The Ten Commandments

Well I just realized that I haven't posted a video in quite a while now and it is about time. This is a video that can help in memorizing the ten commandments. It is catchy, rhymes, and has pictures to help a long the way. Enjoy!

I also found this cute finger play for younger children -
Ten commandments - A Finger Play
by Carol McAdoo Rehme, May 1998, Friend

1 This is the mountain where Moses went. (Put fingertips together to form a peak.)
2 This is the tablet Heavenly Father sent. (Put hands together, palms open.)
3 This is Christ’s finger that wrote the words. (Have pointer finger “write” on open palm.)
4 This is the voice that Moses heard. (Cup hands around mouth.)
5 This is the cloud on the mountain tall. (Clasp hands above head.)
6 These are the commandments—count ten in all. (Wiggle all ten fingers.)
7 One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten!

Here is a coloring page as well as a bookmark - Moses and the Ten Commandments Coloring Page ~ Ten Commandments Bookmark

All of this could be rolled into a fun Family Home Evening for all age groups. I haven't tried it yet but maybe next time.

The video is really fun and educating. Thanks for posting it! My sister has small children and she's always looking for new ideas for FHE. :)
