Last Supper Craft For Holy Thursday

I’ve been working on a craft here, and I’m so excited to share it with all of you today! It’s a Last Supper craft for Holy Thursday, and it’s based on the famous Leonardo da Vinci Last Supper painting. You can find all of my First Communion Resources for Kids here. This craft assembles to create a 3D rendition of the Last Supper scene, gluing onto an egg carton. So here it is- the Last Supper craft for Holy Thursday

Last Supper 3D Printable Craft

Now, here’s the beauty- this is super easy to do, and I’m going to tell you how to make one yourself! All you need are my printables (provided below) and 2 egg cartons! Well, I guess you also need crayons, scissors, and glue ;-).

How to make your own:
1. Take 2 egg cartons, and cut off the lids.
2. Snip slits in one carton just before the last 2 cups.
3. Overlap 2 sets of cups and fit together with the slits.
4. When you’re sure you have them fitting right, secure them with glue.

Steps of Egg Carton Craft

This will leave you with “one” long egg carton with 11 cups across.

5. Print, color, and cut out my downloads (scroll down for downloads).

6. Glue one person to each upside down egg carton cup. You may have to cut them a little shorter than I drew them depending on the egg cartons you’re using. Glue them all across the front side of the back row, and make sure the 2 tall ones go on the ends. See the picture:

The table folds in half and glues on last. 

Children Crafting

Need to know what order to glue them in? If you want them to match the da Vinci painting, match their names from the coloring pages to the order he painted them in:

Never has living the liturgical year been so easy and affordable!

7. Color and cut out the table from my printables (scroll down for downloads) and fold them in half along the dotted line. Adjust the length needed for your egg cartons, and glue the “table” on across the tops and front of the egg carton cups. The table will print in 2 pieces- you have to piece them together.

Finished Craft

Here is a really good angle that shows both the printables and also the egg carton.

Last Supper Craft for Kids
If you’d like to include an art lesson about Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper as you do this project (which as an art major myself, I think is a fabulous idea), here are some things you can do. Tell your children that this painting is supposed to be the instant that Jesus says to the disciples, “Amen, I say to you, one of you will betray me” (Matthew 26:21). Ask your children what they think of the apostle’s reactions. Then go over these things:
  • The apostles are all reacting, but Christ is the calm in the midst of the storm.
  • There are many symbols of the trinity in the painting- 3 windows behind Jesus, Jesus’ arms make him the shape of a triangle, and the apostles are all seated in groups of 3.
  • In the first group of 3, the apostles all seem surprised- Andrew to the point that his hands are in a “stop” gesture. Bartholomew has stood up so quickly his legs are still crossed.
  • Peter is holding a knife, foreshadowing his upcoming violence at the garden of Gethsemane.
  • Judas is holding a bag- symbolizing the bag of silver he will betray Jesus for. His face is in utter shock at Jesus’ knowledge of his plan.
  • John seems to be “swooning”. The most asked picture about this painting is, “Why does John look that way?”
  • Doubting Thomas, with his finger in the air, indeed looks doubtful!
  • James the greater seems stunned with his arms in the air, while Philip seems to request an explanation.
  • Matthew and Jude both look to Simon for an explanation, while he seems unable to provide one.

  1. Lacy, you are amazing!!! Thanks for another great project!

  2. Amazing_Grace says

    Oh, my gosh! This is WONDERFUL!!!!!!!

  3. I'm always so impressed by your projects.

  4. Texas Exiles says

    I know it's a fabulous project when my children beg to do it NOW!

    My son is out looking for egg cartons now ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. This is adorable. I'm sure my 8 year old will want to do this craft!

  6. I love this craft and the combined art lesson. All three of my girls can help with this. Thanks for sharing:)

  7. Oh my goodness!! This is incredible! ๐Ÿ™‚ I want to be like Lacy when I grow up! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Christine says

    Seton's Art 1 for Young Catholics provides the same craft only with a different table. We have done this craft almost every year, using some wood purchased from Joanns for the table. A picture of Seton's figures can be seen here.

