1. Print out host template. Cut out and fold host so that it opens like a door with the picture of Jesus inside.

2. Print out template of chalice. Cut out template. Fold a yellow piece of construction paper in half and put the flat side of the chalice template on the folded edge. Trace around template and cut out. When you open it you will have a complete chalice. Be sure to draw in the top part of the chalice.

3. Glue chalice to your background paper and let your child decorate it with crayons, markers, glitter, plastic jewels, sequins, etc.

4. Glue host above the chalice making sure the door opens the correct way. You can also draw a cross on the outside of the host.

Crafty Crafters: Last Supper (chalice)






So how crafty are you?

What is your favorite religious craft you make for The Last Supper?



Here is a craft I make with my students using a plastic wine glass:




Introduce craft: During the Last Supper, Jesus said this to his disciples, “Take this, all of you, and drink from it, for this is the chalice of my blood.” What do we drink the Blood of Christ out of? (A chalice.)
