God made the animals coloring pageHere are the next coloring sheets about creation from Mandy Groce. These two illustrate the events from the fifth & sixth days of creation when God made the birds, fish, and land animals. These would be a great addition to your Sunday School lessons about God’s work of creation. They are printable, so you could use them for a children’s church craft about God making the animals.

Creation Day 5 & 6 coloring page

The first coloring page has three horizontal rows, each showing the categories of creatures that God made. The topmost shows several different kids of birds that God made. The middle shows the land animals. The lower row shows the variations of sea creatures.

The second coloring page shows all the animals together in a forest habitat. There are elephants walking along a tree line, fish in a pond, and birds on a tree branch.

Genesis 1:20-25 NIV And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky.” So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day. And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.

    These resources have been a blessing in teaching age 3-7 years old at my church. I ran a copy of the sheet from the first sheet and wrote the memory verse on it and copied that so that it had the picture of that days lesson with memory verse and I could still have a copy if I want to do the class again or use a different verse next time. Thank you so much for allowing us to use them free. May God bless you always.

    LOVE this site as a resource while I have been teaching on Creation. However, Day 5 was only creation of animals of the air & sea, yet both coloring pages include land animals.

  10. Renea Lawman says

    Thank you for the lessons. We only use the KJV but I just leave that part out and insert the KJV verses in. Thank you for the coloring sheets and craft ideas to go with the lessons. And most of all, that all of this is provided for free. I am a Sunday School teacher and Children’s Church leader of a very small church with very little resources. Thank you.

  14. robin newton says

    Love this. First time teaching Sunday School and am teaching in a very small rural church, with one every-age Sunday school class. It has been a challenge, but this material has been really helpful. Very adaptable for the different age groups. All the age groups LOVE the coloring. I use the drawings as the refresher for the previous weeks (Days of Creation). I can’t get over how awesome the coloring is. The children have also like the signing and I appreciate it as an extra activity. I am very grateful for this website!

    I am a volunteer Grandma at our Parish. I have directed the C.C.E. program for 4 years, until they hired a D.R.E. in which it is a blessing for me because i do have a very busy schedule with grand kids and a small family business waiting for me at home everyday. I had heard that there was vacation bible classes everywhere else but at our parish. So one day i asked our priest if i could go ahead and start VBS at our Parish and thank God he said, “Great!!!, go ahead.” So now i look forward for every July and the material available you have come up with. Thank you so much for your wonderful creation material and ideas. This was a wonderful turnout for our children. May the Lord send more blessings your way. Thank you!!!
