Bible IQ is excited to share that our proprietary product, the Commandment Eggs®, is now an exciting, unique, and free craft!
Commandment Eggs consists of 12 plastic eggs that each contain a double-sided commandment tablet with the text on one side and the hand signal on the other side. [Yes, your youth will not only learn the Ten Commandments, but they will also have fun learning them using their hands!] Moreover, the Commandment Eggs includes God’s two Greatest Commandments – “to Love God and Love Others.” So, in summary, this divine dozen includes the 10 Commandments + the 2 Greatest Commandments.
This kingdom-building craft is completely free and perfect for all students, children, youth groups, Sunday School classes, Vacation Bible School groups, etc. If you are interested in doing this one-of-a-kind craft with your youth, please follow the 5 easy step-by-step instructions below. We provide everything you need except for the egg cartons and plastic eggs.
“Crack open the wonder of God’s commandments!”
Step 1: Obtain egg cartons. We recommend the clear egg cartons, but any styrofoam egg carton will work.
Step 2: Obtain plastic eggs. We recommend a variety of colors.
Step 3: Print the below Commandment Eggs packaging (one for each youth). Please note if you are using a clear egg carton the packaging has bendable sides that display nicely and fits inside the carton seamlessly. If you are using a styrofoam egg carton, you will need to cut off the extra packaging tabs and then glue the main packaging on top of the egg carton.
Step 4: Print the 12 commandment egg tablets (one set for each youth). [Please note there’s a colored version as well as a black & white version in which the youth can choose to color.] Have each youth: 1) cut out each commandment egg tablet, 2) bend together and then tape/glue each egg tablet so it becomes a double-sided tablet, and 3) place a tablet in each of the 12 plastic eggs.
Step 5: Print the Instructional Guide (one for each youth). The first image is for informational purpose. Please use the second image which include 4 instructional cards per page and creates an ideal size for the youth to place inside their individual egg cartons.
