I was recently looking through the coloring pages for Fall 2015 and thinking that I wished we had time in our Sunday School class to use them. We have a class full of 2nd Graders each week and we are generally too busy for coloring pages. Then it hit me—I could make them coloring books!
Each quarter we get our Kids Activity Pages and we pretty much just throw away the cover page. I realized that would be a great cover page for a coloring book. Then I printed off all of the coloring pages for the quarter and neatly stacked the activity page cover on top. I stapled in three places along the left border and BAM! Instant coloring book!
I liked my coloring book so much that I had to color one of the pages. Coloring books are really popular right now. Even adults have their own coloring books. I’ve even heard of coloring clubs! If you don’t use the coloring pages that come with your curriculum in your class, consider creating coloring books for your kids. These would be great for activity books during “big church”, or for families to work on together at home and have conversations about the Bible story!
So, go ahead, make a coloring book and enjoy some time coloring!
