Coloring Creations: 52 Bible Activity Pages

by  Group Publishing

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Group’s Coloring Creations includes 52 Bible activity pages. With selections from the Old and New Testaments, this is an excellent starter book for any children’s ministry. Together with the Coloring Creations Kit (Assembly instructions include: craft glue; crayons; colored pencils; safety scissors; glue sticks; markers; and tape), craft items commonly found in the home or craft supply cabinet will be utilized to make three-dimensional coloring pages.

Intended to have on hand to supplement lessons or to whip out in the event of a long-winded preacher, or late parent arrival, these pages can be reproduced and stored for just such occasions.

The “Friends Stick Together” page is an excellent example. Copy the page for each child, supplies needed are packing tape and the Coloring Creations Kit assembled earlier. The What To Do section instructs teachers to (1) Have children hold the hand of a friend while you read the Bible verse (2) Have children tell you what shows the kids in the picture to be friends (3) As the children color their pages tell them the story of David and Jonathan (4) Have the children pair up and cover their pictures with packing tape (5) Have children color over the packing tape, they can’t. Remind them “good friends stay close together and help each other.” Points to discuss and pray about close out the teacher’s page.

All told, the illustrations are nice, the crafts simple for use at a moment’s notice, plus my seven-and-a-half-year-old’s eyes lit up when she saw the pages. So, for its appeal to children who probably get Bible pages every week already, I recommend this book for teachers and homeschoolers alike. – Suzanne Rae Deshchidn, Christian Book

It’s not just a coloring book…it’s the Bible come to life! These one-of-a-kind, hands-on activity pages include 52 pages of art with a purpose. Teachers will love the reproducible pages. Kids will love coloring the Bible story images then adding a meaningful 3-D element to it, such as cotton balls, googly eyes and pipe cleaners. It’s more than a fun time-filler—it’s an opportunity to engage kids with Scripture!
