Heroes of the Bible: Mega Bundle Review by Jacquelin Caffey

Digital Coloring Pages
Matt Ebisch

Heroes of the Bible: Mega Bundle is a 40+ page digital coloring pages bundle filled with Bundle Packs 1,2, and, and also the Nativity Six Pack. Bundle Packs 1-3 contain blackline masters of some of the Bible’s most famous people. The Nativity Six Pack is a six-page coloring set depicting the scene of Christ’s birth that can be assembled into a huge poster. For just $10.00 you get access to 40+ pages you find anywhere else on the web.

This is a downloadable product that is ready to use right from the start after you download, just supply a coloring source like crayons, colored pencils, or markers. We have been using these pages during our morning time recitations. My younger girls normally color a sheet while I read from the Bible or reading from any book. With Christmas quickly approaching we have been working on our Nativity Six pack a little bit each day. I plan to laminate the pages together so that it will be a true keepsake poster for years to come. I have recently rediscovered the joy of coloring and I am coloring a Nativity set to send to a friend also. With the Nativity set, it is recommended to color the pages of this set first and then assemble into a beautiful poster of the Nativity.

Overall, I love this set! The coloring pages offered provide enough variety and many different people in the Bible. I love that when my six-year-old had questions about Samson I was able to pull up the coloring sheet for him. She enjoyed having a visual depiction of him to color the way she thinks he would look like. My only thing I would change with these coloring sheets would be to have a wider margin so that the sheets could be hole punched. I like to keep the loose papers in our yearly work binders. The way the sheets are now, the name of the Bible figure would be cut off. However, this is not a deal breaker for us enjoying these pages one bit.

If you are looking for a comprehensive set of coloring pages that feature Bible figures, then this is the set for you. Having these coloring pages at our disposal everyday has been a positive experience for all of us and I would recommend them to all families who would like to add the option to color while learning.
