of the Resurrection rolls. We're planning on doing Resurrection meringue cookies this year that are a similar teaching tool for Easter. Bailey's getting so big!
