Easter Tomb Snacks ~ Easy, Great Way to Teach Kids About the Real Reason For Easter

Each week my family has what we call Family Home Evening.  We take the time to spend some quality time together, and usually we have a spiritual lesson about a scripture story.  All of us take turns preparing the lesson, and since my 5 year old was in charge this time and it was Easter, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to make something a little bit different to go along with our evening.  Not only will it help as he teaches his siblings about Easter, but as he helped me prepare the snacks, he got in a little extra lesson on the subject!

You will need:

Graham crackers

Small donuts

Icing

Green food coloring

Oreos

A knife for spreading icing

Sprinkles

These are super simple and can be put together rather quickly!  It was easy enough that my 5 year old did most of the work with support from me of course.

With your green food coloring, color your icing.  I used the gel colors but I am sure the traditional food coloring would work just as well.  Spread the icing on your cracker, as thin or thick as you would like.  Remember though, first that these are full of sugar by the time you are done, but also that the donut and oreo won’t stand up without enough icing to hold them there. I didn’t do a lot, but enough that you couldn’t see cracker peeking through the icing.

Once your icing is on, add your donut standing up in the center, back of the cracker.  Now add your oreo also standing up, but placed in front and to one side of the donut.

Once I got those made I added sprinkles that came with the icing!  Who doesn’t love sprinkles?  I then made little tags for each treat using a toothpick, small piece of washi tape and a marker.  Just fold your tape around the toothpick and push the sticky sides together. Then write your Easter message on the tag before poking in the top of your donut.

Not only are these a great way to teach about Easter, but they are also a very simple treat for a church class on Easter Sunday!

Hahaha!!! Easter, like all the rest of your Christian holidays, was stolen from us pagans celebrating fertility and new life

I should have said "Easter is not JUST about the Easter Bunny". Thanks for the clarification on the meaning of the Easter Bunny. That's a good one to tell the kids about, too. :)

God commanded us to remember the resurrection upon the first day of the week. Every week has a first day, therefore, He should be remembered weekly, not just one time a year.

I agree with bringing the message of Christ risen to the forefront of Easter, but the bunny is actually a symbol adapted by Christians to spread the message of Easter. Eggs were once a forbidden food during Lent, so that explains the proliferation of eggs on Easter. It would be great if kids learned the origins of these symbols in order to understand religious history better.
