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.
The History of Paint-by-Number, Paint-by-number kits were first developed in 1950 by Max S. Klein, an engineer at and owner of the Palmer Paint Company in Michigan. These kits were co-created with commercial artist Dan Dobbins. Wikipedia stated, “In 1951 Palmer Paint introduced the Craft Master brand which sold over 12 million kits. This public response induced other companies to produce their own versions of paint by number.” Paint-by-number kits had mass appeal, and for good reason: they gave everyone the chance to create something beautiful. Although many art critics detested these kits, the public loved them. While they are not as popular as they used to be, paint-by-number kits are an American trademark and are still well-loved by people all over the world.
