We do this ever year at Easter to help the kids visualize the Empty Tomb. We place it on our hutch when complete to remind us of the true meaning of Easter
– Jesus’ sacrifice for our sins.
- 4c. flour
- 1 1/2 c. warm water
- 1 c. salt
Mix flour and salt. Add water and mix until dough no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl, then knead the dough on lightly floured surface until smooth. Roll out to about 1/2′ thickness.
Use a small oven-proof bowl (glass is fine) turned upside down on cookie sheet. We spray the outside of the bowl with cooking spray so the tomb won’t stick. Cover the bowl with the dough and make a finished edge at the bottom. Cut out a door “stone” to place up against the finished tomb.
Place the stone face down on cookie sheet. Bake in warm oven (150 degrees) for about 2 hrs.
When cool, carefully remove the tomb from the bowl. We place a piece of construction paper underneath the tomb with the words “He is not here, He has risen as He said.”
Place in a visible location for the Easter season.
