It not just increases concentration skills, hand eye co-ordination and the picking up of colors, it is also a great chance for us grownups to get some quality time with our children. It is just so enjoyable to give feedback as your youngster gets more practiced and better at staying between the lines, or coordinating the correct colors to the right area on the character on the page.
Websites aren’t the only place you can get coloring pages. You can also find Biblical coloring pages and activity books at your local Christian bookstore or at some arts and crafts stores. Giving your child a coloring book of Bible stories is great, because it allows them to see the sequence of events.
However, it isn’t just at home that they come in handy. Many professional offices take care of children. There are also parents that have to bring their children along with them for business. It may not be ideal but they often can’t afford child care or it is hard to find someone to watch the youngsters so they can take care of things.
Local Christian bookstores usually also have individual pages or reproducible coloring books from which you can make copies so that more than one child can color in the same story picture. This is particularly useful if you want to give your Sunday School students something to color while you are teaching the lesson.
By sticking your kids arts around the house (usually the kitchen or playroom) you will also be subtlely showing how proud you are of their efforts and contributing to the building of their self-respect. As time passes and they see their progression it will also teach them that with practise and persistence they can get better at anything they put their mind to. After all, practice makes perfect.
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.
