Easter is upon us! What better way to get the children to understand than by telling the story of our Risen King through a marshmallow! A marshmallow? All the classes make this yummy treat. You get a marshmallow to represent Jesus’ body (it is white and pure). The children prepare Jesus for his burial by anointing his body with oils and spices (butter, cinnamon and sugar.) They took the cloth (crescent roll) and wrapped Jesus’ body to lay him in the tomb (oven). After 3 days in the tomb (really only 20 minutes), the children notice that Jesus’ body is no longer there (the marshmallow melts leaving a hole in the cloth)!!
The children got to enjoy these special holiday treats along with fresh fruit and veggies during snack!
