This coloring page is week three of our printable Advent coloring book. Each of these original illustrations were created by Mandy Groce to help children understand the meaning of Christmas is Jesus.

Directions: Simply click the preview picture to the right to download this coloring page as a print-friendly PDF file. We’ve also made a higher resolution jpeg file available for anyone who needs to do advanced editing.

Here is how Mandy describes this picture:

Week three is meant to represent our joy beyond things seen (material blessings vs. eternal joy).  The little girl in the scene is full of joy over the Lord regardless of her humble dress.  The children in the background are clinging to their piles of gifts without understanding such joy.

    This is just so great,in our community/countryt the candle n wreath thing isn’t really well known.However am still going to use it to help the children in our organisation to understand the real meaning of Christmas since i work with needy kids.I’ll just pick two or three of the pics and use them.But this is excellent,makes teaching about x-mas easy.

    I will add the pictures along with the description on our Church’s Facebook Page. I will also probably use the description as a caption for pictures I take of our Church’s Advent Wreath. I will also share with my daughter who is an Assistant Pastor at a local church.
