Lent, the season of 40 days, (not including Sundays) is a throwback to the journey of Jesus across the cross. Starting on Ash Wednesday and ending on the Holy Saturday, the Lent season symbolizes the time Jesus Christ spent in the wilderness, avoiding the temptation of Satan. Sunday isn’t counted in the 40 days of Lent, because each Sunday is considered a mini-Easter. Below we have got some wonderful free printable lent coloring pages for kids. And it’s not just for kids; even adults can print out these Lenten or Lent coloring sheets. Take a look!
