The Good Samaritan Craft

We read the Good Samaritan parable from the Bible. C was very intrigued by the fact that the traveller was hurt and only one man stopped to help the traveller. We discussed the moral of the parable was that we can help anyone no matter who they are.

This is a great parable for a little child to learn because they have no concept of being different. We can start from an early age teaching them to be helpful and caring towards all people. Teaching children that we don’t have to be like those that walked away from the hurting man. Helping others could be providing physical items such as a bandaid or food or it could just be a hug.

I tried to find a craft to help C remember this concept, but they all seemed way too difficult. So, I made a worksheet for her. Since we were learning colors this week as well, I added in some color practice.

C first colored all the bandaids accounting to the color written on them. To help with younger children who cannot read yet, the words are written in the correct color. Her daddy helped her focus on each bandaid as she colored. Then, Daddy gave her a drop of glue on each bandaid and she put a cotton ball in the middle. Even though this part is optional, it did make it way more fun.

This is a picture of a little girl sitting at a yellow table with her daddy. The little girl is coloring bandaids on a worksheet about the Good Samaritan Parable. Her daddy is helping her by pointing to the bandaid she needs to color.

Supplies needed:

  • Good Samaritan Parable Worksheet (found here)
  • Crayons or markers
  • Cotton Balls
  • Glue
A little girl is sitting a yellow table glueing cotton balls on a worksheet about the Good Samaritan parable. The cotton balls are being glued onto bandaids that she had already colored on the worksheet.

Directions:

  1. Have child color the bandaids the correct colors.
  2. Have child glue cotton balls to each bandaid.

Not too difficult and definitely fun!

Thank you for the coloring sheet! I was having a hard time finding something the little kids could do for my Sunday school lesson!
