Use the last supper Bible crafts to reinforce the story about Jesus' last meal with his disciples. Kids can use paper to represent the bread and wine that was blessed. There is even a craft for washing the disciples' feet.
On the first day of the feast of unleavened bread, the disciples asked Jesus where he wanted to eat the Passover meal. Jesus told two of his disciples how to find a room that was prepared for them. In the Gospel of Luke, we are told that Peter and John were the two disciples that were sent. You can find the account in Matthew 26:17-19, Mark 14:12-16, and Luke 27:7-13.
The twelve were with Jesus in the room and sat down for the meal. While they were eating, Jesus took the bread and wine and blessed them. The blessing is in Mathew, Mark, and Luke. The Gospel of John is the only one that tells about the washing of the disciples' feet.
The last supper is also mentioned in 1 Corinthians 11:23-29.
And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. (Luke 22:19 KJV)
Cut a 5 by 5 1/2 inch rectangle from brown or orange construction paper.
Also, cut a 4 1/2 by 5-inch rectangle from white paper for the inside of the bread.
Fold the rectangle in half and draw a line 1/2 inch from the cut edge and 2 1/2 inches long. Then, draw a curved line to the edge. Next, round the corners and draw the line so that it goes slightly up before the folded edge. This will be the crust.
Do the same for the white piece of paper.
Cut on the lines.
Trim if necessary.
Glue the white paper to the brown paper.
“Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.”” (Luke 22:20 KJV) (in the King James Version new testament is not capitalized in this verse)
Cut two 6 by 9-inch rectangles from white paper. Fold one in half, so it is 3 inches wide.
Draw a curved line from the cut edge. Now, draw a line 1/2 inch wide by 4 inches long for the stem of the wine glass. From the stem, draw a curved line 2 inches for the bottom of the glass.
Cut out the center of the glass, leaving a 1/2 inch border. Do the same with the other white rectangle.
Cut a 6 by 4-inch rectangle from purple paper.
Glue the purple paper on one side of the glass.
Turn over and glue the other glass on the other side.
Trim so that the purple is not showing.
“After the meal, Jesus pour water in a basin and washed his disciples' feet.” John 13: 5-12 (KJV)
Download and print the PDF and cut out the feet.
Decorate the rim of the plate if you want to.
Glue the feet to the edge of the plate.
Cut a 4-inch circle from blue paper. Glue to the center of the paper plate.
To make the washcloth, cut a 4 by 5 1/2 inch rectangle from colored paper. Use a color other than blue.
Make a hole through the center of the paper plate and one corner of the colored rectangle. Add the brad to the center of the plate.
Move the washcloth over the feet, pretending to wash them.
The last supper crafts can be used in the month of Easter or anytime you are talking about communion.
