Creation Coloring Pages “God Made the Sun, Moon, and Stars”

Here is the latest in our series of coloring pages about the days of creation. This one is from the 4th day and features the objects described in Genesis 1:14-19. This line art illustration is from Mandy Groce. Be sure to check out all our Sunday School coloring pages.

We would love to hear how you are using these resources in your ministry. Just leave a comment below to let us know. You can also express your appreciation for Mandy’s work.

The coloring sheet shows four panels, each with a different configuration of the Sun, Moon, and stars. The captions say, “Signs, Seasons, Days, Years.” This is a quote from God in the Bible verse below. It reminds us that God made the objects in space. This passage also symbolically points to God’s creation and ownership of time itself. The eternal God marks the passing of time with an awesome display of his power.

14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. 16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day. Genesis 1:14-19 NIV

This coloring sheet could be a great add-on to any lesson plan about the fourth day of creation. It would also fit when teaching about the power and eternal nature of God. His work in creation gives us another reason to worship God. Here is the link to print all our days of creation coloring sheets.

Alternate Coloring Page

This page shows another view of the sun and stars, except with the quote when God said, “Let their be light.” Technically this verses is from day one of creation, but the sun is our continuing testimony of God’s invention of light. This can be used to talk about God as the true source of light because he is the maker of these physical objects.

    These are wonderful. I just started homeschooling my kids with Christian Liberty Academy, and this works in beautifully with their Bible class. This will help to keep them focused and add another layer to the lessons. Thank you so much!

    I am using the Answers in Genesis curriculum this year for my preschool/kindergarten class. In the second quarter, we are studying the first book of Genesis and creation. These make a nice supplement to the lessons.

    I’m just starting a Sunday School Preschool Class, and I want to use your coloring pages as a guide to paint pictures of the Days of Creation for the walls to decorate the room. I think that will be absolutely great because your coloring pages are so creative and different. Thank you for the beautiful coloring pages and using your talent for God’s purposes.

    What a fun and whimsical picture! Much more interesting than just a sun, moon & stars to color! :) We have recently started a children’s ministry on Sunday mornings and have started with the days of creation. We teach one day per week and so far the kids are loving it! My volunteers are enjoying how fun and easy the lessons are and the kids look forward to what they get to learn and do each week. I am so thankful for this free resource that has helped me tremendously as our small church seeks to reach the children in our community for Christ!

    Mandy, I would just like to say thank you. Thank you for your beautiful coloring pages. I have so many ideas for these babies that I’m trusted to teach, and as these ideas come to me I realize I lack something~(I cant draw…lol) at all! So I’m personally thankful for your talent, time, and focus. Please don’t stop. I would even ask that you’d become even more transparent. (possibly abuse, of all kinds. From adults to kids, kids to parents, adults to adults, and kids to kids. Real-talk, real-life circumstances) This is just a personal request from me to you. And I would be More then glad to purcha$e these. To some these may appear to be simple coloring sheets, but that isn’t true; they are doors, doors that allow teachers like me to glide through and truly reach GOD’s babies.

    I’ve had a great morning with Jesus and I’m a little emotional, so I figured I would extend my gratitude for your service. Again, thank you. You are so very needed in the KINGDOM!

    I love you Sis

    Thanks Mandy. I love the comments that you made as well as your “creative” pictures. I have a set of 96 colored markers and we will creatively color your pictures. I am thinking about God in terms of “inventor” because of the words you used. I am excited to attempt to model how wonderful creation is in my eyes. He is such a great God!!! Thanks for your encouragement through art!

    I’m working with Hispanic children in a local ministry, and these coloring pages will be a great complement to my teaching of the creation story. Thank you so much! What a gift! Blessings to you and your ministry!
