Resurrection Rolls - Using crescent rolls, cinnamon, and marshmallows create memories in the kitchen that will also be a tangible way for them to remember the surprise and excitement of finding the empty tomb!
Chocolate Covered Cross Pretzels - Using pretzel sticks or pretzel rods, make a cross shape. Adhere the 2 pretzels together with melted chocolate. Once the chocolate cools you can enjoy your snack. If you’ve never made chocolate covered pretzels before, The Lazy Genius has a simple how-to guide. Your children really just want uninterrupted time with you, but while you are making this cross shaped treat, it's a great time to talk about the symbol of the cross and that the reason we celebrate Jesus being alive is because he suffered on the cross so we may have eternal life.
Dyed Eggs - If dyeing hard boiled Easter Eggs are part of your tradition, keep it up! You can add a Christ-centered element by writing a message on the eggs such as “Jesus is alive!” or “The tomb is empty!”. You could also write in the egg container a bible verse such as “John 20:1” and then your child has to find and read that verse while they eat their egg.
