In many churches, the six weeks leading up to Easter are celebrated as the “Lenten Season.” This Christian tradition encourages believers to give-up something in their life and focus on what Christ was preparing to suffer to secure salvation on the cross. This coloring page captures that concept in a visual way children will understand.

The illustration shows a boy passing on candy along with the text:

“Our sacrifice is little when we consider the sacrifice of our King.”

    Thanks Mandy, this picture really speaks to my sweet tooth and I’m the teacher. I will be colouring it along with the kids as I make a commitment to say “No to candy” for Lent. Keep up the good work.

    Thank you Mandy for your wonderful pictures for kids. They are very thoughtful and a nice change of pace from many of the “too cute” pictures I’ve seen before.

    Thank you for having this coloring page. The Internet is so limited when it comes to Lent, and I am very thankful you had something that was available for me to use in church Nursery. God bless you.

    Thank you Mandy – some of my CCD preschoolers have never even been to Mass – it’s a challenge to teach them something like this when they aren’t getting it from home. Great Idea :)

    Mandy, Thank you so much for this Lenten coloring page. I have enjoyed the 5 week study on Lent as well, but there wasn’t anywhere that the idea behind Lent was being shared until this page. It will be really helpful in teaching children about this important part of the Christian year.
