Teach kids about the Last Supper during Easter Week with this family-friendly dinner idea and printable discussion cards!
How To Bring Christ Into Your Easter Celebrations
If you’re looking for a fun way to celebrate Easter (that doesn’t include candy, bunnies, and eggs), do a family-friendly Last Supper.
Doing a Last Supper dinner on Passover Thursday during Easter/Holy Week has become one of our favorite Christ-Centered Easter traditions for the last 10 years now.
Doing a Last Supper is a great opportunity to eat good food and discuss Christ’s Atonement.
Simple Last Supper Menu
You can keep your Passover meal as simple as you like. The key to doing this is to make it enjoyable and that includes you, too! So let me tell you how to keep it simple!
You really can choose any foods your family will eat that were similar to those foods in the time of Jesus. Our favorites include some traditional foods and some slightly altered:
- Chicken Kabobs
- Pita bread & hummus
- artisan bread
- Martinelli’s sparkling cider (non-alcoholic)
- Slow Cooker lentil soup
The great thing about this menu is that the foods are so simple that you won’t be cooking all day!
You can serve the food however you’d like, but I invested in some wood platters (similar to these) and I love using them for our Last Supper!
Eat On The Floor!
You’ll get major cool mom points if you eat this meal on the floor!
Grab a picnic blanket or tablecloth and place it in the living room or kitchen floor. Set out all your food and you’re good to go!
How To Discuss The Last Supper!
If you search for a family-friendly Passover dinner program, you likely won’t find one.
That’s why I created our own and am so happy to share it with you!
This Last Supper program is:
- Easy for children to understand
- Short (you won’t be sitting for hours)
- Adaptable for any ages – the prompts can lead to short or long discussions depending on the ages
- Full of scripture verses and song ideas
This Last Supper program walks us through what happened on the last Thursday of Jesus Christ’s life including the Last Supper with his disciples, suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane and then being arrested.
If you have young ones, you can keep the details very simple, but as they grow older, you can dive into deeper discussions.
This is a preview of the discussion cards. There are 12!
