Back To School Color By Number

Jul 25, 2017

Activity for ages 5 to 7.

These fun color by number sheets are an easy way to get kids in the back to school spirit! Students will hardly realize they’re working on number recognition while they work to uncover the mystery pictures.

Getting Ready

There is very little preparation needed for these color by number 100 charts.

I printed out a copy of each chart (below), and my son grabbed some crayons to use as he colored. (Markers or colored pencils would also work well.)

In no time at all, we were ready to start coloring in the hidden images!

Color by Numbers

This simple, low key activity is perfect for stress free math review. Kids simply follow the list at the top of each chart.

My son started working through each step one by one.

He colored a long list of numbers blue and then shaded boxes 13 and 18 red, more numbers yellow…

As he colored, the mystery school-themed picture began to appear on the previously blank chart.

My son loved seeing the mystery image emerge. There was lots of giggling at some of his very early guesses as well!

 

The mystery number puzzles were such a motivating way to work on the numbers 1 to 100!

      Hi Mollie,
      Thanks for reaching out.
      The finished picture should be the front of a school bus.
