What is the learning benefit of these printable pages?
What I love about color by numbers is that it works on many different learning variables for the kids. Not only can they work on number skills, but they can also work on color identification skills, too.
We keep the colors and numbers simple for this activity because it’s not meant to be hard. But just in case, stay close and be there if they come across anything they need help with!
What it includes:
This printable packet includes multiple pages with varying pictures on them. The pictures are about the Chinese New Year and are numbered with corresponding colors to match.
It’s the perfect way to work on simple number identification while matching the right colors, too. When I say that this has multiple learning layers, it’s the truth!
Fun ways to use this printable:

Don’t forget to talk to the kids and see what fun ideas they can think of. Since they’re the ones doing the activities, they might as well have a say in them.
Create new color by numbers
Once the kids get the hang of coloring color by numbers, let them be creative and create their own color-by-number printable.
This doesn’t have to be anything complicated. Easy is fine, so there is no pressure at all.
Have them create an animal or shapes, and let them have fun from there. There really aren’t any set “rules” when it comes to creating this. Just let them take control and have fun!
Talk about their zodiac signs
Have you introduced your child to the zodiac sign of their birthday? This is a super fun activity to learn even more together.
From zodiac signs in the sky to talk about the animal that aligns with the zodiac timeframe, many learning opportunities are waiting!
Break all the coloring rules
Sometimes, opposite days are what it’s all about. Do you ever have those days when you want to do the opposite of what you’re told to do?
If you have them, you know that the kids also have them. When this happens, sometimes it’s just downright fun to run with it.
If you’re supposed to color the numbers a specific color, have the kids pick an opposite color instead. This is a silly way to keep them entertained and focused all at the same time.
