    What you'll need:
    • tape
    • markers or crayons - 4 different colors
    • paper or index cards
    • scissors

    10 Commandment Sunday School Game

    We like to call this game Holy Name Scramble.
    Before class, cut out 18 small squares. We used 3 x 2 inch squares for ages 4 to 7, but for older kids you could make the squares a bit smaller or for smaller kids make the squares a bit larger. The size is totally up to you.

    On the squares, you'll need to write the words "God", "Jesus", "Christ", and "Lord".

    Use one letter for each card. Each word will need to have it's own color (see picture below). We used purple, blue, green, and red. The picture below isn't very good. I took it with my phone, but you get the idea.

    Next, we hid the letters along the walls and hallways using tape. We lined the kids up against one wall. On the count of three, the kids took off running to find the letters.

    Tip: Since we have small children, we told the kids to only find 2 letters each. This allowed all of the kids to find letters without feeling left out. Once everyone found two letters, we let them go search again.

    When the kids found the letters, they raced back to the table to unscramble the words. Since each word was one color, it was easier for them to figure out each one.

    Tip: For older kids, use only one color and let them figure out what each word is. This will take longer and often they will find they have missed a letter and will have to go searching for it.

    Object of this Game/Lesson

    The object for this game is to teach kids about the holy names of our Lord and Savior and how precious these names are. Talk to your Sunday school class about how these names aren't meant to be used when we are angry or thrown around in everyday language for no reason at all.

    Ask the kids, "Have you ever heard anyone say, Oh, my and then add God's name to it?"

    Then ask, "Did you know that was a sin?"

    Refer to the Commandment number 3 and explain how keeping God's name holy is one of the 10 Commandments we are to follow.

    If we use the Lord's name in vain, how can we be witnesses to others?

    As Christians, we need to set an example and not act or talk like the world.
