Celebrating Easter at Home
With Easter looking a little different this year, here are a few suggestions for activities to do at home for Easter.
1) Make paper Easter eggs for your window so that people in the neighbourhood can “find” Easter eggs when they are out for a walk!
2) Use masking or painters tape to make a cross on a piece of paper. Paint or color and then carefully remove the tape!
3) Make something yummy to eat! Resurrection rolls!
Pillsbury crescent rolls
6 TB sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
6 large marshmallows
1/4 cup butter, melted
Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside. Divide the dough into individual roll sized portions. Brush rolls with melted butter. Place 1 large marshmallow in the center of each roll. Sprinkle sugar mixture over rolls. Pinch roll dough very firmly around the marshmallow. Roll each into a seamless, or nearly seamless, ball with your hands. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake until rolls are golden brown (about 8 minutes). Be careful not to over bake. When the roll is baked the marshmallow miraculously disappears!
4) Use tissue paper to fill in the shape of a cross (or an Easter egg) to make stained glass for your window.
5) Magic Watercolor Art. Print out the picture. Use a white crayon to write “He is risen” in the empty tomb. When you paint over it with watercolor, the words magically appear!