  9. Kathleen's Catholic says

    What a great idea! I think we'll be seeing you in the bookstores someday. Good stuff.

  10. Alexandra says

    Your completed project is fabulous. Super idea!

  11. Thanks so much! I will save this to use as part of Da Vinci artist study.

  12. This is a WONDERFUL Holy Thursday craft … thanks!

  13. Anonymous says

    I saw this idea in a book somewhere and thought it would be a great writing project to add to this craft: Have your child make themselves to add to the Last Supper table and then write about what they would have said, felt, thought, done, etc.

  14. Thank you so much for your great ideas! I used your Pretzel Card with my students today. They colored them while the pretzels were baking. It's a great keepsake for Lent!

  15. Thank you for this great craft! I now know why I have been saving egg cartons all month! Our picture study this month is The Last Supper….I love when everything "works".
    Happy and Holy Triduum and Easter!

  16. Thrifty and Chic Mom says

    Did this Today and my kids loved it, I posted with a link thanks for all you do!

  17. Lacy, I thought this would make a good craft for the feast of St. Pius X, who is known as the Pope of the Eucharist. Unfortunately, it is listed as part of the Scribd Archive, so I have to pay a fee to download and print it. Any chance you can send it to me?

  18. Scribd is now charging for downloads. (That stinks.) Any possibility you could send these to me or move them to another free site.
    I use, a file sharing site especially for homeschoolers. It is totally free to use and to download from.

  19. Hello

    I'm looking for a great dojo to study [url=][b]Krav Maga[/b][/url]
    -any ideas? I live in

    Ft. Lauderdale

    I also found for you neat forum members this great [url=][b]Krav Maga Resource[/b][/url]
    – I hope you learn from it it.

  20. I love this project and would love to do it, but have been unable to download the pictures of the apostles. When i click the link, it takes me to another page where I am unable to access the images. I would gladly pay for them, if I could figure out how! Any way you can email them to me? My class is next Monday and I already have my egg cartons ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you! Carolan

  21. I did this project with my 8 year old step-daughter. We loved it and the project gave a us a perfect chance to talk about what was happening at the time the picture was 'taken'. What was this one or that one saying when Our Lord said someone was to betray him??

  22. Thank you! This is a one-hit wonder! I thought no-one would have a Davinci Last Supper craft, and this is the first thing that came up and it's wonderful! My davinci fan 3rd grader is psyched. Being a Presbyterian church educator, I haven't run into your site before, but I'm a Catholic crafts fan now! Thanks a lot–this is a worthwhile craft that will interest and teach at many levels.

  23. Jennifer Gregory Miller says

    I forgot about this craft. I save all my egg cartons, and with a Lenten/Holy Week homeschool retreat I'm planning, this might be one of my crafts!

  24. This is a great craft! Thank you so much for sharing this.

  25. asiamarysia says

    Thank You! I used your idea with my 3-rd graders, and it was awesome!

  26. Hi Lacy: I'm Cecy from Los Angeles, I'm catechist in St Clare Parish, I would like to share the Last Supper craft with my children but i have problems with the downloads. Could you please send me the downloads? Thank you so much and God Bless You. Email:

  27. I would love to make this project with my 2nd grade First Communion class. But I can't get the pictures to download. Can anyone help! Thank you

  28. Lacy @ Catholic Icing says

    Cathy- send me an email to lacy {at} catholicicing {dot} com and I'll email you the files.

  29. Thank you! We will definitely be doing this next week. ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. You inspired me!! I created a Easter Story scene for the empty tomb.

  31. Raising Little Saints says

    Lacy, you rock! I know that if I need something Liturgical, I can always come here and you have the right thing for me to use with the kids! ๐Ÿ™‚

    So I wanted to share what happened to me, lol, with my dear 6 year old. I tried doing this craft but he decided to challenge daVinci, lol….I blogged about it because it really was very cute (his thinking)…I just love the simplicity that children bring to the faith… Here is the post:

    Again, thank you for sharing with us! Blessings, Erika

  32. GOODAY!

    I am from Australia and a scripture teacher. Thankyou for this inspirational idea. Keep up the blessed work.

