Learn the 10 commandments for kids
It’s hard to believe but the school year for our kids and grandkids is coming to an end. And the Awana program at our church has already finished for the year. No more Bible memory verses for the grandkids til September? Ahhhh, but that’s where this Sandwich Generation grandmother comes in. I love teaching them to “hide God’s Word in their hearts” ALL year long, so each summer for the past few years, we’ve done our own little mini-program of encouraging Bible verses for children and grandchildren. And for the last two years, I’ve shared them here at SandwichINK. Last year, we worked on teaching 1 Corinthians 13 – Love is patient and kind to the grandkids. The year before, it was the Fruit of the Spirit. This year, it’s Ten Commandments activities children and grandchildren (and grandparents) will enjoy!
Ten Commandments Activities for Kids
Did you know that, while all churches use the same passage of Scripture for the 10 commandments – Exodus 20 – they don’t all divide it the same? I memorized them when I was very young, using the Lutheran catechism. Since half of my grandkids will be using a different catechism, I’m going to use theirs as my guide as I pull their Bible memory verses directly from the Bible, using my beloved New American Standard Bible (NASB), though I may also read the passage from other versions to help them get a fuller grasp of it. Here’s the first commandment for the kids and grandkids – complete with cute country clip art. 🙂
I am the LORD your God…You shall have no other gods before Me. Exodus 20:2-3
Because of the wide span of ages of my grandkids, I’m going to focus on short and easy Bible memory verses for the children. But I will be reading them the whole section of Scripture that covers each verse and I’ll share the whole section here as well, for any of you who want their kids and grandkids to learn extra.
Pictures Help Us Learn the 10 Commandments for Kids
Pictures we see and pictures we make are a great help for teaching the grandkids different Bible verses and concepts. I enjoy making many myself – and love to share them with you. I also appreciate finding great resources. Etsy is one resource I’ve used and love! I found some great Bible verse coloring pages last year some special projects. So, of course, I checked them out to see what they might have to help us learn the 10 commandments for kids. I was pleased to find several cute items. Since Etsy is full of individually created handcrafts, things may change so I’m not showing specific pictures. But if you click here now, you’ll head to the search I used to find wall hangings in general with several lovely options. Then I typed in a search for 10 commandments coloring pages for our grandkids. Currently there is only one but it’s very cute! Click here now to find that and any others that might have been added. 🙂
10 Comandments Crafts and Songs for Kids
I’ll also be sharing 10 commandments craft ideas and activities for kids along with fun books and songs I turn up to help us all as we work together to learn this important passage from the Word of God. As the Heidelberg Catechism points out quite wonderfully, “QUESTION 103. Can any man keep these ten commandments perfectly? ANSWER. No mere man, since the fall of Adam, ever did or can keep the ten commandments perfectly. QUESTION 104. Of what use are the ten commandments to us? ANSWER. They teach us our duty, and show our need of a Savior.” What a great reason to learn these inspirational Bible verses, don’t you think?
