Holy Week Notebooking Pages And Resources For Kids

Continuing on with our Religious notebooking project, today I’m posting some printable Holy Week pages. They go with pages 56-59 in Tell Me About The Catholic Faith (TMACF), or any other Holy Thursday resource you would rather use with your kids.

The Last Supper

My Thoughts On Pages 56-57 in TMACF:

The page is titled “The Last Supper,” but actually, it starts with Palm Sunday and does a pretty good overview of Holy Week. It even has a little blurb about Passover. I also love the illustrations. And because this is actually a Catholic book, you don’t have to worry about how the whole Last Supper things is worded- it’s just right. 🙂

My Printables:

I gave this page several squares to draw or write in things the kids remembered because a lot of things happened on this page, and during Holy Week. Even on Holy Thursday- the Last Supper, The washing of the feet, the betrayal… there’s a lot going on!

Additional Resources:

  • *Mass Connection!* Of course, be sure to tell your kids that The Last Supper was the first Mass, and that this is where we get the Eucharist from! 🙂 I like to show the kids the page in their Mass books where Mass connections are, so we quickly turned to the Last Supper page (22-23) to see this same scene.mass connections for kids
  • *Another Mass Connection!* At the beginning of the page, it talks about Jesus coming into Jerusalem on the donkey and says “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” You can show them scene on page 21 of your Mass book.
  • Let them wash each other’s feet- always a great activity to go with Holy Thursday
  • Make easy unleavened bread– my kids always love to cook
  • Last Supper Craft– This has all of the apostles and Jesus. You color, cut, and glue them around an egg carton to make the very famous Last Supper scene. It’s printable and FREE!
  • Also, check out my First Holy Communion page for more resources about the Eucharist.

Good Friday Notebooking Page

My Thoughts On Pages 58-59 in TMACF:

This page picks up with Jesus in the garden, and ends with his body laid in the tomb. It even has a little box explaining death on a cross. Again, I love the illustrations and the way these pages are laid out in this book!

My Printables:

Again, I wanted this page to be very open ended, and encourage them to include more than 1 aspect of the story, so I put 4 separate boxes on it. They can either draw or write (or both) something in each box, so this page works for children of all ages.

After we read these pages, I pulled out our Stations of the Cross Eggs (one of my favorite resources for kids of all time!) and went through them. The kids really enjoyed contemplating these while deciding what to draw on their pages, and the little kids traced several of the objects from the eggs.

I really think that having these open ended pages like this and allowing them to draw what they want helps them to meditate on the story. I’ve been very happy with these pages.
