Paul and Silas in Prison

Paul and Silas in Prison
Acts 16:16-40 

This is a sample I made of a take home for this story.  I found a coloring page that looked like Paul and Silas.  I reduced it to the size I needed.  I was able to fit four on one page.  I printed it on cardstock.  I punched 4 holes at the top of the picture and 4 holes at the bottom.  Then I let the children color it.  I gave the children a long piece of yarn.  I rolled a piece of scotch tape tightly on one end so it would make it easier for the children to "sew" and lace up the picture. 

I have had several requests for this coloring page. I drew my own picture to go with this instead of posting the coloring page.  

I put two on a page.  To download the picture, click here.

  2. Where did you find your coloring sheet? We are doing a lesson on Paul and Silas for our VBS and I would like to find this coloring sheet if possible. This is a great idea for a craft.

  6. Thank you for such a wonderful idea. I had 2 and 3 year olds for Bible School. I replaced the yarn with fuzzy sticks and that worked out great for them. They loved it.
