Temple Coloring Pages

I saw these coloring pages, originally published in the Children's Friend in 1923, on Keepapitchinin and fell in love with them. Aren't they darling. I think I will print them out for my youngest to color during church. Back in 1923 there were only six temples in operation; the Mesa one was included here even though it was still under construction.

Ardis Parshall, notes on the post I stole these from that "these pictures were intended to be colored and mounted by Primary teachers and used as visual aids during their lesson that month."
The Arizona Temple (Foundation)
The children are all glad to help
To build the temples new,
They save and give their pennies and
They cheer the workers, too.
The St. George Temple
Oft times the little children
Are to the temples led,
And there, in water, are baptized,
The living for the dead.
The Manti Temple
Here ordinances can be performed
That last beyond this life.
The child is to its parents sealed,
The husband to the wife.
The Logan Temple
Young couples go up to this house
That they might married be,
Not only for this life alone,
But for eternity.
The Temple in Canada
A keeper is inside the gate,
You’ll ever find it so,
For only those who serve the Lord
Can to the temples go.
The Temple in Hawaii
Not only here at home, but on
The island’s distant shore
The work in temples is performed
As in days of yore.
The Salt Lake Temple
Great throngs of people young and old
Arrive by night and day,
To do the work for kindred dead
In God’s appointed way.

  1. Wow! These are dated back from 1923? That's amazing! I wish they could do coloring pages for all the temples today! These are neat! Thanks so much for posting!
