Color by number worksheets are a popular way to introduce your child to both numbers and colors. Your child will learn to recognize and identify numbers and match them to the numbers used to label the crayons, paints, or markers to determine which color to use in each area. While this can help with basic color by number addition and math skills, it can also be useful in exposing your child to different colors. While your child will learn to tell the difference between red, blue, pink, and green, he may also have the opportunity to learn about lesser known shades. Color by number activities for older children can serve as a great educational tool, especially when it comes to math. Advanced coloring activities can teach kids about addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, while also providing skills in how to properly use a legend. Not only can these skills help to improve logic and mathematical ability, but they can also be transferred to other crucial life lessons, such as reading and understanding a map.
Have you ever tried using color by number worksheets in the classroom? If you have, then I bet you’ll agree that these pages provide a lot of fun for children of all ages the whole year round. Aside from providing hours of enjoyment for your kiddos, here are three other benefits of using color by number worksheets. Children are trained to follow instructions. Let’s face it; even adults have a hard time following instructions. I think this only means that training children early to follow directions, even for something as simple as color by number worksheets, surely has its benefits. Aside from learning the importance of following instructions to come up with a correctly colored picture, children are trained to function better at home and in school, as well as taught to accomplish other tasks faster and more effectively.
With traditional coloring sheets, your child will be able to go at his own pace to complete his artwork as quickly as he wants, so the neatness or quality of the end product isn’t a major issue. Color by number worksheets require significantly more patience and self control. Great care is needed to ensure that your child is choosing the right color that corresponds with the number listed on the page in order to finish the project correctly. The end result will be a finished product that your child can feel proud that he accomplished, giving him a heightened sense of confidence and self esteem. Additionally, there will be times when your child may make a mistake on his page. This can actually provide a valuable learning experience in flexibility that your child can use in other areas of his life. Like many situations, things may not go exactly like we hoped when completing a color by number worksheet, but your child can learn to be flexible and to use his problem solving skills to come with a way to resolve the issue.
