This handout packet includes a 10 Commandments cut out sheet, 2 coloring pages of Lehi's Dream (one with a boy, one with a girl), 1 picture that has the 10 Commandments listed, and 1 sheet that lets you divide the commandments into two categories. There is a variety of ways you can use these handouts. I made the 10 Commandment cut out sheet so you could cut the pieces apart and either organize them in the right order or you can cover another picture up with the pieces and as each child takes one piece off they say how they can live that commandment. With that in mind, however, I used some of the words from the Primary song "The Commandments" instead of just using "No adultery" so it was more kid friendly. I only put some of the details in from Lehi's Dream so you can fill in the rest together or just color it if you have a younger class. The cute kids are from Melonheadz graphics.
