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.
For young children, art projects provide the opportunity to learn words for shapes, actions, and colors in order to enhance language development. By completing a coloring activity, your child can use descriptive words to discuss what he is creating and the feelings that his artwork has elicited. Coloring pages aid in the development of critical thinking skills, and your child will learn new vocabulary that can be transferred to other areas of his life, improving his performance at school and the quality of his social interactions.
