In this character development series we help define the character trait and learn a Bible verse that helps get to the heart of the lessons. The obedience word ring – teaching obedience to kids – is being added to a growing list of character traits we are focusing on developing our our children. For more lessons on character, please visit my character development tab.
“Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.” – Luke 11:28
- the act or practice of obeying; dutiful or submissive compliance
- the rule or authority that exacts such conformance.
- the act of carrying out commands
Reason Chosen: We want our children to learn to obey us. If they can’t obey us, how will they have have the discipline to obey God? We have wanted first time obedience. I say to my kids, “We obey right away, all the way and with a happy heart.”
This past week made it very obvious that we needed to have “obedience” as our next word of the week. We have had great success with this training in the past, so I’m excited to be really on it this week.
Obedience Word Ring – Teaching Obedience to Kids
At the beginning of each week, the craft will be exactly the same because we will simply be adding a new word to our already established word ring.

Materials Needed to Make the Obedience Word Ring – Teaching Obedience to Kids
The girls chose a paper style they thought would look good with the letters they chose. We then I helped them sound out “obedience.” They took turns finding the letters we needed and sticking them on the paper…they’re kids – the letters will not be stuck on perfect. I then cut the paper to the same size as the paper from last week. We punched a hole in the corner and stuck it on our binding clip. Each week, a new word will be added to the clip in similar fashion. I then wrote the Bible verse on the back. If your kids are older, have them do it themselves. We’ll spend this week learning the word, meaning and memorizing the scripture.
