Free Resources to Help Children Learn About the Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments are a very important part of our faith.  Without knowing the Ten Commandments, God's rules for us to live by, we cannot possibly perform an examination of conscience to be able to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation or improve ourselves by developing virtues which are directly contrary to sin.

The Ten CommandmentsTeaching children about the Ten Commandments seems overwhelming at first, but it can easily be done using a variety of our resources.  One of the very first recommendations we give to parents and fellow catechists is to begin early in life and consider using the book pictured at left: The Ten Commandments, I Obey God by Rev. Lawrence G. Lovasik as a base.  With a Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur, this little picture book helps to introduce and easily explain each of the commandments one by one with timely examples which ring true today just as they did when this book was written in 1978.  A very simple approach is to read through the book and then reinforce the content and teachings using our free printable resources below. 

You will find a very nice selection of free printables including notebooking sheets, mini-books, games, hand-outs, learning cards and so much more.  You will even find two online games we created that directly correspond with the content that we hope your child will really enjoy playing. 

Let's start with the basics first.  Here is a listening of God's rules for us to live by.

The Ten Commandments

I. I am the LORD your God: you shall not have other Gods before me.

II. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.

III. Remember to keep holy the LORD'S Day.

IV. Honour your father and your mother.

V. You shall not kill.

VI. You shall not commit adultery.

VII. You shall not steal.

VIII. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.

IX. You shall not covet your neighbour's wife.

X. You shall not covet your neighbour's goods.
