Good Samaritan Armband

Children will have fun wearing this piece of art. It’s an armband to help them remember to help others just like the Samaritan did in the Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37).


  • Cut 4″ circle (template below) from cardstock paper, punch holes on opposite sides and string elastic thread (or pipe cleaner) through the holes then size to child’s arm
  • Cut one cross out of red construction paper using “Cross B” template (below)
  • Take 5/8 x 2-1/4″ adhesive bandage out of it’s wrapper
  • Print or write the Bible/lesson point onto a 1″ x 2-5/8″ address label (Avery 8160) or paper


  • Glue


  • Glue the cross onto the armband
  • Stick the adhesive bandage onto the armband
  • Attach the Bible/lesson point onto the armband

As you help the children put their armbands on, encourage them to be a good servant of God just like the Samaritan was.
