The 10 Commandments
I am typically quite the stickler for keeping the scripture verbatim from the Bible. I tend to be one of those people who don’t believe in ‘dumbing down’ the Bible for little kids. However, in the case of the 10 Commandments, I find myself summarizing each commandment in simple language that is truly easier for children to understand. I pair this with the Bible (we like the ESV and NLT versions), but for these 10 Commandment coloring pages, you will find that I have used simple language that children will easily understand.
The 10 Commandments are taken from Exodus 20.
- The First Commandment – Only have one God
- The Second Commandment – Praise and Worship Him Only
- The Third Commandment – Do not use Bad Words (do not take the name of the lord thy god in vain)
- The Fourth Commandment –Keep the Lord’s Day Special (Sabbath Day) (on the seventh day rest)
- The Fifth Commandment – Obey your parents
- The Sixth Commandment –Do not Hurt Anyone
- The Seventh Commandment – Keep Marriage Sacred
- The Eighth Commandment – Do not take anything that is not yours
- The Ninth Commandment –Tell the Truth (do not bear false witness)
- The Tenth Commandment – Don’t be jealous of other people’s stuff

Ways to Use
Now that you have your 10 commandments coloring pages, let’s explore some creative ways to use them for effective faith-based lessons kids! These coloring pages are versatile and can be incorporated into various teaching methods and activities. They are specifically great for Sunday School lessons!
One simple way to use these coloring pages is by displaying them on bulletin boards. This is especially helpful in a classroom setting. The full-color version upgrade would be a great way to illustrate each 10 Commandments as you work through them in a Sunday School class or homeschool.
These coloring pages are fantastic for Sunday School settings! Print out multiple copies of the coloring pages and distribute them to the children. As they color, you can discuss each commandment and its meaning. It’s a fun and interactive approach!
For those who prefer hands-on activities, there are plenty of simple ways to bring the lessons of the Ten Commandments to life. One idea is to create a commandments-themed scavenger hunt! Children can search for objects or symbols that represent each commandment. This activity not only keeps kids active and entertained but also encourages them to think critically about the meaning behind each commandment.
If you’re feeling crafty, you can grab the upgrade and create a mini-book! Print out the pages and bind them together using staples or string. This way, children can have their own personalized booklet that they can read and color anytime they want.
One of the best ways to use these is by laminating the pages and then using dry-erase markers to color them, which makes them reusable!
Finally, don’t forget the power of the holy Bible itself. Use the coloring pages as a companion to your Bible readings. Before or after reading the story of Moses and the Ten Commandments, have children color the corresponding pages. This hands-on activity helps children visualize the commandments and strengthens their connection to the biblical text. Here are a few of our favorite storybook Bibles.
