Here's a cute video (in the right column) from Willow Creek to help with teaching the Ten Commandments to our kids and grand children. A great "rhythm song" that's a whole lot of fun. It's geared for elementary school ages though many older and younger grandkids might also enjoy it. I certainly did.
I LOVE that it is wrapped all around the inspiring Bible verses in Matthew 22:36-39, "'Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law ?' And [Jesus] said to him, ''You shall love the Lord Your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'" As Jesus went on to explain, "On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets."
Those are the Bible verses I'm planning on ending this series with as they make a terrific "exclamation point" to the Ten Commandments Bible memory verses for children, don't you think? I considered saving this video til the end, but thought it would be useful throughout, so here tis. (By the way, if your grandchildren love "I Spy" activities, tell them to "Spy" each of the 10 commandments written out and flashed on the screen in different ways – like on a kid T-shirt or on someone's cell phone. It's another great way to get the information into their brains in different ways – always an excellent mental activity for young AND baby boomer brains. )
The video is from GodTube and, for some unknown reason, it just would NOT "play nice" with my blog software. I finally got it to work by using my wonderful Thesis WordPress Theme tools and their multimedia box that you are, hopefully, seeing in the top right corner. Just click on the arrow to watch it. I'll wait. IF it is NOT showing, you can find this Ten Commandments rhythm song video for kids directly at GodTube by clicking here. (Gotta love those fun technical difficulties, true? And even if not, GOTTA 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18!)
Isn't it a cute little ditty! And it's not just FUN for our grandchildren. It also helps them learn such an important theological truth in a fresh new way. This Sandwich Generation granny nanny definitely loves that! What did you think about it? Fun for grandparents and grandchildren in your home? Too fast? Too slow? We'd love to hear.
P.S. Just in case you've missed other parts of this 10 Commandments Bible memory verses series for children, you can find a complete list of all the articles at Bible Memory Verses Fun-Teaching The Ten Commandments to Our Children & Grandchildren-1 I'll be updating it each week as I add more.
P.S. Thank you so much for your comments. I appreciate them very much and read each one. I also do my best to reply to them all but, as you can imagine, there are times (many times, lately :) ) when caregiving needs do not allow for that. Thank you for your patience and your sweet comments.
