Coloring books are a thing of the past. Kids today aren't as thrilled by a basic coloring book as children a generation ago. That is because these children have been spoiled by all the fantastic new methods of coloring using the computer or with fancy markers and pens. While you might get away with a coloring book and crayons for a long car trip, don't expect your school age children to sit quietly at the table coloring pictures the old fashioned way - there is a something better around, and they know it.
You might have heard of alphabet color pages that are used to teach preschool kids and toddlers. They are taught alphabets and relate them with their surroundings. Similarly the Biblical coloring pages are there too for getting direct print from your computer and show them to your children. The world of web has been really delightful in these matters. You can find ready made color pages in hundreds of styles and colors that also contain Biblical themes, stories like Noah's Ark, the Whale, miracles of Jesus, about the birth of baby Jesus, Mother Mary, Easter, Gift of Magi and alike. The use of these coloring sheets is perfect to teach preschool children the values and morals of Christianity, the true meaning of religion and how to become pious.
