Printable Bible Story Coloring Pages

There are many times in a Catholic school or family when Bible coloring pages are helpful:

  1. When learning about Jesus and the Bible.
  2. When little ones need work while older children are studying catechism.
  3. When you want to make a booklet about the main feasts in the liturgical year or the mysteries of the Rosary.
  4. When you want to teach about the different Catholic holy days of obligation.

Choose the images according to the stories that you're teaching and print as many as you need. Print from screen or you can also download them to your computer for future use.

My favorite aspect of using downloads is that everyone who wants a picture can have one and that I can use them again in future years.

1. Old Testament Bible Stories: The Creation Bible Story Coloring Pages

These next six are beautiful Creation coloring pages based on the Benziger Living My Religion series pictures where the children learn the Creation Bible story. 

At a glance you can show the children how provident it was that, working in backward order,

  • God created man after He created the animals and plants. Man had something to do and to eat; 
  • He created the animals after He created the plants so the animals had something to eat; 
  • he created the plants after the waters were divided so that they would have a dry place to root; 
  • and he created the earth before He separated the waters so that there was some place to put the water. 
  • All in the creation that God built. (Like all in the house that Jack built. :-)

God made all of creation from nothing.

Telling the creation Bible story for preschoolers is fun. It is a joy to see them listen attentively and marvel at what God did.

This is a huge one for little kids. They love it. God is so cool. He can do everything!

Older children can become confused if they try to overthink it, so it may be best to leave things light. The easiest answer is "Somebody had to do it. This Somebody we understand to be God."

If you explain the story, they instantly understand that there can't be an infinite series of uncaused causes. We get this story from St. Thomas Aquinas.

The first catechism questions go great with these Bible story coloring pages: 

  • Who is God? God is the Creator of Heaven and Earth and of all things.
  • Who made you? God made me. (Great answer against abortion.)

Find more in the First Communion catechism and use these coloring pages as your children learn the answers.

Preschool Bible Stories

Preschool Bible stories that focus on Jesus should surely include the endearing moment when He lets them come to Him. 

By teaching them about Him, we also are letting them go to Him.

Picture Of A Bible Coloring Page

Lepanto Douay-Rheims Bible

The Lepanto Douay Rheims Bible is a joy to hold and to read, being a bit smaller than the TAN reprint of 1979, possibly due to the somewhat smaller font. It is a 1914 John Murphy Company reprint that uses regular off white paper and retains the pictures.

I was able to go through it when I was at Our Lady of Victory School's store and, even though I really like the TAN version and appreciate it keeping the Douay available to me and mine for so long, this will be the version I buy for gifts in the future. You can see photos of it in a review and buy it at Amazon here.

More Bible Story Coloring Pages:

Of course, the Bible itself is a great way to learn or teach the Bible stories. I love the new version published by Lepanto Press at Our Lady of Victory School as it has the Douay-Rheims text yet the paper, size, binding, pictures, and maps are beautiful! Buy this Douay Bible at Amazon or OLVS.

  • Advent - the time that represents the Old Testament and our waiting for Our Lord to fulfill the promise God made to Adam.
  • Christmas - the birth of Jesus. See pictures of the Holy Family: Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.
  • Lent - the Forty Days from Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday when Catholics make sacrifices, fast, and have meat only once a day excepting Fridays when they have no meat.
  • Palm Sunday - the Sunday before Easter when Jesus entered Jerusalem so triumphantly.
  • Easter - the day of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, proof of His Divinity.
  • Catholic Saints Coloring Pages - Classic images of the Catholic saints to color.

The stories in the Bible are the most interesting stories because they matter to all of us. Adam and Eve are our first parents, even Noah and his wife are our parents - we're all interested in their stories.

Children enjoy the adventures that go along with the moral lessons and they learn to love God as they see His Plan revealed. They especially love Jesus, Mary, and the Apostles.
