For the kindness coloring pages, Many decided to create two different options. One picture has a boy sharing a slice of cake. The other shows a boy being kind to a younger girl (maybe sister) who has hurt her leg.

They begin to think of the interests of others. Bible lesson plan about kindness coming soon.
Here is our goodness coloring page. The goal in this illustration is to show a real situation where a child could demonstrate the spiritual quality of goodness.

The gentleness coloring page shows a young girl carefully holding a baby bird. This image would be a great conversation piece about what it means to be gentle in our actions, words, and attitudes.
