Week 12 - The Ten Commandments -
Bible Time FUN Through the Bible
Kids Bible Lesson 12 - The Ten Commandments

Welcome to week 12!

This week wraps up the wonderful adventures of Moses. The kids will have fun learning about the Ten Commandments.

The Ten commandments reveal God’s moral standard for how his people should live. Children will learn that God gave us the Ten Commandments and other rules because he loves us and wants us to be happy and live a long life. They also learn that God wants us to obey his commandments, and when we do, we show God that we love him.

Happy learning!

If you haven’t read the introduction to Bible Time yet, I recommend you read the outline about the Bible lessons for children first.

Children's bible lesson about the ten commandments - Key Concepts
The key concepts that we focused on this week are:

  • God gives us rules because he loves us.

  • God wants us to obey his commandments.

  • We show God our love when we are obedient.

You can also come up with your own key concepts.

Bible Verse for kids
The Bible verse for this lesson is Exodus 20:2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery”.
This Bible verse should be simple enough for your toddler to memorize after a week of practice.

Bible Story Tips

  • We read “The Ten Commandments” beginning on page 23 of the children's Bible Storybook called Bible-Time Stories and Rhymes.

  • During story, draw attention to the key concepts for this lesson.

  • Don't forget to ask questions related to the story, for example, “Why did God give us the Ten Commandments?”

  • The girls learned that in being obedient to God we show him that we love him.

  • After the Bible story and discussion session, we stand up and do the interactive rhyme found in the Bible storybook

After the story and rhyme, we say a prayer that is related to the Bible story. You can either have your children repeat after you or allow them to come up with their own prayer.

Bible Song about the ten commandments

  • The Bible song for this week is "Oh How I Love Jesus".

  • We cast the song from YouTube to the television, so our children can see the motions on the big screen.
