This coloring page and activity sheet will help kids understand what it means for Jesus to be the good shepherd. It’s the first in our new Good News coloring book.

The first page offers some common situations that we all face. Have the children color that page and then attach the cut-out of Jesus. Use this craft to talk about how Christ provides for our real life problems.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! LOVE this colouring sheet! It’s interesting, well-designed, the graphics are very good, AND, it reinforces the main points of the lesson, which, by the way, is excellent! May the Lord bless you for all your hard work and making these available to this formerly frustrated lady who couldn’t find anything that teaches just exactly what I feel the Lord leading me, and can be easily adapted to children a couple of years older, too!

    Thank you for the pictures that I printed off free.
    They are just what I needed to teach the children about prayer at Sunday School.
    I appreciate they were free and most of all they will make an impact on the children using them. They will help the children want to pray and understand how to pray.
    May the Lord bless you in ways you’ve never dreamed off.
