Here is the latest in our series of coloring pages about the days of creation. This one is from the 4th day and features the objects described in Genesis 1:14-19. This line art illustration is from Mandy Groce. Be sure to check out all our Sunday School coloring pages.
We would love to hear how you are using these resources in your ministry. Just leave a comment below to let us know. You can also express your appreciation for Mandy’s work.
The coloring sheet shows four panels, each with a different configuration of the Sun, Moon, and stars. The captions say, “Signs, Seasons, Days, Years.” This is a quote from God in the Bible verse below. It reminds us that God made the objects in space. This passage also symbolically points to God’s creation and ownership of time itself. The eternal God marks the passing of time with an awesome display of his power.

14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. 16 God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 17 God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, 18 to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day. Genesis 1:14-19 NIV
This coloring sheet could be a great add-on to any lesson plan about the fourth day of creation. It would also fit when teaching about the power and eternal nature of God. His work in creation gives us another reason to worship God. Here is the link to print all our days of creation coloring sheets.
Alternate Coloring Page
This page shows another view of the sun and stars, except with the quote when God said, “Let their be light.” Technically this verses is from day one of creation, but the sun is our continuing testimony of God’s invention of light. This can be used to talk about God as the true source of light because he is the maker of these physical objects.

I am using the resources and the coloring pages as I have a vast span of age differences in my Children’s Worship. I need something to appeal to the older children so they can continue to learn but I need something basic to keep the attention of the younger children. I use the material in conjunction with other resources to have the older children help the younger children do all will be able to learn, share, help others and experience the wonderful nature of God while learning about the Bible. Thank you for these free resources as I moved into a new state where the church is very small without a lot of attention to children at this time. God bless you and your ministry. Thanks Mandy for sharing your talent!
I love the Creation artwork, I am working on a Old Testament Book Illustrated with Art Work with another writer and artist. Why I am emailing you is I have a wonderful booklet I created when I was a Children’s Christian Pastor in the 1980’s. I am now 83 and would like to give this booklet which is illustrated with wonderful Children’s artwork and great teaching. I worked with poor children in a Mexican neighborhood in Santa Ana, CA. I also taught in Korean Churches in Southern California. Would you be interested in receiving this booklet to use in your teaching children to love Jesus and to choose Him to live their life with and for? Carol Morrow
