Color By Number Cinco De Mayo
With Cinco De Mayo coming up, it’s time to start thinking of some fun ways to celebrate the day. I especially love activities that the kids can work on by themselves. When the adults are busy preparing the house, cooking food, or entertaining guests, it is nice to know the kids have something fun and simple to do.
Color By Number sheets are the perfect enriching activity! The kids can grab their markers, crayons, or colored pencils and color to their heart’s content.
Benefits of Color By Number Cinco De Mayo
While they are coloring, the kids are learning so many skills without even realizing it! Some of these skills include:
- Following instructions.
- Reading skills.
- Fine motor skills.
- Color and number recognition.
I love that there is not much preparation or clean up involved with this simple activity. That makes my day just that much easier. They can sit at their table and happily color while I get some stuff done around the house.
Another reason to love Color By Number sheets is that they are so easy for on-the-go. You can print enough for your class at school (this activity is especially great for a substitute). At home for a fun family evening or with friends at a party these coloring sheets will be a hit! Or even pull them out while you’re waiting at the restaurant for some tacos. Wherever you go, your kids are easily able to do this activity.
Tips and Tricks
- A great hack for extended fun is to laminate the coloring sheets. Then, grab some dry erase markers and your kids can keep coloring again and again!
- Experiment with different media if you have some extra time for a little more preparation and clean up. You can use watercolor or regular paint to fill in the colors. Maybe even try finger painting to color the sheets in! You know your kids love getting their hands dirty, and they will love to make this memory with you!
