This Thursday why not do a craft with your kids that will remind them of the Last Supper. I just found this wonderful website called Catholic Icing that has an easy to follow Last Supper craft project.
It is a take off of the Last Supper painting by Leonardo da Vinci. Just a little bit of paper, a few downloads and an egg carton and you have a great rendition.
It includes the names of each of the disciples at the meal, which would help kids put faces to the story. Why not read to them either Mathew’s version in Matthew 26:17-30 or Mark’s version in Mark 14:12-26 or Luke’s version in Luke 22: 7-23 while they color this project.
Most of the project is coloring and cutting so kids will have plenty of time to listen. You might want to read to them all three versions of the story and then talk about the differences.
I love how this allows the characters to sit up straight. Many paper project just don’t have enough strength to last very long.
Thank to Lacy of the Catholic Icing website for creating this fun Last Supper craft project to remind kids about the Last Supper. Hope that you check this great Christian resource.
If you like what you read, check out our children’s book, Hooked on the Book, on this website. It provides the Big Story behind all 66 books in the Bible including colorful illustrations, rhymes and a surprise on every page.
