When Eric (my awesome husband) made the Mary and Baby Jesus coloring page printable that I published at the end of December, he also worked on a matching coloring page for St. Joseph. While I know that we’re not near a feast day for St. Joseph and we’re already past the Christmas season when Eric made it, I don’t really care. I love me a little St. Joseph all year round.
Well, that’s actually kind of funny that I said “a little St. Joseph” because Eric made this Manga type drawing in a Kawaii style. (This is our favorite book about drawing Kawaii style characters. affiliate link.) We dig that cute drawing style around here. Now, on this drawing, you might conversely be able to get away with saying it’s a shepherd. I asked Eric if it was St. Joseph or a shepherd and he said he meant it to be St. Joseph but that he guessed it could go either way. If you go with a shepherd route, it might be fun to ask kids to draw in some sheep of their own.
Here is Eric’s St. Joseph Coloring Page:

*If you are having clarity issues with the printable, please right click on the image and choose “Save Link As” and download the document to your computer. Then, open it from your computer, rather than through your web browser’s PDF plugin, which can sometimes cause some blurriness or other issues. Another solution can be to download the printable in a different web browser than you usually use.
