he offers his own money without seeking reimbursement, and the Samaritan came back to check on the man to see if he was in good health and to pay any unpaid debt.

- Colour and cut out.
- Cut down the ridge in the background so the robbers can hide behind it.
- Tell the story using the characters! Use the story for teachable moments. Ask questions like, “Why do you think the Samaritan helped the man when the other two religious men didn’t?” “Have you ever not wanted to help someone? Let’s talk about that.” “Have you ever been hurt by someone? Did you show them kindness or did you want to hurt them back?”
