Bible Story: God Gave Moses the Ten Commandments
Bible Text: Exodus 19:1-6; 20:1-17; 31:18
Suggested Learning Outcome: This craft will help children begin memorizing the Ten Commandments.
- Black construction paper
- White construction paper
- White crayons or colored pencils
Teacher Preparation: Pre-cut black construction paper into two large “tablet” shapes (one set per student) (see image).
Step 1. Give each student a white sheet of paper and instruct them to trace their hand prints, both right and left hands. Guide children in cutting out their handprints and gluing one hand print on each tablet shape (see image).
Step 2. Help students copy a shortened version of each commandment onto each individual finger. Young children may need the commandments written for them (see image).
Step 3. Lay the tablet shapes on top of each other and staple along the edge to create a book that opens to reveal the handprint commandments (see image).
Step 4. Instruct students to give their booklet a title using white crayons or colored pencils (see image).
