Color By Number Fish Worksheets
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 PREPARE THE PAGES
To get started, all you need to do is print out the pages you plan to use. 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.
How to Complete the Pages
To complete the pages, children will identify the number in each section of the page. They’ll reference the color code at the bottom of the page to determine what color to color that section. Then, they’ll color that section.
Continue in this manner until all of the sections are colored and the hidden picture is revealed.
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.