  33. This is awesome! I am using it as a craft in for my teacher in Sunday School – thank you so much for sharing! I am also going to use it with my kids at home….love these creative ideas!

  34. Thank you so much. I’m from Fiji teaching Catechism in Dubai, this is great. Keep it up! God bless x

  35. Pat Gureski says

    This is amazing! Thank you so much for providing this easy to do learning session for my students.

  36. This is amazing! You are very talenented.
    A friend introduced me to your site and I now follow it in my blogger feed.
    I am now teaching Faith Formation at my church to preschool/kindergarteners. Your site has made my lesson planning so easy and fun for the kids! I really appreciate all you do!

  37. Just completed the Last Supper craft with my kindergarten class. It turned out great! Easy enough for the students and we completed it one class period. Thanks!

  38. Thank you so much for sharing this! I am a teacher in the UK and was desperately looking for something fun to do with my 8-10 year olds about the Last supper! Your craft is awesome!!!! Really looking forward to doing it tomorrow!

  39. Genevieve Henderson says

    We are doing this for 120 students that will be having their First Communion in April. We are having a retreat for them at church this Saturday the 24th. Along with a skit of the Last Supper where we will be sharing bread and wine with the students and their parents …thank you for sharing this with our director and I shared it with my friends on Face book.

  40. Even a non-Catholic like me is just blown away by your projects. Your crafts are not only fun and super cool, but really teach the kids – something that is not always done with Christian crafts. I am bookmarking! ๐Ÿ™‚

  41. Lacy,
    I wanted to do the Last Supper with my Second Graders but I can’t find the copies I had. I also can’t print them out from the website. Can you help?

  42. Great! I made up this wonderful piece of art with my catechism pupil, they loved it, and in the end they were able to remember the names of ALL the apostles. Thank you!!!

  43. love, love, love!!!!!!
    I blogged about you craft @ my blog

  44. Thanks so much for all your great stuff!

  45. Our family had SO much fun doing this craft! We finally figured out how to print the downloads (saving as a PDF file first), and even though we had a bit of trouble with the sizing it turned out beautifully. All four of our girls worked together–without arguing!–at the dining room table while I cooked the unleavened bread in the kitchen. This undoubtedly will become a yearly Holy Thursday tradition in our home. THANK YOU!

    • Hopefully just fixed the download problems. So glad you had a good time with this! ๐Ÿ™‚

  46. Thank you for this outstanding project. I teach two grade levels of CCD . This will be a great project for our lessons on the Mass and the Triduum. Thank you so much. Blessings:)

  47. Jen @ says

    So creative – added a link to this in my blog (hope you don’t mind!). I focused on creating a menu similar to what Jesus and his disciples *could* likely have eaten at the Last Supper. Our parish does Holy Thursday dinners, and we will be using this antiqued menu project as our inspiration!

  48. This is awesome! Thank you so much. I intend to use this as a lesson prop for my preschool Sunday School class.

    I appreciate your sharing this.


  49. Beautiful work – great to see the dedication towards a niche area like this..keep it up..

  50. Hi Lacy, thanks for sharing this. My students will definitely be excited to this craft.

    May you kindly send through my email the Last Supper Download 1. There could have been a problem as I attempted several times downloading it but nothing comes out. The next 2 files were successfully downloaded.

    God bless.

  51. As a teacher in a Catholic school with no art teacher, I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your extremely creative, and free, activities! You have such an amazing gift, and my students love to do your projects!

  52. Thank you so much for sharing this project! I am so excited to do it with my students! I finally feel like I am doing something to touch upon this important season!

  53. Thank you so much for sharing these! I have used them the last two Easters for the youth I work with at a residential facility. It’s a wonderful way to decorate their houses for Easter and learn a little church history at the same time! I had misplaced my originals and was so grateful to see you still had them posted on your website. Thank you!!!! Many blessings to you this Holy Week.

