Welcome to SandwichINK and Word-filled Wednesday with more creative ideas for hiding the Word of God, specifically the 10 commandments for our kids and grand children, into their hearts and minds (not to mention our own boomer and senior hearts 🙂 ).
As you probably know, I LOVE frogs! They're fun for the grandkids to hold (NEVER ME, though!), very educational – as my grandteen and I learned in her science class this year, and they make the cute acronym my grandkids know so well, thanks to my quoting it so much:
So when I spotted this cute frog family clipart, I thought they'd make a fun illustration for the fifth commandment from Exodus 20, Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the LORD your God gives you.
As with all of the 10 commandments, this is definitely one of those encouraging and important Bible memory verses for our children and grand kids, don't you think? And, as I always remind my grandchildren, they are to honor their parents AND whoever their parents put in authority over them, INCLUDING a Sandwich Generation granny OR grampy nanny. 🙂
Be sure to check out Internet Cafe Devotions for more uplifting Bible verses and pictures to brighten our day in the midst of caring for the elderly parents and babysitting the grandchildren.

You never cease to amaze with your creativity!! LOVE those frogs and for years my kiddos had F.R.O.G. bracelets…
a blessing as always!!
(hey…we still could use an article on the sandwich generation for the Family Counter if you are ever led to do one!! :))
You have a God-given talent for working with children. I always enjoy your illustrations of the Bible.
I just love your lessons… it would be so great to be in one of your classes!
Oh Kaye, you are amazing. Love these frogs and the way you used them.
Hope you have a blessed day today♥
Blessings Kaye… How I love your heart and creativity with KIDS!
This is so cute! I love the F.R.O.G. acronym… and love the way you make these applicable for kids in learning the commandments. Great ideas! For some reason the frog’s faces remind me of turtles… so slowly I will Rely and TRUST His Word every day. Honoring my mom’s birthday though she’s no longer celebrating here…can’t help but remember her on her day and honor her! Thank you for your visits to both blogs…that was special.
Peace and JOY,
Oh, so cute and creative! Great word and ideas. Thank you!
Kaye – you are so creative! I know it’s fun for your grandchildren to learn Bible verse this way.
Have a blessed day!
Those are so cute, Kaye. I had a shirt on with a frog that said “ordinary woman, extraordinary God” the other night in the grocery store. A lady liked it, and I could not think of that saying! Bless you, dear friend ~
Ohhh! Those frogs are so cute. I agree with everyone else. You are so creative, especially in the way you teach young children. I wish I had been that way. Still trying even with my older young men. Ugh! Will I ever get it right?
Thank you for the reminder of that verse. I used to love quoting to my guys–they just grimaced. I guess I used it too much in correcting them. Good thing the Lord can work through our mistakes–I’m trying to trust Him for that.
Hi Lori, Thank you so much! 🙂 And I’m definitely there for y’all. I’m actually in the process, as you had mentioned you wanted it in the summer, so I’ll put it at the top of my to do list 🙂 Have a blessed week!
Hi Alice, Thank you 🙂 That’s definitely one of my top 5 faves – working with children and grandchildren! 🙂 Have a blessed week!
Hi Alida, Thank you! I used to have so much fun working as a volunteer for Vacation Bible School with my kids and later with my grandkids. I may get to help with one this coming week as well, grandkid-health permitting. I get as excited as the kids with the singing and easy crafts for kids that quasi-seniors like me can also enjoy. 🙂
Cute… Thank you for sharing!
tooo tooo stinkin cute! i love it Kaye!
Thanks, Susan! 🙂
Oh Peggy, how sweet. Thank you for sharing your delightful family memories, and your creative idea including the turtles. 🙂 Have a blessed week.
Thanks, Theresa! 🙂
Hi Joan, To be honest, sometimes it spurs me on even more. 🙂 Have a lovely and blessed day as well 🙂
How cute, Cathy! I’ll have to watch for that!!! 🙂 Thank you 🙂 🙂 🙂
Depends on the age and the kids, Janis, as you well know 🙂 Some of my grandkids remember it better than others. Some like it better, others like another better. That is an advantage in lots of grandkids. Usually I can find something that appeals to at least one of them. 🙂 And by keeping it up and keeping it fun, it keeps me doing it and teaching them and bit by bit, seed by seed, we get through. It definitely does make a difference in the long run. 🙂 And you are so right that He can work through our goods AND our bads, so we will both be encouraged that HE is IN CONTROL! 🙂 That’s what keeps me going!!! 🙂
Thanks, Stefanie. 🙂
Thanks Amy!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
