Empty Tomb Biscuits

This is a fun Easter Activity for the kids to help with and enjoy, originally from the "The Good Book Cookbook" You can read the Easter Story from Luke 24:1-11 and 36-49.
1 can of refrigerator biscuits
1 c. butter
2. tsp cinnamon
1/4 c sugar
large marshmallows

Open the can of biscuits and separate. Working on waxed paper, use hands to flatten the biscuits. In a glass bowl, melt the butter in the microwave. In a small bowl, mix cinnamon and sugar. Dip a marshmallow (which represents the body of Christ - white and pure of sin) into the butter and then roll in the cinnamon and sugar (represents the oils and spices the body was anointed with before burial) Place a marshmallow on the dough and carefully wrap the dough around the marshmallow. Make sure seams are pinched together so that the marshmallow will not ooze out. Dip in butter and roll in cinnamon and sugar. Bake according to the package directions. When cool, break open and see what is inside.

This is a great activity that helps show the kids the risen Savior's empty tomb. Plus they are tastey too.
