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.
Perhaps the biggest benefit children get from coloring pages of animals or their favorite cartoon characters is the development of fine motor skills. This includes learning the proper way to hold the crayon, marker or colored pencil they are using to draw with. When supervising young children learning how to color use gentle instructions to encourage them to hold the writing implement near the tip, cradled between the tips of their thumb, index finger and middle finger. Many children grab the crayon in their fist. Correcting this improper usage is an important first step towards real penmanship.
One of the benefits of coloring pages teaching children to identify different colors. While every child should know the basic red, green, blue, pink, yellow, the common colors, there is good reason to teach them the names of more obscure hues. Recent research shows that vocabulary helps people tell colors apart. Comparing different linguistic groups scientists have shown that if a language does not have a name for a color then the speaker has a more difficult time differentiating similar shades of color. If a child is never taught to be able to recognize the difference between brilliant white and eggshell (or rose and pink, fuchsia and red, etc.) then as adult they may never be able to tell the two apart. So discussing and pointing out the subtle differences among the big box of crayons is really an important cognitive opportunity.
Today most homes have a printer on hand and that makes it fast and easy to use online printable coloring pages. They don’t take much ink either so you can find the value is there all the way around. If you don’t have a printer at home you can often use those at the local library to print the coloring pages for a very small fee.
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.
Children who have a strong and active imagination possess a powerful tool that will serve them well throughout their lives. Coloring books and coloring pages are a terrific tool for getting started in accomplishing this task. This is because such coloring pages develop and encourage the creativity lying latent in the child. Children are able to imagine how a picture might look in different color combinations, and this simple act has the power to create a strong and flexible mind.
