Jesus Teaches Me to Love Others: Home Ideas

No doubt, kindness, sharing and loving others are values that you are trying to instill in your child's character.  As you are reading the story of the Good Samaritan, and doing these activities with your child this week, emphasize that this is the way Jesus taught us to treat others.  We are following Jesus when we share His love with others.
  • Read the story of the Good Samaritan in your child's Bible together.
  • Children learn and process their learning through play.  Use stuffed animals or dolls to act out the story of the Good Samaritan.  Allow your child to use band-aids or gauze, blankets, etc. to be the Good Samaritan and care for the "injured traveler." 
  • Bake cookies together and bring them to a neighbor, or someone you know who may be lonely and/or in need of encouragement.
  • "L" is for Love.  Be sure your child knows the letter "L."  Then throughout the week make a game out of finding the letter "L" in books you read, on cereal boxes, signs, license plates, etc.
