    I don't think I've posted these before but it a great way for the children to learn the meaning of Easter and A great way to make memories .Connie

    To be made the evening before Easter.

    You need:
    1 c. whole pecans
    1 tsp. vinegar
    3 egg whites
    Pinch salt
    1 c. sugar
    Zipper baggy
    Wooden spoon

    Preheat oven to 300 degrees F Place pecans in zipper baggy and let children beat
    them with the wooden spoon to break into small pieces. Explain that after Jesus
    was arrested the Roman soldiers beat him. Read
    John 19:1-3.

    Let each child smell the vinegar. Put 1-tsp. vinegar into mixing bowl. Explain
    that when Jesus was thirsty on the cross he was given vinegar to drink. Read
    John 19:28-30

    Add egg whites to vinegar. Eggs represent life. Explain that Jesus gave His life
    to give us life. Read John 10:10-11.

    Sprinkle a little salt into each child's hand. Let them taste it and brush the
    rest into the bowl. Explain that this represents the salty tears shed by Jesus'
    followers, and the bitterness of our own sin. Read Luke 23:27.

    So far the ingredients are not very appetizing. Add 1-c. sugar. Explain that the
    sweetest part of the story is that Jesus died because He loves us. He wants us
    to know and belong to Him. Read Ps. 34:8 and John 3:16.

    Beat with a mixer on high speed for 12 to 15 minutes until stiff peaks are
    formed. Explain that the color white represents the purity in God's eyes of
    those whose sins have been cleansed by Jesus. Read ISA.1: 18 and John 3:1-3.

    Fold in broken nuts. Drop by teaspoons onto wax paper covered cookie sheet.
    Explain that each mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus' body was laid.
    Read Matt. 27:57-60.

    Put the cookie sheet in the oven, close the door and turn the oven OFF. Give
    each child a piece of tape and seal the oven door. Explain that Jesus' tomb was
    sealed. Read Matt. 27:65-66.

    GO TO BED! Explain that they may feel sad to leave the cookies in the oven
    overnight. Jesus' followers were in despair when the tomb was sealed. Read John
    16:20 and 22.

    On Easter morning, open the oven and give everyone a cookie. Notice the cracked
    surface and take a bite. The cookies are hollow! On the first Easter Jesus'
    followers were amazed to find the tomb open and empty. Read Matt. 28:1-9.
