Space Color By Number
With the temperatures warming up, we can now spend time outdoors looking into the night sky to see the stars and the moon. If we’re lucky, we can even see a planet or two.
These pages are also great for National Moon Day (on July 20) – a day set aside to celebrate the day the day Neil Armstrong stepped onto the moon.
What skills are taught?
Your preschoolers will be able to work on number recognition through nine with this set of worksheets.
They’ll also become familiar with color words as they read the color code at the bottom of each page. If your kids aren’t ready to read color words, color the word with the appropriate crayon and have your kids use that as the hint for which color to use.
In this pack, you’ll find six color by number worksheets. Each sheet features a fun space-themed mystery image with a color code.
This pack features numbers 1-9 and all the colors of the rainbow plus pink, black, and grey.
How to Use These Pages
Present these pages to your preschoolers as a segue to your space-themed conversations.
These pictures include images of astronauts, rockets, planets, stars, and aliens. Any one of these is a fun lesson for little ones.
