I will be blessed as I obey the Ten Commandments
Friend June 2006, suggestion # 1


Display a poster of the Ten Commandments, or list them on the chalkboard (see Exodus 20:3–17).

  1. On 20 pieces of paper write the numbers 1 through 10 twice ~ one number per paper.
  2. Place them in scattered order facedown on the floor.
  3. Working in pairs (a younger child with an older child), play a matching game by having the younger child toss a beanbag on a paper.
  4. Turn the paper over, and have the older child toss a beanbag on another paper. If that paper matches the first number, remove those papers and have the children recite the commandment out loud and show or tell a way we can keep that commandment.
  5. If there is no match, turn both papers back over and give the next pair a turn.
  6. Continue until all of the commandments have been shared.

Use a personal experience to explain how you have been blessed by obeying a commandment.

Sing "Keep the Commandments" (pp. 146–47).
