As a Christian, there is absolutely no holiday I love sharing with my children more than Easter. The hope and immense joy of Christ’s resurrection is a message that I want to be conveyed to them in meaningful, memorable ways. After all, there is nothing more important to share with them than the message of the empty tomb!
Teaching tools that appeal to one of the senses are almost always the most effective. Enter today’s list of ideas: all meaningful, edible ways to share the Easter story with your children!
These meringue cookies are meant to be prepared with the help of little hands, and each added ingredient is accompanied by a bible verse that tells a portion of the Easter story. I love that they are placed in the oven at bedtime to be removed in the morning!
I shared our family recipe for these sweet rolls last year. Made using pre-made frozen rolls, these treats are as delicious as they are meaningful. One yummy bite reveals a hollow, sweet center, symbolizing the empty tomb on Easter morning!
A recipe very similar to my Resurrection Buns above, these rolls are made using refrigerated crescent rolls (no rising required), and they are another marvelous recipe to encourage kiddos to get involved in the kitchen!
Do you have any traditional treats you enjoy for Easter?
