These free printable Nativity coloring pages are the perfect way to de-stress from a busy holiday season and focus on the true meaning of Christmas. Each page features a Bible verse related to the Birth of Jesus. The pages are suitable for older children, teens, and adults.
Bible verses featured in these coloring pages include selections from Isaiah, Matthew, John, James, Corinthians, and Galatian. It includes popular verses John 3:16, Isaiah 9:6-7, Matthew 1:21, and Matthew 2:10-12.
The pages have varying difficulty. Some of them are easier and suitable for kids and older adults and a couple of them have beautifully detailed, stained glass-like images to color. My family loves coloring these Nativity coloring sheets. I hope yours does, too.

The best printer paper for coloring pages
I recommend using 32 lb bright white paper for coloring pages. It’s thicker than copy paper, which means it’s less likely to experience bleeding and feathering. It’s also smoother for a more enjoyable coloring experience. If it’s out of stock, this HP 24# paper is my second favorite choice. It’s still thicker and brighter than standard paper and it cost a couple of dollars less than the 32# paper.

The best & markers for coloring
My favorite markers for “everyday” coloring are inexpensive Crayola Supertips. They’re affordable, easy to find, and fun for kids and adults. They have a fine tip for details, but can also be used on the nib’s side for broader areas of coloring.
Colored pencils are my personal favorite coloring tool. Prismacolors are my favorite colored pencils for coloring. Even the “student” lines of Prismacolor colored pencils are softer and creamier than brands like Crayola. Prismacolors color easily and are great for blending.
- Soft, thick cores are perfect for shading and shadows
- Ultra-smooth, even color laydown
- Lightfast, richly saturated pigments
My family has fallen in love with multicolored pencils. I haven’t found the perfect set yet, but my favorites so far are these multicolored pencils. I don’t love every single color in the box, but I really use my favorite pencils constantly. We also use these tricolor pencils. I like the greens and blues in this set.
The image below is obviously not from these Nativity themed coloring pages, but you can see the multicolored pencils in action below: (The page is from this space girls outer space coloring book.)
