Looking for a way to keep your child occupied while teaching them the Word of God at the same time? Christian coloring pages for kids are a great tool you can use to do just that. As your children color pictures of Bible stories or characters, it will help reinforce their knowledge of the Bible and of God.
You might have heard of alphabet color pages that are used to teach preschool kids and toddlers. They are taught alphabets and relate them with their surroundings. Similarly the Biblical coloring pages are there too for getting direct print from your computer and show them to your children. The world of web has been really delightful in these matters. You can find ready made color pages in hundreds of styles and colors that also contain Biblical themes, stories like Noah’s Ark, the Whale, miracles of Jesus, about the birth of baby Jesus, Mother Mary, Easter, Gift of Magi and alike. The use of these coloring sheets is perfect to teach preschool children the values and morals of Christianity, the true meaning of religion and how to become pious.
Give it a try! Print out a few Christian coloring pages for your kids and see how they respond. It’s a great way to keep them thinking about the things of the Lord.
There are so many different pictures available that you may have better success using specific terms like ”Jesus healing the blind man coloring page” or ”Tower of Babel coloring page,” as examples. This is a great idea if you’re looking for a coloring page to compliment your evening devotions or a Sunday School lesson at church. In those situations, you can let your children color in a picture that represents the Bible story you are teaching them. After they are done coloring, they can tape their picture in their bedroom, which will help them remember that particular Bible story.
All types of alphabet coloring pages available over the internet are an extension of Preschool Alphabet activities and crafts work. They have been designed in such ways that create interest in the minds of children. Simply teaching the preschools with boring alphabets may have negative impact on them. They may not find things interesting and may feel that you go too strict with them when they cannot pronounce or write the letters or able to relate to objects or things that start with the any alphabet initially. For instance they may find it difficult to remember tough words like ’H for Horse or House or Home.’ You may think it is silly, but remember they are small kids, what is easy for you may not be easy for them.
Coloring pages can provide enrichment by providing pictures of numbers, letters, animals, and words, so that your child will expand their knowledge in a number of areas. Your child will receive the greatest educational benefit when the coloring pages bring all of these elements together, such as when there is a picture of an animal with it’s name written on the page, or when numbers are shown with the name of the number written out, or even a two-sided coloring page with one side showing the letter, number or word, and the other side of the page depicting an animal whose shape resembles the letter or number on the previous page. Take for example a coloring page that has a number one, along with a giraffe that is reminiscent of a number one in it’s shape. Your child will not only have fun coloring the number and animal, but their lesson will also include writing the number one and being introduced to a giraffe.
