You can use free Bible coloring pages to complement Sunday school lessons...or just for fun.
If you’re like me, you may have found yourself scouring the internet for coloring pages that will tie in with your Sunday school
lesson. I’ve often gotten frustrated and ended up making my own, using
Microsoft Publisher. I’m not an artist, so I use the clip art in the
program and do my best to make something that will reinforce what I’m
trying to teach.
Why Use Coloring Pages?
The main reasons I use coloring pages are:
reinforce a point from the Bible lesson or memory verse. Sometimes just
the act of writing or coloring will cement a concept in a learner’s
To have something to send home with the children as a
reminder of what they have learned. This also gives parents a chance to
see what their kids have been learning.
To occupy hands and
minds in a productive way if “big church” goes long or when I need to
focus on another child (for example, during small group time). I keep a
binder full of extra coloring pages in my classroom for this purpose. I
place the coloring pages in clear plastic sleeves in the binder so kids
can easily see and choose a page that interests them.
The main reasons I use visuals are:
To reinforce the lesson as I am teaching.
To have a visual reminder (by posting on a board or wall) of what we are learning throughout the quarter or year.
To coordinate with coloring sheets or other activities in an attempt to, once again, reinforce the lesson.
My Coloring Pages
I have created several simple coloring pages as part of various curricula I have written.
In addition to coloring pages, I have created printable visuals to go
with the various Sunday school lessons/curricula I have written. Some of
these may work as coloring pages also if you print them in black and
If you use these as visuals you can print them in color,
or, as I have often done (to save on colored ink), print them in black
on various brightly colored papers.
