I have one too and it's easy and fun and require only two ingredients so you can do it any time. They are called "resurrection rolls". When you are making dinner one night, have some dough made for rolls, or have some pre-packaged roll dough in the fridge. All you do is take a large marshmallow (and tell the kids that the arshmallows represent Jesus) then wrap a small amount of dough around it to make a marshmallow-filled dinner roll- if you will. Tell the kids the dough represents the tomb where Jesus was laid after his death on the cross. Once they are baked, the rolls will hold their form but the marshmallow (Jesus) will be gone leaving a sweet inside to the roll! During the process, you can read many of the verses you mentioned in the resurrection cookie idea. It's simple, but it's a fun way to spend time with your kids during this time of year and point their attention toward JESUS rather than the bunnies and things the media and grocery stores focus on.
