I created this simple coloring worksheet for kids in our church to help them memorize Matthew 22:39. I used the Agent Orange font and then drew a simple box. The kids were instructed to illustrate anything in that box that reminded them to love other people. We used this in children’s church with ages 5 – 10 yeas old.
The best part is when you make time for kids to explain what they created in the box and how that shows God’s love to others.
Directions: You can download the print friendly version by clicking on the preview image to the right. I’ve also uploaded the jpeg for advanced editing.
I recommenced doing an example page on your own and explaining that to the kids before they begin. Some examples of what you could illustrate:
- I help wash dishes to show love to my family.
- I shared my lunch with someone who didn’t bring enough food.
- I gave money to the mission fund.
- I told my friend about Jesus and invited them to VBS.
- I spend time when my grandma when she is feeling lonely.
This is a nice activities with any Love your neighbor Sunday School lesson.
This was part of a larger series in our kids church about Jesus’ teaching on the greatest commandments. Be sure to browse all of our printable coloring pages for kids.

Thank you for your ideas of the Story of the Good Samaritan – I liked the coloring page for the kids to draw how to love their neighbor and the skit version, and the Band Aid relay – I am going to use all of these this week!
I love this website! Thanks for your hard work! It is just what I was looking for to get something started at our small church.
