I have a ton of color by number worksheets here at Mama’s Learning Corner, mainly because my girls love them so much.
Even my oldest girl (almost 10) still loves color by number pages, and she enjoyed the Valentine’s Day Color By Number Multiplication packet. You’re never told old for fun learning!
Today, I have a wonderful packet of Spring Color By Number Worksheets for your Preschooler, Kindergartner, and First Grader. It includes two types of Color By Number pages:
— Simple numbers to practice number and color recognition; for example blue = 2, green = 7, etc.
— Simple addition and subtraction equations with sums up to 12

I’m always on the lookout for fresh ways to use worksheets and printables. Here are a few ideas if you’re in a rut!
For homeschool moms:
— If you have kiddos that are stuck learning addition and subtraction facts, take a few days off of your regular math curriculum and seal in those math facts! These sheets have a lot of equations on each page, so I would suggest only assigning 1 page per day while you’re taking a curriculum break.
— Math curriculum in the younger years often takes a break from learning math facts while the learner focuses on another topic – telling time or geometry, for example. Keep those math facts fresh by assigning either a few colors on one page each day, or assigning the entire page. It pays to keep math facts fresh on the brain.
— Some children just love color by number so much that they could care less that math facts are included. This would be the case with my #2 and #4 children. Keep a stack handy if you have one of those kiddos!
— Use these for the “I’m bored” times, which inevitably happen close to supper time. Or save these for a rainy day when there’s nothing else to do.
— Keep a set of these on a clipboard in the car. Pull out the clipboard and a pack of Twistables (they don’t melt and aren’t messy like markers), when you’re traveling. Or keep them in the car when you know you’ll have to wait awhile, such as at a doctor’s appointment or the car line if you have big kids in school.
I love clipboards with storage for just this very reason!
For teachers in a classroom setting:
These color by number worksheets are perfect for teachers in a classroom setting, since they are differentiated. You can find just the right level to meet each of your students’ needs.
— These would be a fun addition for your Spring math centers! Have a stack printed, or place a few in page protectors and provide dry erase markers.
— Fun but educational work for early finishers
— Place in your Emergency Sub Tub for unexpected absences
— Send as extra practice for homework
— Use during your morning work or circle time
— This can easily be modified for a small group activity: Choose the same number of students as there are colors in the color code. Each student receives a different color by number worksheet and is assigned a specific color. When each student finishes coloring in their assigned color, he passes his paper to another student until all of the colors are complete. This is a such a fun way to use these pages!
