Since tomorrow is National Coloring Book Day, today seems like a good day to talk about color by number exercises, and some of the principal benefits of color by number activities, and why they are good exercises to give to your kids, either at home or in a classroom setting. So here we go: Color by number exercises encourage creativity, But wait, you might say… color by number exercises give children defined colors and limits… why would this support creativity and imagination? Well, if you have children who don’t naturally want to draw or color, or feel timid doing so, color by number exercises offer a “safe zone” that kids can use to practice working with color and design. This can lead to future drawing, painting, or coloring activities.
Color by number printable give kids a chance to solve a mystery, Granted, not much of a mystery. But when you see a blank color by number page, you don’t know what it’s going to look like before you color it in. As you color, the pictures start to come to life beneath the tips of your crayons. It’s fun to watch it happening. There are also color by number pages out there that do not allow users to see what the pictures are before they are colored… they often feature strange looking mosaics that “hide” a picture in the various shapes on the page. These are also fun classroom activities to complete.
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.
