A Good Object Lesson: Resurrection Buns

Our 5th and 6th grade Sunday School classes liked making resurrection buns last Sunday. They were easy, fun to make and tasted yummy! After washing their hands, each got one or two chunks of the frozen ready-made dough (Pillsbury brand Grands Biscuits) and made resurrection buns.

Here are the instructions:
Flatten dough out to 5" diameter circle.

Brush some melted butter on it, sprinkle on some cinnamon, (the butter & cinnamon represented the spices for Jesus' burial)

Wrap a marshmallow up in it and pinch close completely.

Brush or poor on some melted butter for the outside and sprinkle some cinnamon on the outside;

Place on cookie sheet face down to help prevent them from opening.

Bake for 13 minutes.

When done, the marshmallow disappeared just like Jesus' body disappeared from the tomb when he rose from the dead! The boys were surprised the marshmallow was gone!

Well, that's a pretty cool object lesson, if you ask me! I was amazed to discover that it is possible---though highly impractical, to make marshmallows at home! Can you imagine bothering with that???

Oh my goodness, that is so neat! Great object lesson. So... did the angel tell them that the marshmallow is risen, to meet it in Galilee? lol

I hadn't heard of those before. What a great lesson!
