If you’re looking for a fun math activity to add to your B is for bee lessons this spring or summer, you don’t want to miss these color by number worksheets.
Not only will these activity pages keep your little ones busy, but they’ll help reinforce early math and motor skills, as well.
Preschoolers will love following the color code at the bottom of each page to reveal each of the hidden pictures in this pack.
Color By Number Bee
These fish-themed color by code printables are a fun way for preschoolers to practice number recognition through eight.
They’ll also practice reading color words for all of the colors of the rainbow plus pink, brown, black, and grey.
HOW TO USE THE PAGES
To begin, print out the pages in this worksheet packet. I like to print them on standard printer paper.
Grab your preferred coloring medium. I prefer for my kids to use crayons – Crayola crayons to be exact. I think Crayola crayons color smoother than any other brand.
Your preschoolers can also use markers or colored pencils, if you’d prefer.
If your preschooler isn’t ready to read and identify color words yet, set out only the crayons they’ll need to complete the page.
Use those crayons to color the color word on the worksheet. Then, preschoolers can use those as visual cues to decide which crayon to use.

The Honeybee Man – Every morning, Fred climbs three flights of stairs—up to his rooftop in Brooklyn, New York—and greets the members of his enormous family: “Good morning, my bees, my darlings!”
His honeybee workers are busy—they tend the hive, feed babies, and make wax rooms. They also forage in flowers abloom across Brooklyn… so that, one day, Fred can make his famous honey, something the entire neighborhood looks forward to tasting.
The Life and Times of the Honeybee – Why do beekeepers use smoke machines when collecting honey? Can a bee really sting only once? Why do bees “dance”?
In concise, detailed text and abundant illustrations that range from the humorous to the scientific, Charles Micucci offers a wide-ranging and spirited introduction to the life cycle, social organization, and history of one of the world’s most useful insects.
