Nativity Child Jesus coloring page
Our first coloring page features the classical Nativity scene we all know. For this coloring page, we decided not to use detailed designs, making it perfect for younger children. This printable has Mother Mary and Joseph welcoming baby Jesus to the world, and the star of Bethlehem is right above them!
Birth of the son of God coloring page
Our second coloring page features the Nativity scene but this time it includes an adorable cow and an adorable donkey. Everyone is so happy to meet Jesus! This coloring page offers the perfect opportunity to tell the story of Jesus.
Since this coloring page has so much empty space, we’d recommend using watercolor paints so kids can experiment with a different art style.

Developmental Benefits of Coloring Pages
We may think of coloring pages as just fun, but they also have some really cool benefits for both kids and adults:
- For kids: Fine motor skill development and hand-eye coordination develop with the action of coloring or painting coloring pages. It also helps with learning patterns, color recognition, structure of drawing and so much more!
- For adults: Relaxation, deep breathing and low-set up creativity are enhanced with coloring pages.
