They Got them All!!

One more thing we accomplished this summer- we learned the 10 Commandments. I found this great DVD set, K10C, that illustrated each of the commandments in a very kid friendly way. It had a great activity book that followed along with it. I know, I know...teaching my kids about adultery and murder?? Awk!

Commandment Number 6: Do Not Murder..the example was a thief who killed a donkey. Thank goodness it was simple and the kids understood it.
Commandment Number 7: Be Faithful in Marriage....dealt with a woman who wanted to sing with a man who was not her husband. Ok...good example. Kids got it and had no questions. whew.
What I liked best about learning these, is we can use the rules in our house as "God's Rules". We obey Mommy & Daddy as a way to honor your Mother & Father. And we do not tell white lies because which of God's commandments wants us not to? And why is it better to say "Oh my goodness?" It has really been working well. Well, most of the time. My kids aren't angels.
So here are my kiddos, 6 weeks later and they still remember them all. I guess they really do absorb what we teach them. Most of the time...

Too sweet! I just ordered a 10 commandments craft, and was pondering ways to teach the girls the commandments without delving too deep into a couple of the ones you mentioned ;) This looks great!

Becca you are such a wonderful mom! Way to go kids! Great job!
I wrote that dvd series down. That would be perfect for my boys!

There is a contest going on. Unfortunately your kids could not enter but mom and dad can! Go to www.10andwin.com

It has to do with the 10 commandments! It will make you even more proud that you have taught them this!

Hope you have a great day!
