If you’re a teacher or home school parent, this free coloring sheet might help you teach about daylight savings time (DST). It was created by Mandy Groce and is general enough for use in public or Christian schools.
The picture shows several children, both girls & boys, changing the time on clocks. The caption says, “Wind these clocks in Spring and Fall, daylight savings time for us all.”
You have our permission to remove the website reference if you need to keep it non-religious for your public school, but please leave Mandy’s name.
The coloring page does not have a specific religious message, but you could easily talk about God and his authority over time. Especially as a reminder in Sunday School the week before the time changes.
- Psalm 90:4 For a thousand years in your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night.
- 2 Peter 3:8-9 But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
When is Daylight Savings Time?
- In 2010, DST will end on November 7th. That means people who forget will be at church an hour early on Sunday morning.
- In 2011, DST begins on March 13th. That means people who forget will be an hour late for church.
