Bible Story: A Special Meal
Bible Text: Matt. 26:17-30; Luke 22: 7-20; 1 Cor. 11:23-26
Suggested Learning Outcome: This creative placemat will help children remember the reason Jesus had the last supper was because He loves you and me!
- Contact paper
- Light colored construction paper (yellow, light blue, pink)
Teacher Preparation: Write out the words “Jesus Loves You and Me” in large block letters and make copies for each student on light colored construction paper (see image). Pre-cut rectangles of contact paper approximately 12 inches x 16 inches. You will need 2 per student.
Step One. Have students color the “Jesus Loves You and Me” page anyway they like.
Step Two. Give children a sheet of pre-cut contact paper. Help children carefully peel away the contact paper covering. Guide the students in centering the “Jesus Loves You and Me” page (back down) onto the center of the contact paper.
Step Three. Allow children to sprinkle or place sequins all over the page and contact paper for decoration. Place the remaining piece of contact paper over the decorated paper to create a personally crafted placemat (see image).
