Other Tips for Using Free Printable Coloring Pages For Kids
- Use a verse on God’s love to talk about how to show His love in your daily life. If we don’t apply the Word, it cannot work within us. Let your children know how important it is to apply the Word every day. Ask them if they know that God loves them? Then talk about what God’s love means to you and to them.
- Carry it with you as a reminder of what you’re focusing on with your family right now. This will help you find opportunities to discuss the verses or the topic with your family, friends, and others you may be around. It’s a natural way for a discussion to start.
- Use the verses on peace to talk about the turmoil that’s in our world right now. Make sure that your kids understand what the difference is between the peace that Jesus left us with and the world’s peace. Even older children may have trouble understanding the difference between the two and in order for them to apply it, they need to know how to find God’s peace instead of what the world offers. These free printable bible verse coloring pages are a great way to do this. Even if they don’t want to color them, you can still print it and give it to them to read or pray about.

Ways to Use Your Free Printable Bible Verse Coloring Pages
Just do a Google search for Free Scripture Printable for Kids and you will find lots of them. You can also omit ‘free’ and you will find many affordable things you can download for kids. Here are some tips on using the free printable bible verse coloring pages for more than just coloring. You can combine fun, learning, and family activities.
I would encourage you to do these exercises as a family as well. If you have family members who don’t like to color, just have a family discussion about the page you and/or your kids have already colored. It’s a great way to help your children learn to discuss openly and see things in new and different ways. Your 15-year-old son will probably view and apply a scripture much differently than his 8-year-old sister. So, times of family discussion are helpful teaching moments.
You can do coloring contests to see who gets done first, who uses the most colors, or who has the most fun. Of course, if arguments follow the exercise, you might want to just stick with seeing who has the most fun. Think of other fun ways you can inspire your kids to color.
Find The Verse
Make sure everyone has their Bible and then each one can look up the verse in their own Bible. If there are different translations, it will be fun to hear the same Scripture in a variety of ways. This will also help spark conversation and give your kids practice in finding Books of the Bible along with certain verses.
How To Apply The Verse
If the verse is topical like the ones here, you can have a discussion about the topic and ask your kids questions about how they can apply the topic. For instance, with gratitude, ask them what they can do to show more gratitude to their family or friends. For a verse about peace, you can ask them what they think that means. Or, for older children, you can ask them what things take away their peace and then talk about how to keep your peace in difficult situations.
Find A Similar Verse Challenge
Challenge your children to find another verse on the same topic like gratitude, peace, or God’s Love. If they don’t know how, this will be a great time to introduce them to their Bible Concordance, an adult Study Bible with references, or an online app like BibleGateway.com, which they can use to find other verses that relate to the verse they have colored. Again, it’s a great exercise in learning how to study your Bible now!
