I love these Stations of the Cross coloring pages as an activity for kids (and adults) during Lent, and especially on Good Friday, during that period of 12-3pm when Jesus hung on the cross. During those hours, I make a real effort to keep our home quiet and focused. This is quite a challenge in a house full of children! But I try.
I created these coloring pages using beautiful illustrations from a vintage Roman Missal, and they are my favorite quiet, prayerful, meditative activity for all ages. The detail makes them great for older kids and adults. The black background makes them really forgiving for scribbly littler kids.
You get a 16 page pdf file, that can be printed as individual pages, or as a booklet (which uses 4 pieces of paper) To print as a booklet, I recommend opening the pdf in Adobe (there is a free version available for download here). For best results print booklets on high quality paper (like 24 weight). Lighter weight paper will work, but there will be more show through from the back.
