Keep the Commandments Color the Commandments

If you’re looking for something fun and meaningful to do with your Junior Primary while you try one of the challenging activities (like this First Letters game) in Senior, look no further! I’ll be teaching Keep the Commandments one week with a fun “Color the Commandments” singing time activity!

Teaching Keep the Commandments Coloring Pages for Primary Singing Time

*Downloads are available at the bottom of the post following the lesson plan directions included within this post.*

How to Play:

Print one coloring page per child. You can choose your favorite from the option below or print all of them and let the children pick their favorite.

Sing Keep the Commandments (flip chart here) together as a Primary. Ask the children discussion questions, such as:

  • What are the commandments?
  • What prophet helped us to receive the 10 Commandments?
  • Do we receive any other commandments or instructions in our day?
  • Where are some places that we can learn about what Heavenly Father wants us to do in our life?

Sing Keep the Commandments again together as a Primary. Then, have the children come up by class to pick a coloring page and grab a box of crayons. Or, if using the same 1-2 pictures for the whole Primary, you can have helpers come pass them out.

Sing Keep the Commandments while the classes come up quietly and quickly to pick their pictures.

Let the kids color their picture in Primary or let them take it home with them to color after church.

Extension Activities:

  • Have the children come up in groups by those that have picked the same picture. For example, all the children who picked the picture of the Sermon on the Mount would come up front together. Ask the children what the picture means to them. How is it an example of learning about the commandments?
  • Challenge the children to share their picture and the Keep the Commandments song with their family.  

Keep the Commandments Coloring Singing Time Idea

I’ve included half-sheet Keep the Commandments Coloring pages with 3 pages of options. This is a good option if you have a large Primary or simply would like to use less paper/ink. You will need to cut the sheets down the middle before Primary.

Keep in mind, you can make a single copy and have the rest of the copies made for you in the church library. The larger size is also great if you want to display them around the Primary room or up on the whiteboard as part of your lesson!
