Easy Empty Tomb Easter Snack for kids

1 Roll of refrigerated crescent rolls
1 large marshmallow to use for each roll

I begin by telling the Easter story found in Luke 23, (for younger children, I summarize until I reach Chapter 24). As I am telling the story I pass out the crescent triangles and 1 marshmallow to each child and myself. I then place the marshmallow on top of the triangle and roll it just as I normally would with the mallow inside. (Little ones may need a help). I Then put them in the oven at 350 degrees until done. Take them out and let them cool! Finish reading with 24:6 and give them each their cooked crescent roll and have them open them up. To their amazement, the "tomb" will be empty! They love it! It is a tradition and every year it is so fun for them!

Hi Heather. I know what you meant when you said you get tired of dying to yourself. Do you have fellowship or a church? I haven't read back far enough back on your can check on our church website for some really encouraging articles about life.....

Having so many children is a blessing, and such a sacrifice too. We need to encourage each other to not grow weary. As I type this, my 9 year old just came out and told me she barfed in her bed...
