Follow the colour key and watch the image come to life before your very eyes. The more you colour, the more the picture comes alive. Younger children can learn their numbers and colours. Older kids follow instructions in a creative way. They are a great quiet time activity.
I have gone for really simple images and colour by number worksheets, but if you like them, let me know and I am do some more challenging ones.
I find worksheets are a great activity for when I need to keep the kids occupied whilst I crack on with dinner. I can set them up at a table or on the breakfast bar in the kitchen.
These are also great to take to restaurants (remember them!) to keep kids occupied whilst waiting for their food.
Children can work on their math and also take on the challenge of finding the right shade matching each number.
It is really easy for you to turn any of our colouring pages into a colour by number worksheet simply by adding your own key. Make them interesting for your children by finding images that follow and coincide with their current hobbies and loves or use seasonal images.
