Color by Numbers
Color by number worksheets are a great teaching tool for preschoolers. Not only do they help with number recognition, but they also provide an opportunity to practice color words. And best of all, they’re just plain fun!
Plus, they’re perfect for those times when you need to occupy a group of kids for a few minutes (or longer).
So the next time you’re looking for a way to keep your preschoolers engaged, try using color by number worksheets. They just might be the answer you’re looking for.
What is Included?
This color by code packet includes six summer-themed images for kids to color. These pictures include summer animals, summer treats, and more.
The worksheets feature numbers 1-12. They include all of the colors of the rainbow and black, grey, brown, and flesh.
PREPARING THE WORKSHEETS
This set of worksheets is print-and-go. This means, you just print them out and they’re ready for use with your preschoolers.
If your kids want to use markers or watercolors, you may want to print the pages on cardstock so they’re less likely to bleed through.
COMPLETING THE ACTIVITY
To complete these activity pages, your kids will follow the color code at the bottom of the page to reveal the hidden image.
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.
