This year for Easter breakfast, I resurrected, (pun intended), the tradition of "Resurrection or Easter Biscuits". I used to make these every year for the kids I taught in Children's Church. I had a couple of helpers working with me.
First, you put a marshmallow into the center of a refrigerator biscuit.
Then you wrap the biscuit around the marshmallow
dip it into melted butter
roll the marshmallow/biscuit in sugar and cinnamon mixture
Bake it and then, while enjoying the taste, discuss why it reminds us of Easter? (it's hollow)
I asked the kids to try to figure out why they were called "Easter or Resurrection" cookies. Neither of them, at first, could correctly tell me that the cookie symbolizes the empty tomb. Their guesses ran the gamut, from, "It's sweet and Jesus is sweet." to "It looks like the rock in front of the tomb." With lots of leading, they finally figured it out.
After church, we had an Easter egg hunt in our front yard.
The yard was in full bloom, and very pretty.
Layne came over to join the fun!
With her bucket, ready to go
Hmm, very curious…a plastic egg in the grass?
A little help from big bro
Pretty good, paper and all!
Daniel is upset that he didn't find any eggs for himself.
After the eggs were all found, Daniel joined them on the trampoline
It was a beautiful day, a perfect day to celebrate the reason for our faith. The day our Lord conquered death!
