Color by number worksheets are a wonderful resource for kids from kindergarten to middle school.

Color by number sheets are a great way to work on a bunch of really important skills for both younger and older children.  

Fine Motor Skills 

In order to color, younger kids need to learn how to hold a crayon and build up endurance by strengthening their little hands, fingers and wrists.

Color by number worksheets are a fun way to get some extra practice coloring within the lines, gripping a crayon and building endurance.

Color Recognition 

Our turkey color by number worksheet is a great way to expose especially young kids to different color words.

Our color by number Thanksgiving coloring pages have a color key with 8 colors including brown, orange, red, yellow, light blue, dark blue, green and grey.

It’s a fun opportunity to get some extra practice recognizing and spelling different colors. 

Number Recognition 

A color by number activity is also a fun way to practice number recognition for preschoolers, kindergarten students and children in 1st grade.

By 2nd grade and beyond color by number activities that are more challenging and include sight words, math facts and number sets are a great way to practice math skills.
