  • Make these Good Samaritan Bags. Instead of the paper tools you could glue in cotton balls, tongue depressors, a band aid, etc.
  • Act out the story- use toilet paper to wrap the "wounds."

Activity Ideas

May Your Homes Be Filled with Love- Poster with a quote from President Thomas S. Monson 

Going on an Errand for the Lord- Pictures of things the prophet does that shows his love for us and pictures of people that need our help and love. You can point to the pictures and ask what is wrong and how could we show love and help

We'll Carry You- At the end is matching game. Kids share their stories of how they showed love and the kids have to pick the matching picture.

Be a Sunbeam for Jesus- Draw a picture of love or just have the kids color it and give it to someone they love

Jesus Christ Loves Everyone- Color and make this booklet

 I Love you This Much Card- Fun and easy card to make (I've seen it with just a string of yarn instead of the accordion paper too if you want to make it easier)

Family Love- Color and make this slider of different ways to show love

Love at Home- Have each put a heart in- if they are up for talking they can say how they show love or repeat a simple phrase

Three Meanings of Love- Use the pictures to show examples of love then color it

I Love Everything About You- Poster
