The Very First Lord's Supper - Book and Craft

The older girls (ages 11 and 12) and I were inspired by a craft over at Catholic Icing, to put together an egg carton Last Supper display for our mantel.


We followed the instructions provided on the site (click here, to view them), except instead of using the coloring sheet characters provided by Catholic Icing - which are based on Leonardi da Vinci's famous painting, I traced, scanned, resized, and printed our own people (it was a lot less work than it sounds)...



...for the girls to cut, color...


...and glue into place...



...based on Michael Steff's illustrations from the Arch Book the younger children are currently reading, covering the events from Matthew 26:17-75, Mark 14:12-72, and Luke 22:7-71.




It's great to be a homeschooler.

What a great diorama. The kids loved it I'm sure!

I saw Arch books in our bookstore, but I admit that I didn't care much for the way they are illustrated. Your girls did a superb job though!
