Jonah and the Whale Printables (FREE!)
Children love to hear the story of the big fish that swallowed a man! It sounds impossible, but an awful intriguing story.
These Jonah and the Whale printables were created to inspire and uphold the biblical story of Jonah.
These printables are great for at-home learning, Sunday School, or preschool lessons.
How do we use these Jonah and the Whale printables?
I was actually inspired to make these printables during our Advent Blocks tradition. I noticed that there was going to be a devotional on Jonah and the Whale and thought, ‘how fun would it be to have some supplemental coloring pages to coincide with the reading!’
That’s how they came to be! Whenever we are doing Bible crafts and activities we like to grab a storybook bible and read the story in ‘child form’ but also directly from scripture (we use NIV, NLT, and ESV).

Jonah and the Whale Patterns

Letter J Practice
Jonah is a great letter “J” word for preschool! Need a good printable Bible alphabet? I have a great one for preschoolers here.
This is a more advanced Jonah and the whale craft option. The child can color the colorable ark image or simply cut out the already colored one. Cutting requires detailed fine motor skills, so this activity may be better suited for those over 6 years of age.
