The ten commandments can be pretty heavy duty stuff for kids. Everywhere kids go they are bombarded by rules. Stand in line, don’t talk in the hall, don’t run in the hall, hold my hand in the parking lot, and so on. What do these rules have in common? They are easy to understand in kid language.
Today’s craft has the 10 commandments in kid language. And, there done so that they know how God is reflected in them. Based off of The Story of Hope kid lessons, the wording is friendly. The kids can read them and then put God’s truth beside them.
- 1 ‘stone’ paper per child and 1 list per child Exodus 20
- glue, scissors
- tablecloth to keep that sticky glue off your rented table if that is where you are located
Read through the 10 commandments then have the kids cut up the others, put them in order, and glue down. You can even take it a step farther if you want and use a sidewalk and color over the stones and get the textured look. I happened to have gray paper, so I just used that.
Kids are going to understand these statements. It can even be a good reminder for adults too! Have fun!
