Rainforest VBS Coloring Pages

By Carol Rogers

Each year I create coloring pages for the younger VBS attendees at our church, to help them learn the daily Bible verses. Children who finish an activity early can move to a coloring table and color the verse pages. As they work, an adult helper encourages them to say the memory verse. If they say it correctly (with help), they are given a special sticker or bookmark or plastic VBS character. The coloring pages are sent home with the children each day so their parents can help them learn or review the verses during the week of VBS.

Here are some coloring pages we’ve created for the SonQuest Rainforest VBS. There is a coloring page for each day—a total of five. Each page has the daily memory verse (in the New International Version). Some of the verses are shortened for easier memorizing. You can download these five coloring pages for just $1.99 for the set! You can copy as many of these coloring pages as you need for your VBS program. 

If you use a different Bible version than the one given, feel free to cut off or white out the verse and replace it with the version you prefer.

Check back each week for additional coloring pages—we’re working on a set for Hero Headquarters; High Seas Expedition; Egypt: Joseph’s Journey; and Kingdom of the Son. The coloring page shows a Bible story or a picture of Jesus or God’s Word in addition to the daily Bible verse and theme. If you have another VBS program for which you’d like coloring pages, just leave a comment.

If you’d like to take a look at any of these VBS Starter Kits, visit Shop VBS for more information and to order your starter kits for a risk-free, 30-day review.

May God bless you as you teach children (and families) about Jesus through your Vacation Bible School!
