Last night Sweet P and I read about the Last Supper so I decided to make her a "last supper" themed dinner and she had a great time with the "bread" and "wine."
Cottage cheese wasn't really part of the theme, she just needed more protein. I tried to think of something clever, but it wasn't coming.
The green beans are palm branches. We talked on Tuesday about Palm Sunday and read about how Jesus rode into town on a donkey while people waved palm branches and sang and cheered Hosanna in the Highest. She waved them around a bit before eating them.
The grapes are, of course, to represent wine, but I also had "wine" made out of blueberry juice and water. I thawed frozen blueberries in the microwave and poured the juice into a dixie cup. I added water to it and it stayed dark purple. She loved it and even said "mmm, bluebewwies!"
The "bread" is made out of cheese quesadillas. I don't have a circle cookie cutter so I used the bottom of an Easter egg and I must say it worked really well (might have to keep one in the cookie cutter bin).
Did you do anything with your family on Holy Thursday to remember the Last Supper?
