Helps

1. Mark Chapter 14 and Luke 22:17-20 - Try to impress on the children that Jesus knew this was the last time they would be together before He died so He wanted to make a Special Supper for them. Bring in some sandals or flip flops and discuss why feet need to be washed. 

You may want to let the children walk in some dirt or mud and share with them that most of the roads in Jesus’s day were not paved and would be dirt or mud.

2. John 13:12-14 - Explain that we are to wash each other’s feet to show we are humble and no better than anyone else. Try to impress on the children that we should be a servant like Jesus was.

3. Bread represents Jesus’s body and the grape juice represents His blood.

4. They sang a hymn and went out.  John 14-17 is Jesus' last words, potentially in the upper room, or on the trip to the Mount of Olives.

5. Read Matthew 26:30 and sing a hymn.

6. Use Google or Pinterest “Last supper craft” for ideas.
