The 5 Best Colors to Use in Your Children's Ministry

Imagine a children's environment that draws kids to your ministry.

No matter your budget size, there is one thing you can do that will get kids excited about coming to your church.

Use paint and decorating colors that kids love.

Here's 5 kid-friendly colors and why you should use them.


Red is associated with being youthful and bold.  It stimulates the brain and causes impulsive reaction.  Because of this, you will see a lot of fast food chains using the color.  This is also why so many clearance signs are marked red.

According to a study, images that contained predominately red tones received twice as many repins on social site Pinterest.  If you want to grab kids' attention and get them active and involved...mix in some red.


The color blue is considered to be a color of trustworthiness, stability and professionalism. 

If you want to earn the trust and respect of parents, blue will help you.

A recent study says that blue images receive 24% more likes than photos with more stimulating colors like red or orange. In fact, the bluer it is, the better.


Not only is slime green...but green is associated with taking care of the environment.  And that's a big deal with today's parents and their kids.

Using green conveys not only fun, but that you care about a cause that's important to kids and their parents.


If you want kids and parents to be in a happy mood at your church...use yellow.  Yellow is not only associated with cheerfulness, it also grabs kids' and parent's attention.


Black is the epitome of sleek and is associated with power.  It can also make all the other colors above pop when used to outline or contrast them.
