A huge thanks to Family Christian Stores for sponsoring today’s post and offering these awesome free coloring sheet downloads!
I don’t get to post Bible crafts as much as I want. Even so, the few that I have written about in the past have been well received. As a children’s church worker, I know how challenging it can be to find consistent material for every Sunday. So when Family Christian Stores sent me the What’s In the Bible Coloring Book to try out, I was excited. We definitely always need additional coloring sheets. For me, the ideal Children’s Church learning time consists of a lesson, a craft, and a coloring sheet. So, today, I’m trying to hook you up! I have a fun Pony Bead Cross Craft, three FREE reproducible coloring sheet downloads, and an appreciation certificate giveaway! Hopefully, there will be enough ideas to keep the kids occupied for a few Sundays, at least.
This Pony Bead Cross craft is a version of the Cross Birdfeeder from a few months back.
Begin by stringing one fuzzy stick 3/4 full of beads, making a little loop at the top.
Bring the bottom of the stick up to the base of the loop and twist it in place.
String the second fuzzy stick about 3/4 full of beads. Twist the stick closed.
Fold the beaded fuzzy stick so that the opening is in the back.
Insert the second stick in the middle of the first. Twist the ends of the stick around the back of the first.
Push the two sticks together to make a cross.
Once you’ve finished the craft, you’ll need a fun coloring sheet (or two!) for the kids to color. Buck Denver Asks…What’s In The Bible? Coloring Book is a fun book that lets kids color through the whole Bible. With 200 reproducible pages, it’s perfect for church groups, Sunday School, or homeschool scenarios. The book is full of familiar Bible stories from Noah and Ruth to the parables of Jesus!
Kids have fun coloring the pages. I know, because it’s kids tested and approved. I printed off a sampling for our Children’s Church class recently, and they definitely kept the kids occupied!
We brought several pages home for my daughter to work on during her daily homework time. As a mom, I appreciated how the coloring pages sparked her interest in the characters and stories on the pages. Even if it was a story that she had already heard, she would ask questions while she colored. So even if you’re not reproducing these for a group, the book is great for home use as a conversation starter or to reinforce church concepts.
I’m happy to have the opportunity to offer my readers THREE FREE coloring sheets from the Buck Denver Asks…What’s In The Bible? Coloring Book. Provided with permission from the publisher and Family Christian Stores, feel free to print these off for home use or for use in your church. Simply right click on the image, save to your computer, and then print. If you like what you see, be sure to pick up the book to take advantage of the full range of material!
