Quick and Easy Ten Commandment Tablets

Mark and Grace are learning about Moses and the Ten Commandments during religion time, so I decided that we needed a visual to hang on one of our "learning walls". (Our "learning wall" has now become just about every wall in the house-therefore, "walls")
Mark posed nicely to show the foam core board that Daddy cut out the night before in the shape of our tablets. He used an exacto-knife to do this. Anything else would have squished the board.
He then mixed the perfect stone gray color with black and white tempra paint.

Sponging on the paint gave it a nice stone texture.
The kids then helped type the Ten Commandments on Microsoft Word. We enlarged it until it seemed to be the perfect fit.
The finished product, along with two of the books we are using for this unit. The main text we are using in Seton's Third Grade religion.

They also worked as a perfect All-Saint's Day costume accompaniment.
