Here’s an idea for remembering the 10 commandments using your fingers!

Food Activity - Stone tablet iced lollies

Have a go at making these delicious summer fruit lollies.  You need to carefully follow the instructions (just like following the Ten Commandments) but they will be worth the wait!

Iced lollies on a plate

  • Five large carrots
  • Juice of three large oranges
  • Zest of one orange
  • One satsuma, peeled and chopped
Step 1 - Wash and then finely grate the carrots. Place the gratings in the middle of a clean tea towel
Step 2 - Gather up the towel and squeeze the carrot juice into a jug. Set the pulp aside to use in a soup or pie.
Step 3 - Add the orange juice and top up with cold water to make 360ml of liquid. Stir in the orange zest and satsumas.
Step 4 - Pour the juice into your lolly molds (with lolly sticks in place) and place in the freezer. Leave overnight.
Step 5 - Wait for a sunny day and enjoy your vegan, gluten-free lollies in your garden or on a local walk.

A list of swimming pool rules

Like the swimming pool rules, the Ten Commandments are rules which God gave us to keep us safe and happy.