  54. Michele Lushbaugh says

    We just did this craft…LOVE IT!!!! I had our daughter cut our the names too and she glued them to the back of the cartons behind each apostle. Now the kids can look at the back to remember which is which. Thank you so much for such great ideas. Tomorrow we’ll do the unleavened bread and Good Friday we are having “thorn bread” with our dinner.

  55. Love this idea! The only thing is, your names in the picture are a bit wrong… Judas is the man turning away from Our Lord… Notice he is the only one of the not looking at Jesus, that was deliberate by the artist, to signify that he was about to betray Him…

  56. This is amazing! You are so creative. Thank you for sharing your talents freely with others. I will definitely be doing this project with my son.

  57. I have used this to make a Last Supper page in a Holy Week book for my students, but before, the pictures were smaller (and all fit on a 12×18 paper). Do you have a page with smaller pictures of the disciples? Thank you!

  58. Rachael Raghoo says

    Omg I loved making this craft. I did it today for my First Communion Class tomorrow. I expect it to be a hit with the kids
    ps from all the way in Trinidad

  59. Cristiana Lidia Soares says

    What a brilliant, brilliant idea!. thank you so much for sharing.

  60. Anita Lockwood says

    Fantastic idea using DaVinci likenesses. thank you for your work so that we can have a great lesson. God Bless you

  61. Wendy Staats says

    Hi Lacy, I really want to try this Last Supper Egg Carton Craft, but unfortunately I can’t see the image or picture of your unfinished craft. It just says “Click to Enlarge”. However, there is no picture to enlarge. Could you send me a picture please? Thanks.

    • Wendy –
      I’m not sure why you are not seeing a picture, as I can see a picture just under the “Click to Enlarge” note. Then, when I click on the picture, it opens another tab and I am able to see it much larger. You might want to try another web browser or device.

      Angie, Catholic Icing Project Manager

  62. Thanks for your ideas on the painting—I used this in my Sunday School Class! Lisa

  63. This has been one of my son’s favorite crafts for years!

  64. Pam Atkinson says

    Thank you so much for sharing this. I know the kids will really enjoy it. This is so appreciated!

  65. Valerie Porter says

    So I Didnโ€™t have enough egg cartons for the last supper craft. I just taped 2 8 x 11 card stock pieces of paper together on the short end, cut them in half, folded into a table. Voila!

  66. Meghan Hajduch-Hamilton says

    We are stuck at home due to the COVID quarantine and I just found your website. It is fabulous! We are so excited to make this craft today and what a great way that I can add a little education about Jesus in to our dismal days! Thank you!

  67. Hi Lacy. I am a subscriber to your site and normally would print out copies of the Last Supper Craft for our faith formation kids to use at church. But since we can’t get together in person right now, would it be OK if I emailed the downloaded files to their parents so they can make this at home? And thank you for all of your creative ideas and resources!

    • We are specifically allowing for emails to be sent to just the classroom or large group it was purchased for just while the schools and churches are closed for Covid 19. Those families should still not send it to others. Thank you so much for asking. God bless!

  68. Tiffany Shepherd says

    Iโ€™m a subscriber and I am having trouble finding this to print? Help please

  69. I think I printed every printable I could this morning that you have for lent! Thank you so much for these amazing resources and giving us some awesome ways to bring lent and Easter alive in our homes. We are so grateful for you and your site!!

  70. Hello I’m your new subscriber, and I’m having a hard time I’m finding it download for last supper craft… I tried everything, and looked all your post, and unfortunately I still can’t find where I can download last supper craft. Can you please direct me how I can download this graph with PDF file. Thank you and God bless!

    • Hi Inna –

      You’ll need to visit the subscriber bonus page. You can find that link and password at the bottom of every regular weekly newsletter (one just got sent out, actually). Once you are on that page, you can scroll until you get to the craft or you can click on the name of it in the tables of contents at the beginning (it is currently #7 on the table of contents, but if anything gets added, it will move to #8). Then just click on each download for it on that page in the section for that craft.
