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.

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.
