Empty Tomb Rolls. We used to do this when I was a kid and am going to do it with my kids. I love this story!!! The symbolism of Resurrection or Empty tomb Rolls: Marshmallow - the body of Jesus Melted Butter - the oils for embalming. Cinnamon/Sugar mixture - spices used to anoint the body. Roll- the wrapping of Jesus' body. Oven - the tomb Cavity in roll - the empty tomb after Jesus has risen.
