I found this 10 Commandments finger play game on Yahoo answers. It's the perfect circle time activity to help teach your children the 10 Commandments in a Waldorf style!



Ten Commandments Poem (Finger Play) 

God is one and there is no other........... (point one finger up.)

An idol makes God number 2 ............. (Hold up one finger on each hand.)
And second place for God won't do ......(Cross fingers.)

Three fingers keep our words in check ....(Hold up three fingers.)
Speak God's name with respect ............ (Cover and uncover mouth with three fingers.)

Four fingers stand for arms and feet ...... (Hold up four fingers.)
Remember the Sabbath day to keep ........... (Walk four fingers on your arm.)

God gives us parents when we're small ....(Turn palm down toward floor.)
Honor them while you grow tall .............(Raise it higher.)

Five fingers for a body ................ (Hold up five fingers on one hand.)
One finger for a sword ................ (and one finger on the other hand.)
