Furthermore, color by number coloring pages can be used to teach maths in terms of subtraction, addition, multiplication and division. How? Well, instead of putting a 5 in a shape and telling children in the legend that fives are to be colored purple, put a problem such as 3+2 or 8-3 for example, and tell them in the legend fives are to be colored purple. They have to stop, think and calculate, which is an awesome way of tricking them into practicing math while they think they are merely playing. Color by number coloring pages really come in handy when teaching little kids valuable lessons that can be applied to other things in life, such as following rules and finishing a task till the very end. In other words, color by number coloring pages have clearly defined rules, and that is the only way they should be completed; children know the rules, they should stick to them and in a way learn how to be patient, concentrated and how to obtain self-control. On the other hand, there is no way to see the “mysterious” final result unless you hang in there and finish the coloring of the image 100%. The final feeling of accomplishment and pride lingers later on in life, teaching the little ones that being focused and thorough gives satisfaction.
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.
Coloring activities are popular kindergarten games, and while they can provide ample opportunities for fun, these activities are also extremely important at teaching children about focus and concentration. It is believed that children who spend time coloring have better skills in concentration and focus. Coloring activities will require your child to concentrate not only on the movement of his crayon, but he will also need to focus on the result his coloring is leaving behind on his paper while also ensuring that he is choosing the color that correctly corresponds to the assigned number.
