Resurrection Bread and Eggs

Since I'm a last minute Sally kind of mom this year, we dyed our Easter Eggs and made resurrection bread all in one afternoon. I won an egg dyeing kit from Eco-Kids on Mommy and Me Giveaways blog. The dye is made from all natural ingredients which makes you feel a little better when your kids try to drink the dye. Mark and Molly were not huge fans of the process, but Isabella had a great time!

Isabella insisted on leaving one egg white.

After we were done dyeing Easter Eggs Isabella and I made resurrection bread. This bread has a marshmallow in it that you wrap in a crescent roll and them dip in cinnamon/sugar. When you bake the bread, the marshmallow is absorbed into the roll making an empty tomb.

As we were making the rolls, I'm retelling the story of Easter to Isabella. After they cooked, we broke open the rolls and the look on her face was priceless! She couldn't figure out where the marshmallow went. She then looked into the roll and called for Jesus. "Jesus where are you?" Too stinkin' cute!

Isabella rolling the "body" in the spicy. I love that she didn't say spices.

The bread is ready to go into the "cave."

The bread is delicious by the way! I didn't get a picture of the finished product because we ate it in like 2 minutes. I had three kids covered in sugar and there were smiles all around. And now I have Easter baskets to fill, a water table to set up. and eggs to hide. See I really am a last minute Sally this year! I can't wait to see their faces in the morning!

  3. I am so jealous to see your kids sitting outside topless! It snowed here last night!

    Egg dying looks like a lot of fun! I will have to buy a kit for the peapod so we can do eggs next weekend. I love hardboiled eggs and really want to do this with her!

    That bread looks GREAT! Will you share the recipe?

  7. Happy Easter, Allison!

    You're so smart to dye eggs outside. I don't even think that would have occurred to me. I didn't even bother trying to dye eggs with Cakes this year because I didn't think she'd have enough patience so we went the plastic route.

    I LOVE the resurrection bread idea and think we'll do that next year! And calling for Jesus is so precious and innocent - so sweet!

  8. My oldest and I also got to enjoy the egg coloring together.. I'm thinking the youngest will enjoy it next year!
    Cute pictures!

  9. I have all of the stuff to color eggs, suppose I should do it tomorrow just for fun??? And you are a genius for doing them outside!!
