Deuteronomy 6:5 craft

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 says:Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

In this passage, we learn that we should love God with all our hearts, souls, and strength! And not only that, but we should always be keeping His commandments on our hearts, talking about them continually as we go throughout our day!

God tells His people to “Tie [the commands] as symbols on your hands”, so for this craft kids can make a “symbol” to tie on their hands to remind them whenever they see it to love God and follow his commands.

Love God Craft

For this craft, let the child(ren) take ownership over the symbolic nature of their bracelet. What color do they think would remind them to love God? What of God’s commands do they need an extra reminder about? Let them design their bracelet in a personal way.

Deuteronomy 6 children’s lesson

The first step is to decide how you want to make your bracelet. There are so many ways to tie bracelets that can be found with a quick Google search, so we won’t go over them all here. We decided to keep our bracelets super simple!

For the red bracelet, we cut four lengths of string and placed letter beads on the middle two strings, tying between each bead.

For the other bracelet, my son chose to remember God’s command to obey his parents. He decided to make his bracelet green to remind him to “go!”

Sunday school crafts about love

For the green bracelet, I hooked a short piece of pipe cleaner onto the end of the string as a sort of needle to make it easier for him to slide the beads on.

For this one, I braided a short section and then tied a knot to stop the beads. After he finished stringing his beads on, I braided a little more and then tied it off.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart craft

It was a super fun and simple project, but best of all it provided a hands on experience to discuss God’s Word together. There are lots of ways to remind ourselves to follow God’s commands, but the most important lesson is that if we want to love God with all our heart, mind, and strength, we need to keep His commands on our hearts!
