Happy Chocolate Sale Day! Okay, so that started yesterday, and is actually the reason for this post. I wanted to alert you to a cool item for teaching your kids or Sunday School the 10 Commandments that I made. Future Ticia 2024 has used this 10 Commandments craft so many times in my lessons as I’ve cycled through and taught my 10 Commandments lesson.
10 Commandments Craft Supplies
giant chocolate heart, foamboard or posterboard (I used the thinnest layer of foamboard, if you do that you need a thicker box, like as in one designed to hold 2 layers of candy), various red and pink tissue paper, and red or pink scrapbook paper (I linked to origami paper because it is ever so slightly less thick than scrapbook paper, and millimeters count in this project)
Making the 10 Commandments Craft
1. Trace your box onto your foam board. When you cut it out, cut just inside the lines. Check to make sure you can easily take your heart in and out of the box, for me I needed to trim my heart a little.
2. Trace the top part of your heart and divide it into two. This will let you make the pieces for the Commandments (sorry, I have no pictures).
3. Start putting your paper on using Mod Podge or something similar. I figured out that tissue paper works best because it adds the least bulk.
4. Check to see if it all fits in your box. The second time it did for me, it was a real sacrifice but I ate that second giant box of chocolates.
If you don’t want to make a heart like this, you can make a paper version (join my newsletter to get access to the subscriber page)
