    Resurrection Rolls

    Resurrection Rolls are the perfect treat to make with your little ones to share the meaning of Easter.

    One can of crescent roll dough
    8 large marshmallows (or one for each roll you’ll be making)
    Melted butter
    Cinnamon sugar

    Read John 19 while the oven is preheating to 350.

    Unroll the crescent rolls and place on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Explain that this is like the cloth they wrapped Jesus in.

    Give your child a marshmallow and explain that it represents Jesus, all white and pure because He was without sin.

    Roll the marshmallows in the melted butter. This symbolizes the embalming oils.

    Roll the marshmallows in the cinnamon sugar. This is like the spices used to prepare his body for burial.

    Wrap the marshmallow in the crescent roll cloth, pinching the dough together securely. This represents how they wrapped Jesus’ body.

    Put the rolls in the oven (symbolizing the tomb) and bake for 12 minutes.

    While the rolls are baking, read John 20:1-18.

    Open the tomb and remove the rolls. When they’re cool enough to handle, break one open and discover what happened to the marshmallow.

    JESUS IS RISEN!

    Happy Easter!

    Easter Chocolate Crispy Nests

    Today is the last day of preschool before Easter break.
    Caleb’s class is having an Easter party to celebrate.
    We will be bringing these tasty treats to share with his friends.

    1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
    1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
    6 cups of crisp rice cereal
    1 bag of Easter mini eggs

    Put the milk chocolate and the semi-sweet chocolate chips in a pot and cook on low, stirring often.

    Heat until the chocolate is all melted and smooth.

    Place the rice cereal in a large bowl.

    Add the melted chocolate.

    Gently mix in the chocolate with the rice cereal.

    Line a muffin tin with paper liners.

    Spoon the chocolate cereal mixture in, dividing it equally amongst each cup.

    Place a few Easter eggs on the top of each treat, we decided that 3 eggs looked nice in each nest

    Set them aside to cool and set up for an hour or so.

    If you have any chocolate leftover, there is no shame in licking the spoon!

    The perfect Easter treat!

    Aren’t they so cute?

    Enjoy!

    Water Lilies : Watch a paper flower magically bloom using capillary action, the same force that helps real-life flowers open.

    From a sheet of printer paper or card stock, cut a flower with petals that are no longer than a third of the diameter of the flower. Fold the petals toward the center. Place the closed flower on the surface of a shallow dish of water. The paper will soak up the water, causing the petals to unfold.

    Bunny Buns!! Super cute Easter idea! This would work with a homemade bread recipe or even frozen bread dough. Just a little snip during the raising process and you're good to go!

    Did this recently with a group of 5th graders... at the begining of class, we cut out the flowers and then folded each "petal" down while we talked about bullies and how words can hurt and some "jokes" are not funny. Then placed them in the back of the book and left them there for the rest of the period. At the end of the class I took one and placed it into a flat dish with the water ... we talked about how kind words heal ... how love refreshes the spirit... placed the folded flower on the plate and watched it unfold. Then the kids took their own flowers home to share with their family....

    DIY Easter Egg Dye
    By Winnie Hsia, March 2, 2013

    Easter is just a few short weeks away and you can get a jumpstart on this spring holiday of renewal by rethinking your traditional method for coloring Easter eggs. Using nature’s own pretty hues from fruits, vegetables and spices, you can create a beautiful bounty of egg-ceptional eggs – perfect for all your decorating, hiding and snacking needs.

    The Cool Way to Dye Eggs

    Generally speaking, there are two methods used when dyeing eggs: cold dipping and hot boiling. Cold dipping produces subtler, more translucent shades and is usually the preferred method for using multiple colors on the same egg. Hot boiling produces much more intense shades, but these eggs are for decoration only, not eating. We prefer being able to eat our delicious creations after they’ve made their beautiful Easter Sunday debut, so we recommend cold dipping.

    Try our recipe for Naturally Dyed Eggs using turmeric, blueberries and beets! http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/3230

    Ingredients:
    • 2 cups roughly chopped, raw beets (for pink/red), OR
    • 2 cups blueberries, crushed (for blue/purple), OR
    • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric (for yellow/gold)
    • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
    • Hard-boiled eggs

    Method:

    Put your choice of coloring ingredient (beets, blueberries or turmeric) into a small pot with 2 cups water and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh sieve, discarding any solids, and then stir in vinegar. Set aside to let cool until warm or room temperature.

