Obey Your Parents Sunday School Crafts and Activities

1. Play Stack the "Os" Bible Verse Review Games

Bible Verse Review Game for Sunday School - Stack the Os Bible Game from www.daniellesplace.comWhat you will need: Five feet foam tube pool toys, (I bought one for $1.00 at K-Mart. You can make five sets of verses from each tube.), skinny masking tape, serrated knife, ruler, permanent marker, and scissors.

How to make the Stacking Toy:

1. Using a ruler mark off one- inch segments on the foam tube.

2. Print the Bible verse, "Children, obey your parents, in the Lord: for this is right." on the masking tape, separating each word by a half an inch. Cut the words apart and stick them on the tube, one on top of the other as shown in the picture. Cut the words apart with the knife and place each set of verses in a separate bag. Mix up the sections. You can just write the words on the foam with a Sharpie marker, but if you use tape, you can reuse the shapes for another lesson.

3. In class give each child a set of words. Instruct your children to try to stack the words in order to form the Bible verse from bottom to top. If they are having a hard time, you can give them clues such as, The first word starts with a capital letter and the last word ends in a period.

4. Stack the "Os" Lesson Review Game - Place all the "Os" in the middle of the table and divide your children up into teams of two. Take turns asking teams questions from the lesson and previous lessons. If a team gets it correct, it gets to stack an "O". If it gets it wrong, the next team gets a chance to answer. The team with the highest stack wins.

This activity comes from the Bible Lesson "Obey Your Parents In the Lord" on The Resource Room where you will find a complete lesson with crafts, activities, and review games.

How to make: 1. Before class print out the Obey O-Meter Activity Sheet (or make your own) onto white paper and make copies. (This Pattern is available to members on The Resource Room.)

2. In class talk to your children about obeying. Ask them when it is hard for them obey their parents. Write something that each child would like to work on obeying during the week on each child's paper.

3. When your children's parent show up to pick them up, tell them what your children have been learning and show them the Obey O-Meter Activity Sheet. The parent should move the arrow on the paper up and down according to how well their child is obeying during the week. The children can bring their paper back the next week and share how well they obeyed with the class.

Review the Bible Verse

Obey Your Parents - Have your children stack the Bible Verse "Os' in order if they haven't already done it. When the children are finished ask them what they think is the most important word in the verse. Hold up a section of the tube and show them that it is shaped like an "O". Tell them that the most important word in the verse starts with an "O". We should obey our parents.

In the Lord - Ask them what the second phrase in the Bible verse says, "In the Lord". This is an important part of the verse because some children don't have parents that are "in the Lord" or who don't follow Jesus' commands. Children should not obey their parents if what they are telling them to do is not "in the Lord". If a parent tells you to steal something or lie, you do not have to obey them. You should still act respectably towards them, but let them know why you can't obey.

For it is Right - Why should you obey your parents? Should you obey so you don't get into trouble? Should you obey so we will get our allowance? No, we should obey because it is the right thing to do even if we don't get in trouble or get paid to do it.

Obey Sunday School Song

Sung to the Tune of "Father Abraham"

I am going to, going to obey
Even though I don't want to.
Jesus tells me to so this I'll do,
So let's just all obey,
Right arm.

Go through the first part with each command in the song -
Left arm, Right leg, left leg, Nod your head, Jump up and down, and Turn around
