Okay, you are given a picture, the numbers are there within it, and you are already told what the color for a corresponding number is. How can it be beneficial? If nothing, it seems a bit simple and stupid, don’t you think? Well, not really!
Color by number pages do not have to be “integers only” pages. We like to use color by number pages to teach mathematics. Instead of giving a number for a space to color, we might give an addition problem: 2 + 3 =. Then, at the bottom of the page, we might say, “5 = purple“. Kids would solve the problem, then color that space in depending on the color given for the answer.
For children that do not naturally like to color, or need some direction, this provides a “Safe Zone” for them to express their creativity. The coloring is also presented as a game, which can help children feel more willing to participate. This also provides a confidence building in coloring which can lead to future coloring, painting or creative activities.
