Teaching Children the Meaning of Easter with Resurrection Biscuits
One of the best projects that the kids and I did this weekend was make resurrection biscuits together. The kids were able to participate in this hands-on project, helping to understand the religious meaning of the holiday.
Making the biscuits is easy. Even though, the holiday is over, this activity would be good for parents to do this week when reflecting back on the Easter holiday with their children. Sometimes it is easier for children to understand religious lessons after experiencing the holiday.
To make the biscuits is easy! Just purchase the canned biscuits in the grocery store "represents the tomb" and giant marshmallows "representing Jesus." Before doing the project, read the Easter story with your children. Then allow your children to place Jesus in the "tomb" and then put into the oven. After the biscuits are done baking, the marshmallow will melt resembling that Jesus has risen.
Enjoy doing this fun religious activity with your children.
