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.
The Benefits of Painting-by-Number, Paint-by-number isn’t just a fun pastime. It is also one rich with benefits. A few include. Increased hand-eye coordination — Painting-by-number will maximize your hand-eye coordination.

It may also improve your typing skills, which can help you become more productive at work.” Decreased stress — There is probably not a person alive who would not benefit from a lower stress level. A trendy way for adults to lower stress is by coloring. Could it be that painting-by-number would have the same effects as coloring? The Huffington Post stated, “(Adult coloring) generates wellness, quietness and also stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity.” Like coloring, painting-by-number requires a good bit of focus, stirs creativity, and calms the senses. In fact, “Stress Less Paint-by-Number” is a modern brand of paint-by-number kit sold by Wal Mart and Amazon. If you’re feeling stressed, painting-by-number might help you unwind.

This painting technique could reveal a love for art that you were previously unaware of. Don’t be surprised if painting-by-number leads to engaging in more serious artistic endeavors. At the very least, it will be fun and offer you a creative outlet.
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.
