Elf Color By Numbers
These free Christmas printables are great for busy preschool moms and teachers. You can use them in your homeschool when you need a few minutes of quiet.
You can use them in your preschool classroom for a transition between activities or within your math centers during the holidays.
Grab a box of crayons or colored pencils, print out the color by number pages, and your kids are all set for some elf-themed coloring fun.
This pack includes six free color by number pages. Your kids will love reading the color code and coloring the picture to reveal an image with a fun seasonal theme.
Color by number pages offer preschoolers an opportunity to work on a variety of skills. First, of course, is number recognition. By matching the numbers from the color code to the numbers on the picture, kids reinforce their ability to identify numbers. This set focuses on numbers 1-12.
Color words and color recognition are two more skills preschoolers will work on as they complete each color by number. Kids will identify the color words in the color code, and they’ll use those colors to complete the picture.
Finally, coloring allows preschoolers an opportunity to strengthen fine motor skills. They’ll practice proper pencil grip and motor control which are important for later writing skills.