    To color eggs, submerge in dye, turning often for even coating, until desired color is reached. For more colors, dye eggs first in one color, then wipe dry and dye in a second color.

    Want even more variety? We recommend trying out some of these options for creating every color of the rainbow. Be sure your work area is well covered before you start experimenting, as this project will inevitably be a bit messy!

    •Yellow - Lemon or orange peels, carrots, celery seed
    •Orange - Paprika, cumin, chili powder, yellow onion skins
    •Red/Pink - Cranberries, raspberries, radishes
    •Purple - Hibiscus tea
    •Blue/Lavender - Red cabbage, blackberries, purple or red grape juice
    •Green - Spinach leaves
    •Brown/Beige - Coffee, tea, walnuts

    The Incredible Edible Easter Eggs

    If you're anything like us, then you not only love the beauty of Easter eggs, but the deliciousness that lies within! Here are a few tips on how to enjoy these holiday treats safe for consumption:
    •Keep uncooked eggs in the refrigerator until absolutely necessary in the preparation process.
    •Eggs with visible cracks after boiling and/or dyeing may be eaten, but should be kept in the refrigerator and not used in an egg hunt or for decoration.
    •Eggs may have fine cracks you're not able to see, it's always a good idea to hide them in places protected from dirt and other sources of bacteria.
    •Only keep cooked eggs you intend on eating out of the refrigerator for a maximum of two hours. (That includes hiding and hunting! Any longer than that and the eggs are no longer safe to consume.)
    •All eggs should be eaten within one week, so try not to dye any more than you can manage.

    Luckily we have some tasty suggestions for those other eggs you’ve got laying around:

    If eating plain, boiled eggs seems a little boring, check out these ways to spruce them up, from simple spicing to whole dishes!
    •Make it a simple snack with salt, pepper and dill.
    •Slice them over salad for a light meal.
    •Bake them into the middle of your next meatloaf for a tasty surprise!
    •Make a classic favorite with a fresh twist: Watercress and Green Onion Deviled Eggs
    •Bring a unique picnic side to your next gathering: Russian Potato Salad

    We hope these tips and suggestions help make your Easter extra egg-ceptional this year! Got a great suggestion for a natural Easter egg dye or a favorite recipe for your hard-boiled leftovers? We’d love to hear all about it!

    ‎1. Spread cheap white shaving cream in a cookie sheet
    2. Apply drops of neon food coloring across surface
    3. Use toothpicks to swirl colors around
    4. Roll the dried, cooled hardboiled eggs in the colorful cream (we used disposable kitchen gloves to reduce the tattoo effect)
    5. Allow to set for 3-4 minutes on a paper plate
    6. Wipe off shaving cream with paper toweling
    7. Rinse! Voila! Beautiful marbleized eggs, done quickly!

    Silk-dyed eggs

    These eggs are so different and so beautiful. If you have or can find in a thrift store a bunch of silk ties you could use Fox flats method to dye them.

    They pick up the pattern and colors from the ties and turn out so pretty. While you shouldn’t eat these eggs due to toxins in the dye she does say that you can store them afterwards and over time the inside will just dry up.



    http://foxflat.wordpress.com/2010/03/29/silk-dyed-eggs/

    This easter, forgo the candy-colored tablets and vinegar for dyeing eggs with silk neckties. You can always find silk ties at the thriftstore (or maybe this is your chance to free the men in your life from any outdated neckwear). Dyeing eggs with neckties is one of my favorite seasonal projects because it incorporates green-crafting practices and, since you never know which ties will make the prettiest eggs, there’s a delightful mystery to it all.

    My best friend’s aunt showed us this when we were kids. I remember the first time I unwrapped my tie-wrapped egg…MAGIC!!! They’re still so fun to unwrap. Martha Stewart featured this method in her online magazine in 2006, but I’d like to think that we beat Martha to it.

    Anyway, on with the egg-dyeing!
