Resurrection Rolls

Making Resurrection Rolls with your children on Easter is a fun and interactive way to share the story of Christ’s burial and resurrection. After helping you wrap crescent rolls around marshmallows, your children will love discussing why the rolls are hollow inside after they bake!
