10 Commandments for Kids: 10 Ideas You Can Try

Games

Playing active games at the beginning of a lesson helps children engage (and burn off some energy). Meanwhile, playing games at the end of a lesson, when time allows, reinforces what students have learned.

1. Cup Knock Down

For this active game, the teacher or leader calls out commandments one at a time. Players then take turns trying to knock down a cup that represents that particular law.

2. Tablet Water Painting

Tactile learners will love this activity. And teachers will love how mess-free it actually is. Simply have young kids “paint” flat rocks with water. They can either free paint or trace words of Scripture. Just write a commandment (or a few words from it) on the rock ahead of time, in white crayon.

3. 10 Commandments for Kids Bingo
