Opening Activity:
 
What Are Neighbors For?
” 
story with flannel board figures:
Read this fun story using the visualsincluded. Use tape to attach the animals to the various rooms in the house as your proceed with the story.
Laugh and Discuss:
Of course we
re never really going to be serving lions pizzas in our living room orhave hippos in our hot tub (must be nice having a hot tub and a sauna °Ü°), but we will have manyopportunities in our life to be a good neighbor. Lead into the more serious story of the GoodSamaritan.
Lesson:
 
Good Samaritan:
Using the flannel board figures and summary provided, read or retell the parable of the Good Samaritan.
Discuss:
Apply the principles in these stories to your own lives. Who are your neighbors? Be specificwith them (ex. The elderly lady from our ward, or the lonely boy at school, or even a grandparent wholives far away). Make sure they understand that someone doesn
t have to live in our neighborhood to be aneighbor in the Lord
s eyes. Think of small ways that you can show love to your neighbors (the listprovided at the end of the lesson may be helpful in this discussion).
Plan:
Put this lesson into action and plan a family service project and carry it out (the sooner the better,while it
s still fresh in their minds).
Activity:
 
My Circle of Love: Spin and Serve Game:
Take turns spinning the ―Circle of Love‖ wheel. Have
them name a specific way they could show love to that person. This activity will really emphasize toyounger children that it is not necessary for someone to live in our neighborhood for them to be aneighbor.
Deliver Treats:
Share your extra treats with someone who could use a little pick-me-up.
Closing song and prayer:

Stir to blend. Add oatmealand mix well.Drop by teaspoonful onto waxed paper. Makes 4 dozen.Or you can do it the Crain way and just dump it into a pile on a plate and let everyone dig in with spoons. Of course Glen does not approve of this method, so we usually do it the boring way!No matter how you serve them, they're pretty darn tasty!Enjoy!

What Are Neighbors For?,
Friend 
, Feb 1994, 17
(An activity story.)
Thou shalt love thy neighbor 
 
(Lev. 19:18).
 I was sitting on the sofa,When the weatherman turned white:
―Better batten down the hatches, folks,
 A storm just came in sight.
There’ll be winds like locomotives
 And about three feet of snow.City schools have all been closed.
Hunker down, enjoy the blow.‖
 I shrugged
 — 
why should I worry?I had wood to stoke the fireAnd a freezer full of pizzaIf the snow kept piling higher.My house was snug and cozy,And my power never blew,But what would happen right next doorAt the Merry Valley Zoo?Snow fell as thick as pudding.The wind cajoled and cried.Then I caught a glimpse of somethingAt my window, just outside.A knock came at the kitchen door.
I opened it. ―Hello!‖
 
You’ll never guess what I saw
 Standing knee-deep in the snow!Outside, there stood a man in blue,
Who said, ―I hate to bother you,
 But there are problems at the zoo.Could you please take a guest or two
Until this winter storm is through?‖
 I ask you, what was I to do?
 Now there’s a hippo in the hot tub,
 Splashing water on the floor.
It’s a bit peculiar, granted,
 But then what are neighbors for?I offered it some pizza,Which it ate, then asked for more.I was heading for the kitchenWhen a knock came at the door.Outside, there stood the man in blue,
Who said, ―I hate to bother you— 
 
Could you take another guest or two?‖
 I ask you, what was I to do?So I have iguanas in the sauna,And they seem to like the steam.I offered them some pizza, too,Which they ate with peach ice cream.
There’s a hippo in the hot tub,
 Splashing water on the floor.
It’s a bit peculiar, granted,
 But then what are neighbors for?I was rushing through the kitchen,When a knock came at the door.Outside, there stood the man in blue,
Who said, ―I hate to bother you— 
 
Could you take another guest or two?’
 I ask you, what was I to do?
 Now I’ve lions in the living room,
 With gleaming, sharpened teeth.They seem to like the pizza
 — 
 
I admit that’s a relief!
 
I’ve iguanas in the sauna,
 Eating pizzas by the score;
There’s a hippo in the hot tub,
 Splashing water on the floor.
It’s a bit peculiar, granted,
 But then what are neighbors for?I was sneaking by the kitchen,When a knock came at the door.There was
 — 
guess who
 — 
the man in blue
Who said, ―I hate to bother you— 
 
Could you take another guest or two?‖
 I ask you, what was I to do?So there are baboons in the bedroom,Trying clothes on with delight,While lions in the living roomRoar off and on all night.
I’ve iguanas in the sauna,
 Eating pizzas by the score;
There’s a hippo in the hot tub,
 Splashing water on the floor.
It’s a bit peculiar, granted,
 But then what are neighbors for?I could not avoid the kitchen,And a knock came at the door.Oh no! There stood the man in blue,
Who said, ―I hate to bother you— 
 Could you take another guest or two?I ask you, what was I to do?
 Now there’s a python in the parlor 
 And a terrapin in the tub.Things are getting awfully crowded,
And I’m running out of grub.
 The baboons in the bedroomAre dressed in my pajamas,
And guess who’s at the door now
 With six or seven llamas!The lions and iguanasEat pizza, hiss, and roar,
And the hippo in the hot tub’s
 Splashing water on the floor.
It’s a bit peculiar, granted,
 But then what are neighbors for?
