Each page includes one character (with he exception of the Three Wise Men shown together on a page with the baby Jesus) and has the person’s name in large bubble letters to color in. This set doesn’t include every single Bible character, but it does include many characters. It was difficult to stop, but with 29 pages I thought the set was getting a little large!
For professional-feeling coloring pages that are fun to color, make sure to use a nicer paper (not whatever cheap feeling paper is in the copier). You can see side-by-side companions of the best papers for printables in this post. It focuses on planner printables, but papers that are good for colorful printouts are also good for coloring on.
I use and recommend HP 32# paper for coloring pages. It may not be practical to use it for a large Sunday school class or school classroom, but if you’re printing these pages for home use it’s worth it. The paper is thicker and brighter than “regular” copy paper, which helps keep markers from feathering. The paper also feels smoother, so pencils and crayons glide and color easily.

In my experience, the best budget markers for coloring Crayola Supertips. They’re a bargain and fun for adults and children. The fine tip makes them better than many other markers for coloring details. These markers are available in a variety of shades and can be found in large packs for classroom use.
- Sold as 50/ST.
- Markers have tips that are smooth, not scratchy.
- Fine line markers with a versatile tip that draws thick or thin lines.
Some of the best colored pencils are Prismacolors. Even the more budget lines of Prismacolor colored pencils are softer and creamier than brands like Crayola. I’m a huge fan of having high-quality art supplies for homeschool use. Prismacolors color easily and are great for blending. A colorless Prismacolor blending pencil is the perfect tool for the job if you want to start blending colored pencils.
- Soft, thick cores are perfect for shading and shadows
- Ultra-smooth, even color laydown
- Lightfast, richly saturated pigments
