OBEY YOUR PARENTS AND ADULTS!

Well, I am late posting because Easter Sunday was so busy! Dying and hunting eggs! Saturday night, I had my 10 year old neice, my 4 yr old, and my cousins 3 yr old lined up in chairs in the kitchen. We were making our first batch of "Resurrection Cookies". They were all so excited because they were getting to make cookies; and all of them told each other how they were going to decorate their cookie! When I got everything laid out and then placed the Bible right in front, they all said "why is the Bible in here? It will get dirty"! I told them these are not ordinary cookies, these cookies tell the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus! We cant eat them until in the morning. Their faces were priceless, LARGE smiles went quickly to LARGE frowns! We got started and were reading the Bible verses given. I came to the part of the color white meaning our sins were washed white as snow.....
I asked them can any of you tell me what a sin is........the little ones spoke up to say very quick "yep, when you dont obey yor (your) paiwents (parents) and otha (other) adoolts (adults)! It was so very cute.
We got to the end and each one had their tape ready to seal the toomb (oven). All done, and here comes Ms. "into everything, busy body" and pulled off our tape! My four old started to cry (she is a drama queen like her mommy)! She said "mommy she opened up ouw (our) toomb"-I fixed (as we like to say in Texas) the problem and we went to bed. We got up the next morning and pulled them out of the oven.....they were not hollow, just crumbly! But we didnt make the mounds large enough! The girls still got the message and had fun! We celebrated Jesus and had a great weekend! HE IS ALIVE!!

What a precious way to teach them about Jesus!

That's a really good way to teach them about Jesus. It's amazing how much information kids can absorb.

How cute! Those are such sweet times. You can't imagine how much I am missing all that innocence. Dont' get me wrong. I love my kids ages now too, but I am missing the sweet innocence they lose by spending more time in this world. How sweet of you to make that lesson for them.

Very creative! My youngest will soon be a teen and I miss the little ones!
But teens are fun too! Most of the time...

I've heard about these cookies, but never made them. What a neat idea and what a sweet, sweet moment you had teaching the kids. I know that is something they will grow up and remember as being a special time in their lives!
