This year the night before Resurrection Sunday or Easter we made resurrection cookies. Each ingredient is a symbol of part of the Easter story. Mark made the cookies adding each ingredient as he explained what it meant and read scripture. It was a neat way to retell the story of Christ’s death and resurrection. It also reminded us about how as Christ followers we’ve been washed clean!
The tape signifies that the tomb was sealed and in the morning the kids saw that the tape had been cut reminding them that the tomb had been opened! Inside each cookie was a hallow spot reminding us that the tomb was empty because He has risen.
