With Easter right around the corner, I thought you might enjoy this cross art coloring page I designed for you this week:
It is a hand-drawn original and is included in the new adult coloring book I will be announcing later this week (watch for a great introductory special).
The verse is a personal favorite: “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
Ideas for using these coloring pages:
- If your younger children have a hard time sitting still through church, let them color these Scriptures during the Sunday sermon (older kids might rather take notes with this printable)
- My children and I enjoy coloring these sheets together while my husband reads aloud to us in the evening. (For a special treat, I let them use my Prismacolor pencils.)
- I give them to my children during school time so they can color at the table while I work with their older siblings, and vice versa. (Since each of them has their own devotional journal, I’ll sometimes just assign pages out of that for them to fill in or color — that way, they get some handwriting practice, too!)
- I do one of several things with the pages once they’ve finished coloring them (and none of them wind up on our refrigerator): Sometimes we send them in letters to penpals. I might glue one into a child’s scrapbook or tack it on his bulletin board. Our littlest guys have even been known to frame them as a creative arts entry for the State Fair — there’s nothing like winning a ribbon and cash premium to motivate them to do their best job coloring future pages!
