Chapter 11 Activity: Read John 13: 1-17 while soaking feet in water and Epsom salts. Then wash one another’s feet and finish up with pedicures!


  • A Bible

  • Two tubs deep enough to soak feet (or sit on chairs and put feet in bathtub to soak)

  • Epsom salts with or without essential oils (optional)

  • Foot buffer (optional)

  • Toenail clippers (optional)

  • Nail polish

  • Towel for drying

  • If you don't already have these supplies, this is an affordable kit with all the tools you’d need for nails.


Prepare tubs for soaking. Add warm water and a cup or so of Epsom salts. If you want to add essential oils, drop a couple of drops to the Epsom salts first, stir together, then put in warm water.

Soak feet for 20 minutes or so. You can listen to music (here’s a great playlist), go through discussion questions or talk about roses and thorns, watch a favorite show, draw, or even color the included coloring sheets while feet are soaking.

During the soak, make sure to read John 13: 1-17 and then wash one another’s feet. It’s more of a symbolic action so no need to get out the soap and scrub!

After 15-20 minutes of soaking, dry off and buff and or clip toenails (optional), then paint one another’s toes!
